Stone resident is new Probus president

Dr Alan Swale being congratulated on his inauguration as President of Longton Probus Club by the outgoing President, Mr Howard Bayley.

At the recent AGM of Longton Probus Club, Stone resident Dr Alan Swale was inaugurated as the 42nd president of the club.

The club numbers over 70 members and meets at the Upper House, Barlaston, for lunch each month.

It has a very active programme of outings which are also enjoyed by members’ partners and friends. This extends to two five-day holidays, this year one in Cardiff and the other in the North Yorkshire Moors.

The club’s post-lunch talks cover a wide range of topics; the first one of the new club year, given in April, was by another resident of Stone, club member His Hon. Judge Granville Styler. In this he entertainingly sketched out his life of a Circuit Judge and his leisure pursuit of carriage driving.
