The making of the Combined Probus Club of Blackburn South.

The original Probus Club of Blackburn South was started as a men’s Probus Club in February 1989, and continued in this role for 24 years, when due to declining membership it was decided by the majority of members to change to a Combined Club.

At the AGM in 2016, the 1st Lady President was inducted by the out- going President. We now have ladies filling many of the roles the roles within the committee of management

The Combined Probus Club of Blackburn South is now a vibrant Probus club with 96 members and many of the existing members  participate  in the club meetings and the club’s various interest groups / Activities and outings.  Retired persons who may be interested in finding out what Probus is all about,  are always welcome to attend a club meeting or outing to see if they would also like to become a member.
