Guidance to Our Speakers

How to find us: From October 2011 Boxmoor Probus meets at the Potten End Village hall on the first Wednesday in every month, at 10.00am (for 10.30 start). The blue "tear-drop" marker on the map on this page shows the precise location of the hall. Or set your sat-nav device to the post-code HP4 2QG to get directions to the village. If you are unfamiliar with Google mapping, simply use the + and - buttons (top left of map) to zoom in or out. The village hall is situated near to Holy Trinity church the opposite side of the village green to the pub called Martins Pond. There is parking behind the hall in Common Gardens. The map actually shows the village hall as being on the green itself- it is in fact on the opposite side of the road as accurately indicated by the teardrop.

Audio Visual Guide

Boxmoor Probus prides itself on providing excellent audio-visual facilities at our meetings in order to provide our speaker and our members with an optimum experience.


We provide audio amplification for all speakers and officers during our business session using a mixture of wired and wireless microphones. A magnetic loop is installed for the benefit of those dependent on the use of hearing aids. Our AV specialist will set you up with an appropriate microphone when you arrive.


We can make available the following projection facilities or if you wish you are welcome to use your own.

1. Kodak Carousel for 35mm slides. Please bring your slides ready added to an 80 slide carousel. Adding them at the last minute inevitably means some may be incorrectly oriented.

2. We can also provide digital projection from either a laptop or DVD player.

Our experience is that user-burned media may not always reliably play back on equipment other than that on which it was produced.  We therefore suggest that presenters wishing to use our equipment may care to send us a disk or memory stick containing any support material in advance so that we can assess compatibility and ensure the technical quality of the presentation.  Speakers wishing to take up this option are asked to send material to the Speaker Secretary approximately 4 weeks before their presentation date.  Any materials sent to us will of course be returned or securely deleted as appropriate.
