|The Probus Club of Wrington Vale
Where are we?
Our Club is situated in Wrington Vale about 12 miles south of Bristol. Most of our members are from the surrounding villages but some are from further afield in Weston super Mare and Bristol. Our monthly meetings are held at the Mendip Spring Golf Club just outside Congresbury with the exception of April and December when we hold a dinner and lunch respectively with our wives and partners at a different location.
What is required of members?
In many respects, very little. Most members attend the monthly lunch and speaker events where they can plus two formal events already mentioned. The amount of time you invest in the Club is up to each member but those able to help with the running of the Club do so in one way or another during their membership.
What does the Club do?
The main activity is the monthly lunch with a variety of speakers on a range of subjects. We have had some really interesting speakers and have a varied list of speakers booked over the next year or so. Several times a year there are social events organised such as skittles with our wives invited, shooting and archery and organised walks. In addition, we have recently visited Portsmouth Naval Dockyard, Bath Races, West Somerset Railway and the Bloodhound Project. The plan is to have three such events each year.
What does it cost?
The annual membership fee is £15 with the cost of a two-course lunch plus coffee being £15 including a raffle contribution. The cost of visits and social events are priced individually.
How can I find out more?
Get in touch with the Club by email and we will respond, or phone me on the number shown below. If interested, you can attend a couple of lunches as a guest to see if you like what we do and meet some of our members before applying to join.
I look forward to hearing from you.
