About us

PROBUS is a local, national, and international association of retired people who come together in non-political, non-sectarian, non-profit, autonomous clubs which provide regular opportunities for members to meet others in similar circumstances, with similar levels of interest, make new friends, and maintain and expand their interests.

At the Kingsbridge Probus Club we hold monthly meetings at the Mill Club, Kingsbridge where we enjoy an interesting talk and have lunch and/or a drink.

Our spouses/partners are invited to join us in the Spring, Autumn and Christmas for a good lunch at a restaurant or gastro-pub in the area.

We also arrange trips to nearby attractions of interest to members such as local museums, canal trip, naval dockyard, met office, etc.

Try us for no charge on the third Tuesday of the month at 10.30 a.m. at the Mill Club, Western Backway, Kingsbridge TQ7 1QB.
