Probus Senlis received its charter in 2011. Under the French system each new club has a parrain or godfather. In this case the parrain is Probus Le Touquet, the very first French Probus Club founded in 1991. The first president of Probus Senlis was Didier Camus who was succeeded by Tony Wiggan. It was under Tony’s presidency that in April 2012 Probus RTW was twinned with Probus Senlis. Tony has now been followed as President by Philippe Dupille. Probus Senlis meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the Golf Club d’Apremont just outside the town.
A group of Probus Senlis members and their wives paid us a first visit in June 2012. The focus of the visit was attendance (by the members) at our June lunch meeting. This was embedded in a wider programme which included buffet supper and darts at “The George” in Frant, a tour of Tunbridge Wells with a French-speaking guide and an evening at the Tunbridge Wells Bridge Club.
