News from Probus Club of Norfolk Island

Thursday, September 05, 2019

This week the Probus Club of Norfolk Island hosted visitors from two clubs in Australia. Twenty visitors from the Albury Central Probus Club (NSW) and eight members of the Redlands Probus Club (Qld) were visiting Norfolk Island and joined our local members for a rollicking morning tea at Christian’s Cave. This was the Albury club's first visit to Norfolk Island, although the tour leader, Kathy Alexander, is a passionate friend of the island, this being her 20th visit. Redlands is one of the oldest Probus Clubs in Queensland and it was exciting for our members to hear about all their social activities despite the average age of their members being significantly older than our locals.

Like all Probus clubs, fellowship and fun are the cornerstone of both visiting clubs’ activities. Their travel tends to be more adventurous than our local group as both hail from areas rich in fascinating history and natural wonders to explore with day trips, while some of their members enjoy sharing international travel together. One of the greatest benefits of Probus is the opportunity to join up with other retired or semi-retired people from all walks of life, and to share interests. Norfolk Island is always a very popular destination for Probus travellers because of its fascinating history, diverse natural environment, and mix of people with the common love of hospitality. Our visitors were enthralled to hear about life on Norfolk Island and many agreed they will be back soon.

Our club meets every month on the first Tuesday from 9.30 AM and we enjoy interesting talks from guest speakers before sharing a lovely morning tea and catch-up with friends. We also have several groups that meet regularly including our reading group, social outings to local places like the Bounty Folk Museum, and a Seniors Yoga group starting soon. New members are always warmly welcomed so if you are looking for a great opportunity to get to know locals, call Fenella on 50628 or Clare on 53460
