Listening to an interesting after lunch talk
Listening to an interesting after lunch talk

You are cordially invited to our meetings which are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month (except December when we meet on the 2nd Tuesday).

We meet at 12 noon for an informal chat and a drink before sitting down to lunch at 12.30pm.

The chef at Knowle Masonic Hall assumes all members will attend luncheons and prepares meals accordingly. It follows, therefore, that if for any reason you cannot attend he needs to be advised. To do that you should contact our Luncheon Secretary by the Friday before the meeting, otherwise a meal will be prepared unnecessarily and you will be expected to meet that cost.

Non-members (men*) considering joining the Club should contact us and we would be pleased to invite you as a guest to a Probus lunch.
