Our Probus Club
We meet on the first Thursday of each month at the Crown Manor Hotel in Lyndhurst High Street. Our club maintains around 50 members who range in age from mid 50s upwards. Members are drawn from a wide area and applications from potential new members living within the vicinity of the New Forest are always welcome, and should be addressed to the Hon Secretary.
The cost of membership is limited to a modest annual subscription, currently ₤25, plus meals taken.
The usual monthly meeting format is:
1015 Convene for coffee, tea and biscuits
1045 Formal club business chaired by the President
1110 Convenience and drinks break
1130 Guest speaker, followed by questions
1240 Convenience and drinks break
