Probus Club

Winter’s stormy blasts were forgotten, for a short time at least, at last week’s meeting of Polmont Probus Club when Fiona Bibby described her working lifetime in the travel industry. Having cut her teeth, so to speak, with A.T. Mays, at that time Scotland’s largest independent travel agents, she struck out on her own some 10 years back when she set up her bespoke travel consultancy now operating as The Travel Architect. Based at Greenvale House, Brightons, Fiona found a most interested audience as she described her personal, flexible service specifically designed for the customer’s individual holiday requirements. Her customers, she related, were not only local or even confined to Scotland. For her most enlightening address she was thanked on the call of John Brown. President Bill Cartner was in the chair.
