“What do you get from Probus?” is a question often asked. The answer is simple — the opportunity to meet together for a social get-together. We are not involved in any fund-raising activities other than for our own needs.
The Honley Probus Club is a unique experience like all clubs. It encourages retired men to meet and keep in touch with the business and social world through a range of talks, sharing conversations and developing new friendships.
We invite our wives/partners to meals and trips during the year. Recent outings have included visits to Chester, Port Sunlight, Llandudno, Lincoln and the Assay office at Sheffield.
The Club has an established Bowls section and the members can bowl all the year round; indoors in the winter months and Crown Green during the summer months.
If you would like to join Honley Probus Club, (which stands for Retired Professional and Business Men), but in reality is open to any retired men in Honley and the local area who are interested in meeting up twice a month for a sociable chat, coffee and a range of good speakers, please do come along for a taster visit, or find out more by contacting us:
We meet every first and third Tuesday of each month at Honley Community Centre, Stoney Lane, Honley HD9 6DY from 10.30am until 12pm.
