The objects of the club are to foster Friendship, Goodwill and Understanding and
to provide opportunities for members to keep in touch with educational, scientific
and social aspects of life. Membership is open to men and women of goodwill without
reference to age, situation of residence, who have fully retired or partially retired
from their normal occupation. We have no Political, Religious, Charity or other
Meetings are held fortnightly, (from September to April), on Thursday mornings at
10.00 am at St Margaret’s Church Hall, Tag Lane, Ingol, Preston. PR2 3ZU.
That’s the Official Line but in reality Probus is about providing all the good bits
of being at work like chatting, swapping information, mutual understanding, information
gathering, social events, new experiences etc. but excluding all the bad bits like
office politics, clients and customers,
MORE ABOUT US
Retirement can come too early for many people who want and are able to remain active.
Probus clubs are organizations for men and women who have retired from their profession
or business and want to maintain a social network with others who have similar interests.
Each Probus club is sponsored by a Rotary Club and meets at least once a month for
fellowship and to hear guest speakers. Today, there are over 300,000 members in approximately
4,000 Probus clubs worldwide. Potential Probus members are not required to be past
members of Rotary. Not all Probus are organised in the same way as we are, in fact,
each Probus Club “does it’s own thing”.
Once established, the Probus club becomes an autonomous organization and its members
take over leadership.
HOW WE ARE ORGANISED
The Clubs Officers and Committee members organise things. The core activity is the
speaker programme, once a fortnight from September to May. There are other events,
like the summer Bowling Competitions, May Outing and Ladies Day Lunch, that take
place regularly, but there is nothing to stop the development of other activities
should members support them. Members pay £30 per year subscription, buy the odd
raffle ticket, and pay for any events they take part in at cost.
