The Hove Probus Club, which was founded in 1972, provides the opportunity to meet and socialise with retired or semi-retired professional and business men who are from a wide variety of backgrounds and careers
The Club offers fellowship at a monthly meeting at which there is a three-course lunch followed by a talk on a variety of interesting topics delivered by members and external speakers. If speakers are representing a charity we make a donation
Members will also receive the quarterly Probus magazine which is free of charge
We also organize an annual holiday; the 2019 trip is to Lichfield including a visit to the National Arboretum, Bletchley Park and Oxford and a canal boat trip. There are also occasional outings, and these have included Harvey’s Brewery in Lewes, Preston Manor in Brighton and The Keep in Brighton, which is the records office of East Sussex
The November meeting is the Ladies’ Lunch at which we welcome members’ partners or lady guests. Entertainment is provided
following the lunch.
We meet on the second Wednesday of the month at the Hove Club, which is a Grade II listed building near Hove seafront. The meetings start with lunch at 12.45 followed by the talks at 14.15, which are limited to 30 minutes including questions.
The joining fee for The Hove Probus Club is £30 and the annual subscription is £35, which is pro rata’d depending on the month of joining. Lunch is £22 each month.
