Unfortunately, due to a problem with the boiler at the Community Centre, we have had to postpone the Monday Group lunch on 7 January 2019.  If the boiler can be repaired quickly the lunch will now be held on Thursday, 10 January 2019.  Further information will follow.

Community Centre Closure

By |2019-01-06T10:37:58+00:00December 7th, 2018|Categories: News Bulletin|

As you have probably heard/read, Sevenoaks Town Council has announced plans for the closure and refurbishment of the Community Centre and they are not taking any bookings after March 2019.  We are, therefore, having to find a new venue for our lunches, starting in April 2019.

Your Committee has looked at over a dozen alternative locations, without finding any which match our current arrangements.  No local venue was able to offer us both Mondays and Thursdays, while meeting our other requirements.

The best option that we have found is Kippington Church Hall.  This would permit us to have lunches provided by our current caterer, our own bar & free but more limited parking.  Unfortunately no Thursdays are available with only the first and last Mondays of the month being regularly available.

This will mean an upheaval for everybody, but more especially Thursday lunch members.  We very much hope that you will be able to come to Kippington.   Monday members would continue to come on the first Monday of the month, while Thursday members would come on the last Monday of the month.  “Crossing the floor” would continue.   When the Community Centre reopens, members will be consulted on whether to return or not.

Important Notice from the Lunch Secretaries

By |2018-01-13T17:38:28+00:00January 13th, 2018|Categories: News updates|

Members are reminded that the cost of Probus lunches is a direct cash payment between members and the caterers and that these transactions are not part of the formal Probus accounts. Any shortfall on the day of the lunch as a consequence of the non-attendance of any booked members has to be paid for by your Lunch Secretary from his own pocket. Consequently, reimbursement cheques must be made payable to your Lunch Secretary by name, and not to Probus.

Applications for Membership

By |2018-04-18T17:13:19+00:00January 13th, 2018|Categories: Membership|

Application forms and copies of a leaflet for prospective members are available from either of the Lunch Secretaries (Allan de Turberville or Derek Campbell), from the Membership Secretary or they may be downloaded here (pdf file).
