Seaotn Men's Probus Club on their trip to the motor museum


Members visit the Haynes Motor Museum to see the vintage cars

Transport has been the focus of Seaton Men’s Probus Club’s recent activities – with more to come.

Earlier this month, members paid a visit to the Haynes Motor Museum at Sparkford, near Yeovil.

Displays included vintage and valued motor vehicles to be admired and several members commented that ‘they don’t make them like that any more’. True words, since the members’ modern cars all started first time for the return journey after a most enjoyable day.

Cars were again the subject at the April meeting, when guest speaker David Morgan delivered an illustrated talk on the History of Rover, from Bicycles to the Jet Engine.

His enthusiasm for the subject evoked the smell of real leather upholstery and polished walnut.

The next and final meeting of the club’s current season will take place today (Wednesday, April 27) at 10am in Seaton Methodist Church Hall, Scalwell Lane. The the subject will be Pecorama - The First Seventy Years - detailing the history of the renowned miniature railway company.
