Our club was formed in 1973, sponsored by Long Eaton Rotary Club. It currently has a membership of 40+ members. The main aim of the club is to provide good fellowship and new friendships with others who have similar interests.
Probus Clubs were established to sponsor the interests of retired professional and business men. Membership requirements for the club have become more relaxed over the years; the main consideration being to continue meeting the aims of the club.
When We Meet
We hold a members-only meeting on the first Thursday of the month; meeting at 10am. At each meeting members enjoy a selection of guest speakers dealing with a variety of subjects. Meetings close at about noon.
Guest are welcome to attend by invitation. Anyone else wishing to attend, either as a visiting member of another Probus club, or with an interest in possibly joining the club, should contact the secretary on the email link below.
In addition to the monthly meetings, other events and excursions are organised throughout the year.
