The first social get together for members of the Probus Club of Basingstoke, together with their spouses, in over eighteen months took place at the Longbridge Mill, Sherfield on Loddon.
Plenty of chatter filled the air as everyone had much to say after such a long absence due to the Covid pandemic. And yet It almost felt as though there had not been such a long absence from meeting together, perhaps, down to being such close relationships built solidly over many years.
There were good reasons for notable absences with holidays, clash of dates, family visitors from overseas and medical appointments and of course the sad loss of two members, and also the passing in recent months of the wives of two members.
We can now look forward to the resumption of the typical Probus Club activities starting with the delayed AGM in September.
