Mike Biles was elected unanimously as President of King Alfred Probus Club at the recent Annual General Meeting held on the 19 April 2019. Our new President pledged to consolidate the work of the immediate past-President and move the Club forward in an orderly manner. Reflecting the all embracing vision he spoke of the strengths brought to the club by women and men.
I would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome all visitors to our website and especially to ladies who are visiting for the first time. I would like to encourage you to contact either me or the club Secretary to discuss potential membership or just download an application form and send it to us. We shall be pleased to invite you to one of our meetings.
King Alfred Probus Club was founded in 1988 and represents a vibrant community of retired and semi-retired professionals who meet once a month to share fellowship over a good meal and listen to an interesting talk from an invited speaker.
The Club also has an active programme of events, outings and tours organised by our Social Secretary and has links to other clubs and organisations. You are welcome to explore the information on this site including the detail of the meetings and speakers.
Technology has become an important part of our lives and the Club has embraced it to foster greater outreach to its members and to the community at large. We plan to extend this in the coming months with the introduction of a free email newsletter to promote our activities. You are welcome to subscribe to this free newsletter by following the link below.
Members will be invited to join the meeting two-days before the meeting is to take place. The invitation will take the form of a standard email sent to all Members. It will contain the Meeting ID and the Password as well as a URL Link to the meeting.
For those who wish to see what a virtual meeting looks like you are invited to sample or first exploratory meeting. There was no presentation at the meeting it was purely experimental but attracted 23 members.
We invite you to look through the pages of our website. If you are interested in learning more about our Club or coming to one of our meetings please contact us using the enquiry form here.
Or alternatively you may wish to apply directly to become a member of the Club.
Examples of trips and outings to local attractions are included in our programme each year. Some highlights are shown here.
Members have a very enjoyable time and in many instances a company will entertain us to lunch during the visit.
We take the safety of Probus members extremely seriously and as you know we have already taken the steps to cancel the President's Celebration Lunch this month. In addition to this and in line with the UK Government recommendations the Committee now confirms the following decisions.
With immediate effect the scheduled meetings for April, May, June, July and August are cancelled. The Committee will review the situation continuously and decide later if meetings should be resumed in September.
In the meantime updates will be issued on matters of interest to members in these difficult times. Keep safe and strictly follow all Government advice and recommendations.
