Ashbourne and District Probus Club
Once upon a time we would meet at 10am every second Tuesday at Ashbourne Golf Club. After coffee and a few minutes of housekeeping we sat back and listened to an entertaining speaker. Then we had a light lunch chosen from the Golf Club's menu. We are a men only club and our wives appreciated not having us under their feet for that one morning a month. Not any longer! Our regular meetings and our (rather good) programme of events and excursions is suspended. But we look forward to resuming our old ways as soon as all this nasty business is over and done with.
In the meantime, we keep going. Every second Tuesday we meet over the internet via Zoom. About 25 of us - roughly half our membership - do this with a couple more joining our Zoom sessions every month.
NOTES OF THE MEETING BY ZOOM ON TUESDAY 13th July 2021
The 5 Minute Slot
Mike Dennison talked about his time as a newly qualified doctor. His practice was in Bristol where he was at times the duty police surgeon. On one occasion he was called to an unearthing of bones which he confirmed were human. However the murder squad’s interest faded when the remains were identified as those of a Roman soldier.
