The Aylesbury John Hampden Probus Club

The Aylesbury John Hampden Probus Club, founded in 1987, is open those living in the  Aylesbury and Wendover areas who are looking for an opportunity to make new friends, brought together in a relaxed atmosphere over a regular lunch..  

Our luncheon meetings take place on the second Thursday of each month in the congenial surroundings of the Weston Turville Golf Club, and frequently feature a guest speaker.  Recent guest speakers have included Bill Giles OBE, BBC weatherman and meteorologist, local crime fiction author Dave Sivers and London Blue Badge Guide Colin Oakes.  Talks have covered everything from life in Singapore to the foundation of the National Lottery.

Many people whose workplace has been away from where they live, or have moved from another part of the country and have not had much social contact in their neighbourhood, will understand how important it is to develop relationships with like-minded people in retirement. A ready welcome awaits – and especially for those anxious to play an active part in our friendly local group.

We recognise that our members like to be accompanied occasionally by partners and guests who can be included in outings to chosen destinations of both cultural and technical interest and to lunches for special occasions.  Recently, we have been on a fascinating visit to the nearby Arla Dairy – the largest in Europe – and the Greatmoor Electricity-from-Waste site, a subject of considerable current interest.

What is Probus?

PROBUS is a local, national, and international association of retired people. Members come together in non-political, non-sectarian, non-profit, autonomous clubs which provide regular opportunities to meet others in similar circumstances, and   with similar levels of interest.  People value the ability to make new friends, and to maintain and expand their interests. The first association was founded in 1965 and there are now clubs throughout the country and abroad.
