Rushden & District Probus Club

On Tuesday 12th February 1974 six Rotarians under the guidance of Geoff Morgan met together with 30 interested “retired gentlemen” to hear visiting speakers from Northampton Probus Club and Kettering Probus Club outlining the Aims and Objectives together with the activities undertaken by both clubs. The meeting concluded with a proposition being put to those present to form a local Probus Club and was carried unanimously.  The first meeting of the club was held on 6th March 1974 with 31 members attending.  

The club has continued to meet on the first Wednesday of each month with a membership of 46 at present. The maximum allowed is 50.

The Club is now run by a small committee of 8 Members.

As from January 2023 the meetings are held at The Stanwick Hotel at Stanwick.
