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.
Dear Fellow Members
Hello everyone and welcome to our new web site. A lot of hard work has gone into the site to make it easier to navigate and we have now added an opportunity to sign up for events on-line as well as at the meetings..
As I am half way through my year as Chaiman I thought I would keep you up to date with past and present activities. In February our Quiz afternoon at South Lawns went very well organised by Bill Payne and then on to a very successful week at Warners IOW with our wives and friends making a very enjoyable break.
The committee have been busy organising some special events for the rest of the year e.g.
A Boys’ day out in April to the Guards’ Museum at Windsor,
A day out to the Hampshire Cricket ground in May organised by Roy Duxbury and also
A joint day out to the Swannery Abbotsbury Dorset.
All details of our future programmes are available on this website so keep looking on a regular basis and use the new sign up sheet for future events from the 1st April.
For those prospective new members that are reading this for the first time, I know you will find us to be a very friendly club. Why not be a guest at one of our monthly lunches to get to know us better. See the contact page for an invite.
If you are one of our 80 members reading this, can I wish you and your beautiful ladies health and happiness in 2017
Chairman Barton on Sea Probus
