Winter Celebrations

Probus Club of Newbury held their Winter Celebration Dinner at the Chequers Hotel on 6th December, with over 50 members and wives present.

The entertainment for the event was provided by talented local singer Diana Gough, who stepped away from her regular musical role as leading chorister and organist at Burghclere's Church of the Ascension. Diana teamed up with local pianist Oliver Williams. Her smooth and relaxed voice was ideal for the venue as she sang many well known songs from the 1970s,1980s and 1990s, including Rainy Days and Mondays, and Baby It's Cold Outside.

At the end of the  performance Diana was presented with a bouquet of thanks by Probus member and former Chairman Bill Carson. It was a memorable evening enjoyed by all .

November 2023 Walk

“On an unexpectedly dry and sunny morning a group of 11 members and wives/guests met at Bagnor to undertake a 4 mile ramble. This was initially past the Watermill Theatre and then on to tracks circling the Bagnor Manor estate. Time was taken to scan the River Lambourne for trout whilst taking a festive snack. After crossing the Boxford road at Priddles farm they headed uphill  towards Stockcross  but admired the  great views in the sunlight whilst enroute. Having been warned about deep mud and running water on the footpath parallel to Snakes Lane they crossed the fields towards the Woodspeen Restaurant. They then walked down the Bagnor approach road to join another 4 members for lunch in the new Riverside Café at the Watermill, that works well on almost every site.
