The Probus Club of Ascot
In simple terms Probus is an organisation for retired business and professional men (or those approaching retirement) to meet on a regular basis and socialise.
The Probus Club of Ascot has been in existence since 1987 and currently has around 63 members. Membership is limited to 80 'ordinary' members and thus at the time of writing we have some vacancies. The annual membership fee is currently £20 with a joining fee of £15.
We meet on the fourth Monday of each month at Windlesham Golf Club 12.00 for 12.45pm luncheon. There is a cash bar.
Apart from the December Christmas Luncheon, to which wives or partners are invited and the Club's AGM meeting in March, each meeting has a speaker who gives a presentation. Subjects vary enormously.
Attendance at each luncheon is usually between 40 and 50 members and the occasional guest.
One major social occasion is the Summer Luncheon Party held in an outdoor venue in Ascot. We also try to organise one or two visits each year to other places of general interest.
