Membership Information

The membership fee of Probus Crawley Forest is £252 per annum or £21 per month by Standing Order.  Our monthly meeting takes place on the 2nd Thursday of every month at the Hawth Theatre Restaurant at 11am and includes lunch after the guest speaker has finished.  Our members often arrive early and enjoy a coffee and a chat before the meeting starts. During the monthly meeting, we discuss our upcoming sporting/social activities, planned events, club finances, etc. and once the business is taken care of, we are entertained by a variety of guest speakers who will present talks on a variety of interesting subjects. Members will suggest and then organise a variety of activities to take part in, ranging from games of snooker and bowls, planned walks, special outings and visits to landmarks and places of interest. We’ve even been known to venture abroad! We have an Annual General Meeting each March.  Prestigious events to be enjoyed include the Club’s Christmas dinner and the popular Ladies’ summer lunch for members’ wives and partners. Once you join Probus, you will receive a Member’s Pack, which includes a copy of the Club Directory with details of all Club members, the Club’s Committee and Chairman.
