Established in 1984, The Barton-on-Sea PROBUS Club is for men who have retired or are about to retire from PROfessional or BUSiness occupations. We aim to promote friendship and good fellowship among our members by organising various social activities. Members are retired business people who embrace all facets of professional and business disciplines. Although the Club is for men there are coffee mornings, lunches and joint functions in which members’ wives or partners can participate. Barton-on-Sea in Hampshire is ideally located on the edge of the New Forest, about half-way between Lymington and Christchurch, and draws its members from within this area. New members are welcome. For more information please go to the Contact Us page.
I am privileged to be trusted with the Chairmanship of Barton-on-Sea Probus Club which is “probably the best Probus Club ……… anywhere”? The Club has gone from strength to strength, and it is my aim to make sure, with our enthusiastic and hard-working committee, that we continue to provide a range of meetings, outings and activities to give all our members, and their ladies, plenty of opportunities to share in the friendship, fellowship and fun which we all so enjoy.
We are pleased to be settled in our new ‘home base’ at the South Lawn Hotel in Milford-on-Sea. While we are no longer in Barton, it is worth the short ride for members to enjoy the excellent facilities catering for our talks, bar-time and dining at regular meetings. Our ladies join us for lunch three times a year, here or at other local establishments, and have their own programme of lunches and coffee mornings.
We enjoy monthly New Forest walks (ladies invited) and a (boys only!) Asian Dining Club meets most months. We have joint outings, ‘boys’ days out’ and many other events, some regular features on the programme such as our winter quiz, summer boules and coffee mornings, and others trips such as first class cricket matches, days out at the races, theatre trips etc.
We can keep up-to-date with all that’s going through our website and can now book our places at events online.
If you are thinking of joining a Probus Club we think you will find us a vibrant and friendly club, so please contact us through this website and come along for a visit – we think you’ll like what you see.
