Our Club was formed in 1972, and Inaugural meetings, initiated by the Rotary Club of New Mills and District, were held on 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th of January of that year. 2022 was our 50th Anniversary.
The word Probus is an abbreviation of the words PROfessional and BUSiness. However, membership is not restricted to these two groups. It also welcomes people from all walks of life. And of course our club welcomes both men and women.
Probus clubs provide an opportunity for retired people to attend regular meetings with others with similar interests who enjoy meeting socially. Probus is an organisation for active retirees who enjoy the camaraderie that belonging to this organisation brings.
The concept of Probus was born in the UK and has grown to be a huge success worldwide.
Many clubs have extensive networking, social programmes, which include meetings with other Probus clubs, group trips, holidays, and involvement in community projects, etc.
