Leigh-on-Sea Probus Club

The Leigh-on-Sea Probus Club was founded in 1979 as a lunch club for men. It meets for lunch and a talk, on the third Tuesday of every month at Saxon Hall near the airport. Usually ladies are invited to join us in January and August. Every month there is a talk from a guest speaker, except in March when the AGM is held.

As well as from Leigh-on-Sea there are now members who live in nearby locations such as Westcliff-on-Sea, Hadleigh, Benfleet, Shoeburyness, Rayleigh and elsewhere between the rivers Thames and Crouch, in the City of Southend-on-Sea, the Borough of Castle Point and the District of Rochford. 

The postal address of Saxon Hall is Aviation Way, Southend-on-Sea, SS2 6UN.

A Probus club is a "local association of retired and semi-retired professional and business people, and others who have had some measure of responsibility in any field of worthy endeavour, who are of character and respected in their communities".

If you would like to learn more about the club please contact the Honorary Secretary Terry Bond, telephone 01702 623570 or email enquiries@leighonseaprobusclub.uk
