Probus is a fellowship of retired Professional and Business men, dedicated to help one another in the enjoyment and problems of retirement. Our club of Babbacombe and St Marychurch in Torquay is very friendly and welcomes new members, particularly if you are newly retired, fresh to the area or perhaps recently bereaved. 


We meet every Thursday morning from September to May, with time for a coffee and a chat before a talk from one of the many excellent speakers that we are able to book.


We also hold a Christmas lunch, and we have arranged summer activities too - see the "Forthcoming Talks" page for more details.

We are now closed for the summer, but will re-start our meetings in September. However, we intend holding some social events during the summer months, so if you are interested in joining us, please get in touch so we can invite you along.

We meet in the Mary Alexander Lounge at St Matthias Church in Wellswood. This is a lovely, comfortable room, just by the bus stop on the Babbacombe Road and with car parking.
