The Probus Club of St Annes-on-the-Sea

 Alexander Maitland
30 March 1942 29 July 2016

Born in Blackpool, in his younger days Alex was interested in cricket and rugby and captained Fylde R U Colts from 1958 to 1960 while in later life he was a keen Crown Green bowler at Ashton Gardens.

In 1964 he married Carol and they had a daughter and a son.  Most of his working life was spent with the Prudential Insurance Company and when he retired in 2002 he became a magistrate until 2012.

Alex was very interested in local history and for a time, with a friend, compiled a weekly feature on the subject for the local newspaper.  He was also the author of a book on the topic.  He joined Probus in 2014 and was a regular attendee at our meetings.
