Outings Reports


Devonport Probus Ladies Fashion Parade is an annual event held this year on 4th October. Three members of our club attended (Annelise, Raewyn & Judith).  It was a fun morning with the Devonport Ladies modelling clothes from Front Row Fashions, Fourways.  Sparking wine and a lunch followed the parade.


Villarett Gardens on 19th October was a scenic and culinary delight. Members and friends (including a charming 4-year-old) enjoyed a delicious lunch and the luxury of having the venue exclusively opening for us on a Tuesday.  The gardens as always were spectacular.


Happy Probus Day is celebrated in Australia and New Zealand in October.  North West Probus Club members gathered in Devonport at Drysdale Hospitality (TAFE). Deidre, Annelise, Raewyn & Rob represented Kentish Probus. Mixing with other Probus members is always interesting and entertaining.
