The Louth II Probus Club has reported a spurt in numbers.

Louth Probus II is flying high with an influx of members.

Having been founded 20 years ago, the club is proud to be one of the first to offer memberships to both men and women – well before the Equality Act of 2010 prompted others to include women.

The Probus movement was first started in the 1960s – at the instigation of the Rotary Club – for retired men who wanted to continue to meet.

Since then, it has gone from strength to strength, with more than 2,000 clubs in Britain alone.

The Louth branch is welcoming and friendly and is open to all retired business and professional men and women, enabling them to mix and make new friends over a good meal.

The club meets for lunch at Kenwick Park Hotel on the first Tuesday of every month, with a speaker invited every other month.

There is a small joining fee and the set lunch menu can be altered to suit people with dietary requirements.

Visits to other clubs and events are sometimes arranged, depending on the time of year and demand.

If you are interested in joining, call Paul on 01507 313601.
