Marple and District Probus Club


Meetings and Speakers


We gather together at approximately 10.00am, sign in, contribute £1.00., and then our meeting is then opened by our chairman, at 10.15am and will include any announcements or information to members, then a speaker usually gives us an interesting talk with a ten minute break at 11.00am giving members a chance to meet old friends and have a natter as well as a beverage of members own choice and a biscuit or two.

Our thanks to the ladies or gentlemen of Marple Senior Citizens Association who provide the cups of tea and Coffee.
