Tara Fiddyment’s letter of November 4, questions the contribution of Probus to the local community and Eastwood Town’s policy on grants.
Firstly, Probus comprises elderly local community members, many having been very active in local matters, and several ex-servicemen and WW2 veterans.
Probus organises lectures and visits of general interest.
Secondly, Eastwood Town Council has consistently awarded grants to local community groups active within the Parish.
Quite why, when she was a local councillor, she didn’t object to the award in the past is unclear, but objecting now is hardly laudable.
