The President welcomed speaker Philippa Machin who spoke on the subject of the Air Ambulance.

The Whisky Raffle was drawn by the Speaker at the end of her talk.

At the end of the meeting, the secretary handed out Kidsgrove Cricket Club Social Membership cards to members who requested one.  If you did not collect yours, please speak to the secretary at the next meeting.  For those of you who do not remember what this card is, as part of Probus holding meetings without the necessity of paying room hire to the KCC, all members are required to be Social Members of the KCC. This costs £15 per member and is due annually in April. Since our subscription to Probus is not due until June, the Treasurer paid the KCC for Probus Members this month. 

As a Social member of the Cricket Club, you are also entitled to use the Club House at any time the KCC is open, especially during the season when they are playing matches. If you remember to show the bar staff your membership card you will automatically receive a small discount on the price of your drinks.
