The Probus Club of Mendip is part of a world-wide organisation for retired PROfessional and/or BUSiness men (although a few clubs exist for women) which was formed as an offshoot of Rotary International in 1965. Retirement can come all too early for many people who want and are able to remain active, and Probus offers the maintenance of a social network with others who have similar interests and are open to learning more about a wide range of experiences of their fellow Probians.
Here in Cheddar we offer illustrated talks, interactive debate, and social events. We meed twice monthly on the first and third Mondays at 10am, with a lunch and skittles on any 5th Monday. Club outings and luncheon events (for which wives and partners are invited) are held throughout the year.
