Mens Group


Barton Probus Club

Established in 1984, The Barton-on-Sea PROBUS Club is for men who have retired or are about to retire from PROfessional or BUSiness occupations. We aim to promote friendship and good fellowship among our members by organising various social activities. Members are retired business people who embrace all facets of professional and business disciplines. Although the Club is for men there are coffee mornings, lunches and joint functions in which members’ wives or partners can participate. Barton-on-Sea in Hampshire is ideally located on the edge of the New Forest, about half-way between Lymington and Christchurch, and draws its members from within this area. New members are welcome.
