SALTASH PROBUS CLUB
Now in its 22nd. year, the Club has enjoyed some successful meetings and events over the last few months. In May we had an interesting talk by local historian Martin Lister about the various social events in Saltash from the Norman times through the ages to the present day.
On 6 June members and guests celebrated Jubilee week with a buffet lunch at Ashtorre Rock Community Centre followed by an absorbing illustrated talk by local mountaineer Edward Buckingham about his climb up Mount Everest. Two weeks later we enjoyed a boat trip up the river Tamar to Morwellham Quay.spending two hours there before returning to Saltash.
At our meeting on 4 July we welcomed guest speaker Sue Hooper MBE (four times former Mayor of Saltash) who described the tragic life of Violette Szabo a young undercover agent sent into France immediately after D-Day. At our second July meeting, Sue Murch and Muriel Hocking gave a fascinating very well illustrated talk about their adventure trekking in the Himalayas.
