Be in good company!

Be in good company!

Alresford Probus is a lively, eclectic mix of men, now partially or fully retired, from a wide range of professional and business backgrounds, who meet monthly at venues in Alresford or neighbouring areas, for discussions and presentations on subjects of topical interest, followed by lunch.

The Club is open to retired, or partially retired, men living in Alresford and its surrounding villages.  Currently, there are more than 40 members with an extensive range of business experience from accountants to engineers, journalist, judges and university professors.

Monthly lunches are lively gatherings of like-minded men, enjoying the good company of their peers and reminiscing about past exploits and business successes.

The Club meets on the third Monday of each month, currently at the Flower Pots, public house and restaurant in Cheriton where members enjoy a 45-minute talk/presentation, usually given by an outside speaker, but sometimes by a member with a keen interest in a particular subject.

 The pre-lunch talks and presentations cover a wide range of subjects and vary from general historical, military and social history, legal and justice dramas, vintage cars and new technical developments, to the latest manufacturing and business processes.

Alresford Probus was founded in 1984 by a group of local businessmen and retired military and naval officers, living in Alresford and the surrounding villages, led by Alex Hankin, a local JP and the proprietor of a substantial garage and motor sales and repair business in Alresford, and by Air Chief Marshal Sir Alfred Earle, a former Director of Intelligence at the Ministry of Defence.
