Our Probus Club

We meet on the first Thursday of each month at the Crown Manor Hotel in Lyndhurst High Street.  Our club maintains around 50 members who range in age from mid 50s upwards.  Members are drawn from a wide area and applications from potential new members living within the vicinity of the New Forest are always welcome, and should be addressed to the Hon Secretary.

The cost of membership is limited to a modest annual subscription, currently ₤25, plus meals taken.

The usual monthly meeting format is:

1015 Convene for coffee, tea and biscuits

1045 Formal club business chaired by the President

1110 Convenience and drinks break

1130 Guest speaker, followed by questions

1240 Convenience and drinks break

1300 Convivial 2 course lunch

c.1430 Dispersal

Our ladies join us for the May meeting and for a Christmas dinner at the same venue in December.  For those who wish to participate we also arrange outings, walks, snooker, and golf.
