These are some of the previous events we have held.
Trip to Leeds Armouries – January 2024
January 12th saw 9 members visit the Leeds Armouries. We took the train, followed by a water taxi to the museum. It was a wonderful combination of fixed exhibits and live displays that were very informative and engaging. There was so much to see and do that we probably need to go back again at some time in the future.
Trip to Chester by Rail – November 2023
November 30th saw members and their wives and partners take a free rail trip to Chester from Halifax station. Another great day out and we offer our gratitude to the Northern Rail Community Partnership who made this happen for us.
Annual Bowling – August 2023
August 16th saw the annual bowling tournament take place again at Farnley Tyas bowling club and we were lucky that the weather was kind to us. Members brought their own picnics and witnessed some great bowling – the Club’s President and Vice President taking the trophies home with them. Trophy winners, please remember to return your trophy before next years competition!
Trip to York by Rail – August 2023
August the 11th saw 30 members and their wives and partners take a free rail trip to York from Halifax station. We had a great day out and offer our gratitude to the Northern Rail Community Partnership who made this happen for us.
Halifax Town Hall – July 2023
Members had a fascinating tour of Halifax Town Hall, steeped in history and funny stories.
Magic Rock Brewery – May 2023
A trip to the Magic Rock Brewery for beer and food sampling.
Probus Silent Auction – May 2022
Our first post Covid social event – and what a success it turned out to be! Held at St Francis Church Hall, over 60 attendees had a great evening out with family and friends. We enjoyed the supper, the quiz and of course, the silent auction itself. We had a record number of contributions, most of which attracted a bid, resulting in a welcome boost to the Club’s funds. Many thanks to everybody who participated and helped to make the evening a success.
An evening with Gary Don – Nov 2019
In November, our social event was an evening with Gary Don, the antiques Expert. Members were invited to bring along a selection of their ‘valuables’ and ‘heirlooms’ for a quick valuation. Suffice it to say that a few members were a little disappointed with the outcome! Before the valuation, Gary gave us an insight to the life of an auctioneer. A Sop Supper was enjoyed by all.
Skipton Canal Trip – July 2019
Another successful day out for the club, helped by the glorious weather
Annual Bowling Competition – Aug 2019
We held our 4th annual bowling day at Farnley Tyas Bowling Club in August. We had another great day out and, thankfully, the weather was very kind to us after the washout 2 years ago. Trophy winners, please remember to return your trophy before next years competion!
Visit to The Black Sheep Brewery – Sep 2018
We had an enjoyable trip out to the Black Sheep brewery in Masham. Not only did we get a tour of the brewery, we managed a few drinks along the way.
