PROBUS CLUB OF RICHMOND, NORTH YORKSHIRE
Founded in 1981 to provide facilities for retired and semi-retired professional and business men to meet in fellowship and to maintain social contacts.
Probus Club of Richmond meet at 10.15am on the second and fourth Wednesday each month in an informal and cordial atmosphere at the Richmondshire Cricket Club, Hurgill Road, Richmond. After a short Club business meeting, a high standard of guest speakers provide talks on a wide variety of subjects.
Between thirty and forty members attend the meetings and afterwards enjoy a drink.
The sixty plus members range from late fifties to early nineties, and enjoy the opportunity to meet friends of similar age.
A Christmas lunch, and a Spring lunch to which wives and other non-members are invited, are held in December and March.
Additional outside visits to places of special interest are arranged and when possible these are open to family, non-members and friends.
At the Annual General Meeting in November, the officials are elected, the annual membership subscription (presently £30) is set and all aspects of the organisation of the Club are discussed.
The Committee, comprising all the officials, holds periodic management meetings to ensure the smooth running of the Club.
