'Probus' is a local network of clubs for retired or partially retired professional & business people. The world-wide movement began in England in the mid 1960s and there are now around 2000 clubs throughout the UK
The Chanctonbury Probus Club members mostly live in the Storrington/West Chiltington/Pulborough areas of West Sussex close to the South Downs Chanctonbury Ring, a landmark of beautiful trees on Chanctonbury Hill north of Worthing.
Chanctonbury Probus has over 40 members and is a relaxed social club that is non-political and non-sectarian.
Usually on the first Thursday of the month we hold lunch meetings at the Old Tollgate Hotel at Bramber near Steyning where we conduct some business & enjoy presentations from speakers.
Most months we organise a club country walk in West Sussex after which a pub lunch is most welcome.
Throughout the year we arrange occasional day excursions of interest to the club's membership, these include theatre trips, and sports activities including golf & ten-pin bowling.
From time to time trips away for a few days are organised to places of interest in the UK and in mainland Europe.
