Probus was formed in 1966, originally for retired professional and businessmen (hence the name). There are now over 1,000 clubs up and down the country; the Probus Club of Cirencester was formed in 1971.
The Club provides an opportunity to meet for a couple of hours on Fridays for a chat, a coffee and then to listen to an interesting talk. Coffee is available from 9.45 and the meetings start at 10.20, closing around 11.45. We meet at St Peter’s Court (at the end of St Peter’s Road) every Friday, but there is no requirement to attend every meeting.
We also have several social events throughout the year, ranging from monthly informal pub lunches for members (currently at Porters in Castle Street), to other events where partners are also welcome. These include the Spring and Christmas lunches, organised visits and informal trips.
The Club is very much a Club run by members for members, with the minimum of fuss and formality, the emphasis being on not taking ourselves too seriously.
