Committee | Programme

Welcome to the Romsey Abbey PROBUS web-page.
We have been established for over twenty five years and our membership is open to all professional and businessmen who are fully or partly retired from their normal profession or business. Our membership is around 40.

The club's objective is to promote and encourage a spirit of friendship by holding regular meetings at which there is a short formal meeting followed by a buffet lunch after which there is a talk by an invited speaker. The time taken is usually about two hours. We also hold social events at which our partners are welcome.

The club's meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at the Romsey Branch of the Royal British Legion, 11.30 for 12noon, with a buffet lunch provided. You will be welcomed as a guest for three meetings at which point you can decide to join our club. Please contact our Secretary for details.
