The Sudbury Ladies Probus Club was formed in November 2006 and is a social, fellowship association for retired or semi-retired like-minded ladies from around the Sudbury area.
Our members meet monthly in fellowship, have coffee mornings, speakers, alternate monthly luncheons and visit places of interest. Retirement can come too early for many people, who want to and can remain active.
People often ask what PROBUS stands for: it is simply an abbreviation for Pro(fessional) and Bus(iness), which is how these clubs started.
The ancient weaving town of Sudbury is situated on the River Stour. It is the birthplace of the painter Thomas Gainsborough, and it still retains much of the character and charm of a medieval market town.
The surrounding unspoilt Suffolk countryside is noted for its many villages of historic interest including Long Melford with its Elizabethan Halls and the picturesque village of Lavenham, famous for its timbered houses and perpendicular church.
Aims of the Sudbury Ladies Probus Club
To provide friendship and opportunity for development of our retirement in leisure time. We try to keep the structure simple with good ground rules and constitution for harmony in the club.
