President Danny Myers had a pleasant task in welcoming and enrolling NORMAN FITZPATRICK into membership.   Whilst it is always great to extend the hand of friendship to a new member, this was a very unusual event.  We would normally expect new members to bring down the average age of our membership – but not in this case.  Norman is a very hale and hearty 96 – yes, ninety six.

A former Probus member in Harrogate, Norman has moved into our locality and sought us out.  In accepting the greetings of all members present, Norman told us a little about his life and work – from military service in the army in WW2 to a career in teaching.
