Welcome to the Probus Club of Horley and District, which was founded in 1987 for retired and semi-retired professionals and businessmen in the Horley and District area of Surrey for social and leisure purposes.

Retirement can come too early for many people who want and are able to remain active. Probus clubs are organisations for men (and women) who have retired from their profession or business and want to maintain a social network with others who have similar interests.

The first non-sectarian Probus club in the UK specifically for active retirees was formed in 1966 by the Rotary Club of Caterham. There are now approximately 1,700 clubs in Great Britain.




In normal times The Probus Club of Horley and District meets in The Caledonian Suite at The Copthorne Hotel, Copthorne on the second Tuesday of each month,

Coffee/tea, and biscuits are available from 10.20am prior to  a 10.45am start. After a brief business related period there is a chronical review of recent and future social events. Except for March (AGM) and December meetings there follows a talk delivered by an invited speaker. Talks cover a wide variety of topics, with some delivered by our own members. Following the talk there is a "comfort break" and the bar is opened. Most members take  a two course lunch, which is served at 1.00pm.

Lady partners and widows of past members are invited to attend the June, September and December meetings, which are held in the Worth and Norhgate Suite at the Copthorne Hotel.

The AGM is convened at the March meeting.


This friendly Probus Club is for like minded men, out of the world of Business and Professions, who would like to meet once a month for a relaxed meeting and lunch.
