Participation in any events organised by the club, which are open to all members, is entirely optional. These include:
Visits to a wide variety of destinations, including places of historic interest, theatres, stately homes and gardens are arranged throughout the year to which wives, partners and guests are invited.
We hold an annual golf day when members play for our Drysdale Cup. Additionally golf matches are organised between other Probus Clubs and golfers of all abilities are most welcome.
Every month, between about 12 to 20 members have a walk of around 5 miles on easy terrain, taking a circular route that starts and finishes at a pub within a short car journey from Harpenden. Lunch is taken on the return.
We have an annual holiday of 4 or 5 days duration for members with wives and partners. These have been both in the UK and Europe
We run an annual indoor bowls knock out competition. Instruction and practice sessions are provided for non-bowlers.
Our monthly lunch meetings are held in Harpenden, usually on the second Thursday of each month, and are normally followed by an entertaining talk by a guest speaker. We meet at 12noon for 12.30pm and conclude around 3pm. The July meeting does not have a speaker as it is the AGM nor do March and December which are the Chairman’s Dinner and Christmas Lunch respectively, to which wives and partners are invited.
