Welcome to Blackburn South Ladies Probus Club

Programme for 2021

After over 9 months of being Probus free, restrictions lifted just in time for our club to arrange a catchup morning tea at Blackburn Lake where we could finally meet again and give our Christmas greetings in person, from a safe distance of course!  There was a great sense of camaraderie and although far removed from our usual Christmas gathering with lunch and all the trimmings, it was most enjoyable.  Even our traditional lucky draw for poinsettias went ahead to everyone’s surprise and delight.  The outdoor gathering proved so popular, we met again in January for a shared ‘cuppa’. 

The Club is now swinging back into action, with meetings resuming in February and groups and activities commencing where possible.  We are now looking forward to High Tea at Beau Monde in Doncaster, where the friendship, fun and fellowship, possibly aided by a glass of champagne, will flow again.

Sadly, just as we were getting started, lockdowns have been put in place and our planning has been to no avail.  We are hoping to have a club gathering in November/December so that we can meet in person and wish each other an enjoyable Feative Season.  With increasing immunisation rates and easing restrictions we look forward with some optimism to 2022. 



What is Probus?

Probus is an association of active retirees who join together in clubs, the basic purpose of which is to provide regular opportunities for them to keep their minds active, expand their interests and to enjoy the fellowship of new friends.

Originating in the United Kingdom in 1965, Probus is now a world-wide movement across twenty three countries; it is a community service activity of Rotary Clubs.  New Zealand joined the Probus ranks in 1974, Australia in 1976 and our club was formed in 1989.

Probus is an Association for active members of the community and for those no longer working full time to join together for social interaction and activities, to expand interests and  enjoy the fellowship of new friends.
