2nd April 2021: Coronavirus Update
The Committee is delighted to announce that with, God willing, a considerable easing of the Coronavirus constraints coming into sight, we are tentatively starting to resume normal activities. The unofficial “ERDG” walks have already restarted under “Rule of 6” constraints and it is hoped to restart regular official monthly walks from the end of April. More details are on the walks page here (opens in new tab).
The resumption of physical meetings will probably have to wait until the Summer at the earliest, but we will keep members posted on the plans. Meanwhile, the successful Zoom talks will continue on the usual 2-a-month cycle, and planned talks are listed here (opens in new tab).
If you are retired or semi-retired and wish to meet like-minded professional and business men, then our Club could provide you with an excellent opportunity to talk, walk and share social occasions with friends.
In normal times, we hold meetings every two weeks at the Oatlands Mount Club on Hookstone Road, when we have interesting speakers to talk with us on fascinating topics.
2018 was a special year in the Club’s history, since it marked the 25th anniversary of our very first meeting, on 13th March 1993. We recognised this at our AGM on 21st March when we were honoured by the presence of the Deputy Mayor of Harrogate, Councillor Christine Willoughby, together with representatives of the other local, but more junior, Probus clubs. Members enjoyed a celebratory buffet lunch before the formal business of the AGM
We have two active walking groups, one of a slightly more demanding nature than the other, when members and guests take a 4 to 6 mile walk every month in our lovely local countryside. This always ends at an attractive pub, where we are joined by other members who like to share a meal but can’t manage the walk!
Four or five times a year we have social events– usually a coach trip to somewhere interesting for the whole day, but maybe to attend a Probus Christmas Carol Concert or to share a celebration meal.
We are a male membership club and general meetings are normally for male members and guests – but spouses, partners and guests are welcome to most other social activities.
Do contact us via the button below, and arrange to come as a guest to one of our meetings.
