1) IMPORTANT NOTICE — Coronavirus (Covid-19)

After taking med­ical advice from within our own mem­ber­ship, for which we are grate­ful, and mind­ful of the fact that the age of our mem­bers cur­rently ranges from 62 to 93, with an aver­age of 77, an emer­gency meet­ing of the com­mit­tee of Stumperlowe Probus Club has today taken the decision to sus­pend all future gath­er­ings until at least the date of our Annual General Meeting on 11th May 2020.

We apo­lo­gise to all speak­ers who had agreed to visit the club during this time, and we hope that it will prove pos­sible to rearrange all talks and present­a­tions for future dates.

A fur­ther announce­ment will be made in due course as the situ­ation unfolds. Please watch this web­site for more details. Meanwhile,  the Chairman and mem­bers of the com­mit­tee trust you will stay safe and we will all meet again in due course.

2) * Sheffield City Council have opened a ser­vice for vul­ner­able people and those over 70 who need help and sup­port in an emer­gency over such items as food, gas and elec­tri­city, med­ic­a­tion, etc. The number to ring  is 0114 205 7120, and it is open 9–5 Monday to Friday.
