Meanwhile, a club for retired businessmen is looking for new members to join in its fortnightly meetings near Kingswood.

Kingswood Probus Club is running an open morning at 10.30am on Thursday February 9 to let prospective members find out more.

An international series of clubs, Probus takes its name from PROfessional and BUSiness, the former career choices of its members. It was created as a social outlet for retired men, and many have links to Rotary clubs, although Probus do not fundraise. 

The Kingswood branch, formed 42 years ago, is one of the oldest in the UK. Members meet every second and fourth Thursday of the month at 10.30am at Warmley Community Centre in Deanery Road.
