The Probus movement has its origins in the Rotary organisation and was formed over 50 years ago. It now has thousands of branches worldwide.

In 1965 Fred Carnhill had the idea of forming a club for retired and semi-retired professionals, business people, and anyone who had some measure of responsibility in any field, with the primary objective of promoting fellowship through an extension of their interests. Fred approached Rotary in Welwyn Garden City for help and the rest is history.

All Probus organisations are autonomous and there is no central organisation, apart from the production of a quarterly magazine.

Seahouses Probus Club meets at 10am on the first Wednesday of every month, at the Olde Ship Inn, to listen to guest speakers and socialise. There are also trips away, interaction with other clubs and an annual dinner.

The 25th anniversary will be celebrated later in the year with a champagne event prior to the annual lunch.
