The Babbacombe and St Marychurch Probus Club staged their own virtual version of a TV game show 'Would I Lie To You' .

The show, where you have make three statements and guess which ones are the truth or lie, proved so successful that it may return.

Members also enjoyed a presentation by member Norman Stacey entitled 'The Coventry Waste to Energy Plan'.

As senior principal engineer at Coventry City Council, he was responsible for the Plant’s operation from 1986 until 1992 and then until retirement in 1999 as technical director for a separate company.

Norman described  its operation which generated electricity for the national grid, and heating for public buildings. He showed a picture of the Plymouth plant which treats waste delivered from Torbay and generates electricity for the Royal Naval Dockyard.

At the next meeting members enjoyed another of Philip Kay’s 50 question quiz. For info contact secretary Philip Kay on 01803 323551; or e-mail or go to
