When the Probus Club originally moved into the K.C.C., an agreement was reached whereby the Probus Club would not have to pay any room hire for their meetings, if all Probus Members became Social Members of the KCC.  This was agreed, and our Treasurer paid the KCC the Social Membership subscriptions on our behalf they became due in April, and these dues were incorporated into our annual subscription rates. Membership Cards are issued to all Social Members to prove that they are members of the KCC.

The Probus therefore does not have to pay any monies to the KCC to hire a room, whether for a meeting or a Probus Social event, other than for the tea and coffee provided at our meetings.

However, there is a benefit for you: If you visit the bar in the KCC Club House when it is open, for example on match or training days, and you produce your Social Members Card to the bar staff, you will be offered a small reduction on the cost of your drinks. After the meeting in April, the Secretary handed out the Kidsgrove Cricket Club Social Membership cards.  IF YOU DID NOT COLLECT ONE, please ask the Secretary for your card at the next meeting. Thank you
