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.
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.
The Probus Club of Winchcombe is a relaxed and friendly group, with about 70 members. Every second Friday morning we have a meeting at which we hear a talk by an invited speaker. In normal times, we socialise over coffee before the talk, and our thirstier members regroup afterwards in a local pub. During the Covid epidemic, however, our meetings have been held online.
Besides our regular meetings, we organise occasional group lunches, outings to places of interest and other events. We have a walking group that meets monthly, and there are cycle rides for those who prefer a more energetic form of exercise. (These too have had to be suspended during the epidemic)
If you would like know more about the Club, or enquire about joining, send an email to
