The Probus Club of St Heliers provides social, recreational, and educational activities for retired or semi-retired professional and business men in the eastern suburbs of Auckland, New Zealand.  Formed in 1981, it now has about 60 members.

Like the St Heliers Ladies Probus Club, our club is a member of the umbrella organisation Probus South Pacific Limited, and club members can access the benefits that it offers.

We meet at 10 am on the fourth Friday of each month at the St Heliers Bowling Club in Goldie Street, St Heliers. Visitors and prospective members are cordially welcomed to these meetings, as are the wives and partners of members.

Several special interest groups, such as the walking group, the golfing group and the investment group, provide further opportunities to interact with like-minded members.  Social functions also are organised at various times throughout the year.

A monthly newsletter keeps members up to date on recent and upcoming events, and on other items of interest.  You can access some recent newsletters on the Newsletters page of this web site.

The club’s activities and business affairs are coordinated by an elected management committee that routinely meets on the second Friday of each month.  Currently it is comprised of the following members:
