Probus Club of Charlbury

The PROBUS Club of Charlbury and District

PROBUS is an informal and relaxed club for semi-retired and retired gentlemen from all backgrounds and walks of life. We aim to provide a variety of activities, visits and social events to entertain and amuse our members and their guests whether ladies or gentlemen. PROBUS clubs can be found all over the UK and abroad and provide a warm welcome to fellow PROBUS members.

During the lockdown we have aimed to provide some online talks and meetings, and as circumstances change we will open up our activities once again but putting the safety of members first.

Later in the year we hope to resume our monthly lunches at Witney Lakes Resort. We aim to offer a Zoom link so that members who are not able to attend can still hear the talk by our invited speakers. In the past we have heard speakers on a wide variety of topics including Shipbroking, Homelessness, the Deepwater Horizon oilrig accident, travels in South America, Russian History and Culture, Policing in the 1970's, North Korea, Decorative glass, and the City Livery Companies. Lunches are quite informal and dress is Smart Casual.

We also plan to resume our visits for 2022. In previous years we have visited Kelmscott Manor, Stratford-upon-von, the Black Country living Museum in Dudley and the Watermill Theatre near Newbury and the Symphony Hall in Birmingham.

Other events will include an informal walking group, joint ventures such as one we held with the Charlbury Ladies Luncheon Club at the Charlbury Bowls Club, and some very successful Christmas Events

Applying for Membership

The cost of membership is currently £15 per annum, with a charge of £20.00 for each lunch attended. The lunches are two courses, a main and a dessert, followed by tea/coffee and chocolate mints. The speaker presentation follows the lunch.
