Retiring president Coral Collins recently welcomed Skegness Ladies Probus members to the Vine Hotel for the 2013 changeover luncheon.

Coral also welcomed Tara Stafford Allen and her partner Simon, who entertained after the meal. Janet Dodsworth was asked to give Grace.

After lunch, Coral thanked all their members for support over the past year, which was the special 21st century year.

Membership has always been close to 100; often with a waiting list.

The ladies were also privileged to have honorary members, very special ladies who bring wisdom, dignity and fun to our meetings.

Coral also thanked the committee members for all their help and support, they meet every month, two weeks before the lunch.

Coral also thanked the Vine Hotel staff who have looked after us all so well.

Coral then handed over her chain of office to her succesor, Pam Powell with every good wish for the coming year. Caroline Morris becomes vice president.

New president Pam Powell presented Coral with a necklace in appreciation of her year.

Pam then introduced Tara Stafford-Allen who entertained the ladies with songs from the 50s to the present day.

After a splendid afternoon’s entertainment, the vote of thanks was given by Bridget Barker. A very good time was had by all.
