On this site you will find information about us and what we do. So, if you're retired, active in mind or body, (forgetfulness, hip replacements, wheel chairs, walking sticks etc., don’t count) and you don’t feel old, (that’s over 40), read on.


Probus membership is open to retired professional men and women who are determined to stay active and intellectually stimulated and who enjoy the company of similar people.  By professional we mean interested in the world around them and on good behaviour most of the time!  We have doctors, dentists, soldiers, shopkeepers, housewives, local government officers, builders etc. as members. We regard being professional as being of a state of mind rather than a definition of past employment.


Each Probus Club administers its own affairs and does exactly what it wants to do.  Read our “About” and “Event” pages for more details.

Money alone won’t make you happy. You’ve got to own it.

I just got a photo from a speeding camera through the mail. I sent it right back – way too expensive and really bad quality.


For the 2020 - 21 season, Probus will be operating in a very different way to our normal practices.  A programme of speakers has been, and is being, developed for delivery via Zoom.  Zoom is a readily available and free App that can be installed on computers, phones, tablets etc.

Members who have difficulty with such matters should contact the Secretary for assistance.


The programme at the moment is obviously shorter than usual, but is being developed further as the season progresses.


Members are advised that subscriptions are now due. For this year the subscription has been reduced to £10.
