Retford Mens Probus Club is a local association of retired men who join together in what has grown into a non political, non sectarian International Club. The club provides a regular opportunity for like minded folk to make new friends and expand their interests.
The name PROBUS is a derivation of Professional and Business. If you belong to the dwindling minority who studied latin at school, you may remember that Probus also means of good standard, well functioning. That may well be something of a coincidence yet we believe our group meets those criteria as well.
Probus is renowned for its informality, club meetings are a rendezvous for morning coffee and a get together. Time for sociability, followed normally by a talk from an invited speaker on a topic of interest to members. Our purpose is to provide regular opportunities to keep minds active and meet friends and make new friends.
Probus can help when a person retires from vocation, providing opportunities for active retirees to meet with other individuals keeping minds and bodies active, expanding interests on a social level and enjoying fellowship.
We meet fortnightly on a Friday morning at 10.00 am at the Ordsall Community Centre. Our programme of meetings is available on this website. If you are 60 years old or so and wish to do more with your spare time, then, get in touch with us via the website contact form. Alternatively just turn up at a meeting take a look at us. All new members are most welcome.
