Are you looking for an enriching and fulfilling experience during your retirement? We invite you to join our Probus (“PROfessional and BUSiness”) group—a vibrant community of retired professionals who come together to engage in social activities, pursue interests, and form lasting friendships.We belong to the world-wide network of Probus clubs that provide opportunities for retired and semi-retired people to talk, walk and share social occasions with like-minded friends.  For more information about the benefits of Probus, click here (opens in a new tab).

In our case, we are a male-only club, and hold meetings every two weeks at The Oatlands Club on Hookstone Road, Harrogate, when we have interesting speakers to talk with us on fascinating topics.  Details of our planned talks are listed here (opens in new tab).

We have two active walking groups that explore our lovely North Yorkshire countryside. One group has regular walks of, typically, 4-4.5 miles on the 4th Wednesday of every month, and one that undertakes slightly more demanding walks of 5-6 miles on an “as and when” basis. Details of our planned walks are here (opens in a new tab), and you can see that they always end at an attractive pub, where we are joined by other members who like to share a meal but can’t necessarily manage the walk!

We also have formal social events, such as more formal lunches and we also have regular informal lunchtime and evening meal sessions in local pubs or restaurants.  A calendar of these and other important future events is here (opens in new tab)
