How we Work

We hold meetings every two weeks at The Oatlands Club on Hookstone Road, when we have interesting speakers to talk with us on fascinating topics.  Details of our planned talks are listed here (opens in new tab) and meetings normally open at 2pm for a formal start at 2:30.

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!

Several times a year we have formal 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.  Most months, we also have informal lunchtime and evening meal sessions in local pubs or restaurants.

Please note that 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.

The Club’s annual subscription is £50, or pro-rata depending on when members join, which also includes full membership of the Oatlands Club. Prospective members are very welcome to visit as guests to find out more about us and, for more information about this or any other topics, please contact us via our contact form.
