Kelvingrove museum. Friendship group Kelvin Probus is inviting new membersGlasgow West End Today

Friendship club open to new members in West End

Regular meetings are held at Hillhead Sports Club

We were delighted to see more than a dozen new faces at our autumn meeting recently.

Many of those who came along had never heard of us before and were encouraged to attend our group after reading about us locally. We really hope more of you will check us out and see if Kelvin Probus is for you.

If you are a retired professional, business or academic person, male or female and live west of the River Kelvin and north of the Clyde, there is a warm welcome waiting for you.

The Club provides a regular locus for those who are now retired, either partly or fully, and have led busy and fulfilling lives and perhaps now find that occasionally time hangs heavy on their hands, that that they miss the social interactions of the work-place or that family support is no longer what it once was.

The Club affords an opportunity for good conversation, intellectual stimulus and the chance to widen your circle of friends.

It does this through regular meetings when you can listen to and contribute to stimulating discussions led by experts and enjoy walks and outings to places of interest and other events.

Tuesday mornings are the regular Probus time. There are meetings (11am for a 11.30 start) twice a month at Hillhead Sports Club from September through to May, with tea and coffee before a talk or presentation from an expert in a wide range of subjects followed by a Q & A session.

 

If you are a retired professional, business or academic person, male or female and live west of the River Kelvin and north of the Clyde, there is a warm welcome waiting for you.

Kelvin Probus

 

On the intervening Tuesdays there are group walks with colleagues around Glasgow and surrounding areas or a guided visit, often taking in a local hostelry.

Recent talks included the heroic stories of Ernest Shackleton’s other team on the Antartic ice, 175 years of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and Cop26 … what’s next?

Future talks include the future of Glasgow, the history of Scottish medicine, Scotland in 2070, classic music, education, and the fire service.

The annual subscription is £40 per head. Members can invite people they know, whether as potential members or because they are attracted by the topic of the day. This gives guests a feel for the club before deciding whether to join.

We look forward to hearing from you and / our welcoming you at Hillhead Sports Club.

  • Seansfanclub profile imageThis is an overhead view of my local park. Tollcross Park in Glasgow. There’s a rose competition held there every year. The park is tended by Council gardeners. The design in rose trees is Mackintosh’s Glasgow rose, isn’t it beautiful. #proud #Glasgow 🌹 Twitter embedded image 1 day ago by Seansfanclub

    GlasgowCC profile imageSadly, there are tree removal works that must take place in the woodland around Kelvin Way and Hillhead Primary next week (w/b 13 March), as a number of Ash trees have a disease called ‘Ash Dieback’ and cannot be saved 😞🌳 (1/2) Twitter embedded image 1 week ago by GlasgowCC

  • is_glasgow profile imageThis is the Ruthven Lane Cat in the west end of Glasgow, and its a bit of a mystery. It's high on a wall on the back of an old tenement building, and it really doesn't look like it belongs there.
