For retired professional and business men

Probus is a club for retired or semi-retired professional and business men, looking to continue living active and interesting lives, and appreciate the company of others. There are over 80 members, with a wide range of backgrounds and interests. Ages are from 50 years, with no particular upper limit.

The monthly lunch is the first Wednesday in the month, at Pine Ridge golf club. We have an invited speaker. Topics cover a very wide range of interests.

Most months we organise a coach to visit places of interest. These include theatrical shows, museums (aviation, code breaking/invention of the Computer, etc), National Trust properties, and so on.

Members’ "other halves" and friends are welcome on these trips.

We have an annual holiday, in the UK or abroad, lasting five or six days. These are organised by a commercial holiday company. As a group of around 50 people we have our own coach at the destination. Thus we are able to vary the itinerary to suit our own wishes. Wives and Partners are of course invited.

Our two "formal" events, where wives and partners are invited, are the Christmas lunch, and the President's dinner in April.

If you would like to attend a lunch as a guest, to see what sort of people we are, any member can invite you. Or else contact the club Secretary by sending an email to
