'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 Club was founded in 1995, currently 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 convivial lunch meetings at the Old Tollgate Hotel at Bramber near Steyning where we conduct some business and enjoy presentations from speakers.
Most months we organise club country walks in West Sussex after which a pub lunch is most welcome.
Throughout the year we hold events and occasional day excursions of interest to the club's membership and families, these include theatre trips, visits, ten-pin bowling etc.
The Club has an active golfing group with an annual programme of up 6 events held around West Sussex.
From time to time trips away for a few days are organised to places of interest in the UK and in mainland Europe.
