On 17th May 2017  a party of 35 travelled to London to see the Broadway hit musical “An American in Paris” at the Dominion Theatre.  The musical is set in post WW2 Paris and tells the story of a romance between a Parisian girl and US GI. It includes many of the popular songs of the Gershwins.  It was great to see Jane Asher playing the mother of the heroine. This musical has received rave reviews and our group enjoyed every minute. Thanks to Jeff Franklin for the organisation of this event.

Rod Satchwell, Woodbridge Probus Club member, is standing next to a Catalina at the Imperial War Museum Duxford during the Woodbridge Probus Club visit in the summer of 2016.

This was the type of aircraft that Rod flew regularly during World War Two.

On Wednesday 8th August 2018 an outing took place to the Broxtead Estate near Sutton in Suffolk. Organised by Jeff Franklin and hosted by Peter Youngs, retired Farm Manager and Woodbridge Probus Club member, this turned to out to be a fascinating visit. A Tractor pulled a covered trailer where the 24 Probus members and guests were seated. The tour incorporated the estate’s farmland, woodland, heathland and disused “dummy aerodrome”. It includes Sutton Common and Upper and Lower Hollesley Commons. After the tour the party dined at the Ramsholt Arms overlooking the River Deben.
