Welcome to the website of

The Probus Club of Winchcombe

Probus clubs provide an opportunity for retired or semi-retired people to meet and socialise.


The name “Probus” is taken from the first syllables of “professional” and “business”, indicating the group of people at whom the clubs are primarily aimed. The expression is broadly interpreted, and most clubs will accept members regardless of their previous occupation.


There are Probus groups all over the world, though the largest numbers are in the UK, Canada and Australia. There is no governing body for the Probus movement, and although most clubs follow a similar pattern, each local club decides its own format and rules. Many are linked to local Rotary Clubs.

Probus clubs in Winchcombe

There are three Probus clubs in Winchcombe, two for men and one for women. The two men’s clubs are the Mercia Probus Club and the Probus Club of Winchcombe.

The Mercia Probus Club meets on alternate Wednesday mornings, and the Probus Club of Winchcombe on alternate Friday mornings.  The Winchcombe Ladies Probus Club meets on alternate Tuesday mornings.

The Probus Club Of Winchcombe

The Probus Club of Winchcombe is a relaxed and friendly group, with about 80 members. At our regular meetings we socialise over coffee, and hear a talk by an invited speaker. Our thirstier members usually regroup afterwards in a local pub.

Besides our fortnightly meetings, we organise occasional group lunches, outings to places of interest and other events. We have a walking group that meets monthly for a walk in the local area, and a cycling club for those who prefer a more energetic form of exercise
