The Spennymoor Probus Club currently comprises around 30 members. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday mornings at
Tudhoe Cricket Club,
St Charles Road,
Spennymoor DL16 6JY.
A talk is given at most meetings, see the programme of events below.
The premises are open from 10am for coffee (and biscuits!) and a chat and business, followed by the speaker at 10:15am. Members will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker. The meeting will close by 1200pm.
We organise a Christmas Lunch for members and their partners.
New members are very welcome. Guests/visitors are welcome to attend at any meeting and we would particularly like to see Probus members who might be visiting our area.
Either contact us on our email or just turn up at a meeting and make yourself known one of our members .
