Social Activities

Probus 83 Social Activities

Probus ’83 Guildford organise periodic visits for our members, wives and partners as well as other social activities. These visits and other activities are often arranged in cooperation with other local Probus clubs and we are often welcome to participate in their activities. In the past, these activities included a pub meal and skittles evening, a trip to Salisbury (Cathedral and Arundells), theatre trips and a four day trip to Paris.

During the warmer months we have golf and bowls matches, often against other Probus clubs.


We were the lead Probus Club in organising a visit to Fort Nelson, situated on Portsdown Hill, overlooking Portsmouth peninsula. The trip will be by coach, which departed Guildford mid-morning and returned about 5-5.30pm.

Fort Nelson is one of a chain of fortifications built to defend the vital base of Portsmouth. We had a bespoke talk and tour, with time left for both lunch and free time, during which we were able to explore the 19 acres of ramparts, outer fortifications, secret tunnels and ammunition bunkers.
