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.
Meetings are held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month at a venue in Driffield. We get together at 10.00am for 10.30am for a coffee and the meetings comprise club business, general discussions and presentations on topical issues, avoiding politics and religion, with the emphasis throughout 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 and partners.
Twice a year we have lunches which benefit from invitations to our wives, partners and guests. We also have regular visits to and from other Probus clubs in Yorkshire.
Membership is only £12 a year.
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.
