Julia Redlich told News Of The Area, “Having faced periods of isolation and border line problems for friends and relations, members of the Fingal Bay Probus Club decided that they could do pretty well anything by themselves. “So the recent decision was to hold a DIY event: a barbecue to make the most of wonderful weather.” These events tend to be casual with a BYO choice of drink and BYO mains. “For those still hankering for a hot steak or sausage (or both) Roy Jeffery was on hand to help. “There were plenty of nibbles to enjoy, crisp salads and other family favourites. “And (naturally) a lot of fun and friendship to enjoy,” she said. The Fingal Bay Probus Club meets at 9.30am on the second Monday of each month at the Fingal Bay Sports and Recreation Club, 100 Rocky Point Road, Fingal Bay. New members and visitors are welcome to learn more about the club and its activities that include wine and dine evenings, walking for pleasure, comfortably casual morning meetings, wine appreciation time and a variety of guest speakers.
