Bishopsteignton Probus Programme 2020/21

The original programme was prepared in January 2020 for the forthcoming season from September 2020 to May 2021. The impact of COVID on the programme has been significant, with the need to have presenters willing to use Zoom.
Below is the revised Programme which we hope you will find interesting and uplifting in these difficult times.
So, if any villager would like to join our zoomed Probus talks as a guest, they would be very welcome. Simply email our Secretary, David, giving your email address and when he issues the ‘invitation to join the meeting’ shortly before the meeting date, David will include guests’ invitations with the members’ invitations.
