The Probus Club of Driffield is a gentlemen's club set up in 1971 for retired and semi retired people of the town and its surrounding areas and we currently have around 30 members from all walks of life. We are one of about 2000 Probus Clubs in the British Isles.
We meet on the second Wednesday and fourth Thursday of each month. Our membership fee is only £12 a year.
We get together at 10.00am for 10.30am for a coffee morning at the Community Centre, Mill Street, Driffield. The meetings comprise club business and a general discussion on topical issues, avoiding politics and religion, and the emphasis throughout is on humour.
The Club arranges a number of excursions during the year, covering a variety of venues to satisfy most tastes, such as a day trip to RAF Scampton, Pocklington Gliding Club, cricket at Scarborough, The Spa, Bridlington, and the Great Yorkshire Brewery at Cropton and on these days we are often accompanied by our wives.
Twice a year we have lunches which benefit from invitations to our wives and guests. We also have regular visits to and from other Probus clubs in Yorkshire.
Please note that our normal schedule of meetings is interrupted by the Corona Virus situation, and we are now having twice-monthly Zoom meetings. We will return to normal as soon as we consider it safe to do so.
