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 and Prospective Members
It is a distinct honour and privilege to be elected as Chairman of Barton-on-Sea Probus Club.
With a focus on fellowship, the strength of Barton-on-Sea Probus Club is its people. With over 40 activities last year ranging from regular lunches to Asian dining nights, day trips to monthly walks and one-off events such as boules, a quiz, cricket trips and ten pin bowling this Club is very much one of great appeal to active retirees.
The inclusivity of the Club through its variety of events is a great strength and one which I plan to guard and develop throughout my chairmanship. I am supported in this quest by both an active and dedicated committee and a number of other members who arrange events on behalf of the Club.
Whilst for many of our activities we are joined by partners, there is also an informal ladies group linked to our Club which arranges a series of coffee mornings and lunches during the year.
We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of the world. We have the sea, we have the forest and some of us have the good fortune to be members of Barton-on-Sea Probus Club.The Club has a large and active membership but we are always looking for more members who share our vision and appetite to “do things”. If non-members looking at this website see a range of interesting appealing possibilities for them, why not go to the Contact Us page and take it from there. If you join us I am confident you will not be disappointed.
