AN OUTGOING chairman of the Wirksworth and District Probus Club has handed over the reigns.

Bob Duxbury said he enjoyed the past year and thanked members for their support, before passing the role on to Peter West. Colin Pidgeon is the new vice chairman and Alan Barton the new treasurer.

Following the AGM, member Neil Jury gave a talk about his love of music from piano lessons as a boy, through Scout Gang Shows and membership of various choirs. The club meets on the second Monday of each month at the Hope & Anchor Hotel, 10am for 10.30am and visitors are welcome. Women are invited to the next meeting, on May 14, and the speaker will be the Rev Kara Werner.
