Our Probus Club
We meet on the first Thursday of each month at the Crown Manor House Hotel in Lyndhurst High Street. Our club maintains between 40 to 50 members, ranging in age from 50s to 90s. Members are drawn from the vicinity of the New Forest and applications from potential new members are always welcome, 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:
1030 Convene for coffee, tea and biscuits
1100 Club business chaired by the President
1130 Guest speaker, followed by questions
1240 Convenience and drinks break
1300 Convivial 2 course lunch
Our partners join us for the May and September meetings, for a Summer Tea Party in June, and for a Christmas dinner in December. For those who wish to participate we also arrange outings, walks, snooker, horse racing and golf.
