Although Probus Clubs are now International each Club is autonomous and there is no national body as such.

The Probus Clubs are for retired and semi retired folk. From our Constitution, the objects are:

To provide and encourage social contacts and fellowship among the members on a non-sectarian and non political basis.

The Probus Club of Bungay meets at Mettingham Village Hall, (on the Bungay to Beccles Road B1062) on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 10.15 am. The meeting consists of coffee and chat, a small amount of business and a talk from a member or a visiting speaker. When there is a fifth Wednesday in the month there is an outing of some sort with the ladies.
