Friendship across restrictions

East Malvern Combined Probus Club has been getting inventive while trying to maintain Fun, Friendship and Fellowship during lockdown.

It is hard to do. How to keep the friendship alive and well when you can no longer see faces or shake hands? No one wrote a “how to” guide.

East Malvern Combined members have had to be inventive. Sharing songs via emails – the secretary found his voice for writing ditties. The webmaster has turned newsletter editor and distributor of all contributions from members (friends). Committee meetings have gone online.

And then there was Probus Day on October 1, 2020. These photos show what happened. Probus items were purchased and packages assembled, something for every member. Some were posted, others were delivered by committee members.

Even if we cannot get together, we can still celebrate together.
