Appleton Probus Club was founded in 1991 and has about 40 members. We presently have vacancies for new members. Please contact us for details.
The annual subscription is now £40 and is payable in April.
We meet twice a month at the Warrington Sports Club (Walton Lea Road, Higher Walton, Warrington, Cheshire, WA4 6SJ) for a lunch meeting (12 for 12:30) on the 2nd Wednesday and a coffee morning with a guest speaker at 10am on the 4th Wednesday. Click here for a map.
On the first Wednesday of each month our golfing members meet for a round of golf at Walton Hall.
On the third Wednesday of each month we have a modest two-hour walk in the countryside of northern Cheshire which is rounded off by a pub lunch with typically twenty or so walkers and their wives being joined by other members.
Highlights of our social year are a festive dinner dance in December, the President’s dinner in March and a ladies’ invitation lunch when the members are joined by their wives and the widows of past members. Also very popular is our Mixed Bowling Day at Great Budworth in August when our wives join us for a very enjoyable event which includes a picnic lunch.
Each year a variety of day trips and theatre visits are organised and we try to arrange one longer break during the year. Recent trips have included a visit to the Moselle Valley in Germany. In 2009 we visited Durham, staying at a 4-star hotel near the city centre and enjoyed day trips to Beamish and to the outstanding gardens at Alnwick Castle. 2010 saw us taking a weekend break at Bodelwyddan Castle in North Wales and in 2011 a group of us visited Warner’s Norton Grange resort on the Isle of Wight. In 2012 we went to Eastbourne, with trips to Brighton and Rye. 2013 saw us at the Warner’s resort in Cricket St Thomas in picturesque Somerset with days out to Weymouth and Sidmouth. In 2015 we flew to Jersey, taking in a coach tour of the island and exploring the war tunnels. Trips in 2017 included a week in lovely Llandrindod Wells as well as a day trip to the JCB factory in Staffordshire. Scheduled for 2019 is a 5-day trip to Cromer in Norfolk.
There are several Probus clubs in the Warrington area and with good links between them, members of these clubs share in each other’s regular activities as well as quiz nights, bowls and golf competitions. There is a thriving programme for members to take part in and after our recent move to the present venue with its ample accommodation there is no longer a waiting list and our membership is continuing to grow.
