A little bit more about who we are and what we do
Retirement is about enjoying free time to do what you want. Some people have a clear idea of what they will to do after retiring but with others, for whom work has been a big part of their social life, there is a gap to fill.
The solution for many is to search out local clubs, societies and community groups for ways to enrich their minds, maintain an interest in current issues, meet people, make new friends and enjoy new experiences.
In the Preston area, Preston Forum Probus Club is one of the local organisations helping to fill that gap by providing a healthy mix of informative talks and social contact in a relaxed, friendly and informal environment.
The club is open to retired and semi-retired men and women from all walks of life. Our meetings are held between 10:00 and 12:00 every other Thursday morning from September to April. After tea and coffee and a chance to socialise with fellow members, we feature a talk from a speaker on a subject that informs, educates and often amuses.
Sometimes our meetings are held in local places of interest and we occasionally go to restaurants for lunch.
During the Summer we arrange a visit to a local place of interest or organise a theatre trip. Sometimes we go by coach to places a bit further afield. In recent years we have visited a mining museum, cruised on the Lancaster Canal, toured a gin distillery and visited the BBC Studios in Media City.
Why not come along for up to three meetings without obligation and if you like what you see consider becoming a member.
Membership for 2023/24 is £35 per annum.
Preston Forum Probus Club is totally independent of any other organisation. It is non-religious, non-political and is run purely for the benefit of its members.
