Probus Club

President Alan Hay welcomed the members and guest speaker Marion Thomson. After dealing with club business the president invited Marion to address the members on the subject of ‘Fire Safety in the Home’. Marion delivered a most informative, interesting talk, perfectly suited to the senior audience. Fire remains one of the most significant dangers in and around the home. The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service work with individuals, communities and businesses to ensure that they are equipped to prevent fires happening, protect themselves from risk of fire and minimise injury and damage should that occur. The vote of thanks was given by Hugh Johnston. The next meeting will be October 13 and will be an extraordinary meeting when some constitutional issues will be discussed.
