Welcome to The Lentune Probus Club

Lentune Probus Club was formed in September 1978, to provide retired Professionals and Businessmen in Lymington and the New Forest area, with opportunities to meet and enjoy the company of like-minded people. 

We also have an active Lentune Probus Ladies Club for our wives, partners, widows and friends.

Members meet in the Pavilion at South Lawn Hotel, Milford on Sea, on the second Monday of each month (except August) for a convivial coffee, an interesting talk on a variety of topics, followed by a drink at the bar and lunch. 

The Lentune Probus Ladies meet on the first Wednesday of each month (except August), also at South Lawn, when they too enjoy coffee on arrival from 10.00am, followed by a talk and lunch. 

In addition to these monthly meetings, we organise a varied programme of enjoyable, attractively priced social events, throughout the year, attended by the members of both clubs. These typically include guided walks, boules and skittles competitions, quizzes, lunches, day trips, an annual dinner with entertainment, and club holidays, including mini-cruises.

Our Club is autonomous, non-political, non-sectarian, non-profit making and inclusive. It is run by members for members, and our meetings are light-hearted and good-humoured.

Annual membership costs £37.50 (Ladies £35.00) plus the cost of attending meetings and participating in social events. 

We always welcome new members who want to meet and enjoy the company of active, like-minded people, living life in retirement to the full. Please contact us if you are interested in joining our Club or would like further information.
