Social Programmes

Our social programmes usually include our wives/partners. The following list shows what is planned for the current Probus year.

At the moment outside trips are still at the planning stage. They usually try to take place on the fourth Thursdays of most months. Until such time as trips are firmed up it is anticipated that we shall continue with having a social drink/lunch at the Queen’s College Arms at Pamber End on the Aldermaston Road at 12.00 noon on the fourth Thursdays of a month. Notice of outside trips will be given as soon as possible and this site will be amended with their basic details.

This part of the web site will be updated accordingly.
