New members sought by Horsham club as social events start to return
A retirement club in Horsham has launched a rare recruitment drive for new members following months of isolation.
The Probus Club of Horsham Forest will restart face-to-face monthly meetings next month with a speaker and other social activities as coronavirus restrictions continue to ease.
Deryck Wright, club president said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming new members to our friendly club.
“We’re particularly interested to hear from people who have recently entered retirement, with time and energy to contribute positively to the future life of the club.
“There is usually a waiting list to become a member, so we expect the current vacancies to go quickly and urge people to get in touch early to avoid disappointment.”
Meetings have been taking place online, but members are ready to start socialising again and enjoying regular events including pub walks, skittles, bridge, and coffee mornings.
Day trips will also resume with stately home and garden visits, theatre trips and river boat cruises likely to feature as in the past; and there is usually a short break holiday.
Although this is a men’s club, partners are invited to all social activities. Welfare is a high priority for the club, and it endeavour to support members and their partners and widows at times of need.
