Probus Clubs form a worldwide network providing regular gatherings to those retired or semi-retired business or professional people who, in retirement, appreciate and value opportunities to meet others in similar circumstances and with like interests. We give a warm welcome to prospective new members.
We are a non-political, non-sectarian male club whose members enjoy attending a wide variety of talks. During the year, spouses/partners are invited to join in trips and outings and to the Annual and Christmas Lunches.
The Club endeavours to be simple in structure and to provide opportunities for retired and nearly retired members to meet new friends, enjoy conversation, and listen to talks on a wide variety of subjects such as:
- Who do we think we are?
- Behind the Scenes of the Antiques Road Show
- The Real Dads’ Army
- The S.O.E and Henry Stephens
- Miniature Engraving
We aim to organise trips to places of interest and we hold a Christmas Lunch and a Spring Lunch at a local hostelry.
We meet at the Village Hall in Willersey on alternate Thursdays of each month. Members gather from 9.30 am onwards, with the meeting starting at 10:00. The speaker normally takes the floor at about 10:15 with a break for coffee at 11 and the meeting closes at 12 noon.
