When we meet

We hold a Member’s Only Meeting every 2nd Tuesday in the month at 10.00 am to which guests may attend by invitation. At each Meeting we enjoy a selection of very fine guest speakers.

Unless invited by an existing Club Member, members of other Probus Clubs wishing to visit or transfer should contact the Secretary via the e-mail link.

Similarly, anyone not invited by an existing Member and wishing to visit or be considered for Membership should also follow the link and provide their full name and contact details 10 days prior to the date of the Meeting.


Activities form a major part in the life of our Club and these include lunches which are well supported by members and guests and held at different venues on a regular basis throughout the year.

Winter activities

During the winter months many members join the indoor bowling section which meets each week at Haslington, a local village. In addition to this we also visit the Shrewsbury Indoor Bowling Centre for special days out.

Activities March to October

From March until October the outdoor crown green bowling section meets twice weekly at the excellent Marriott House bowling green in the town with matches and competitions organised against other clubs including local Probus Clubs throughout the season. (Further details from our Secretary)

Day excursions and short Holiday Breaks

The day excursions which are very popular are organised through the year to many varied destinations and are well supported by members and guests. Visits include factories, museums and places of interest in the North and Midlands.
