Welcome to the Probus Club of East Grinstead and District. The town is located at the extreme eastern edge of West Sussex, close to both the Weald of Kent and Ashdown Forest.
The Queen Victoria Hospital is world famous for its pioneering burns and plastic surgery. Recently a statue was unveiled of WW2 surgeon Sir Archibald McIndoe to commemorate his surgery on severely burned aircrew, and formation of the Guinea Pig Club.
The town is the northern terminus of the famous Bluebell Railway, bringing new trade to local shops and businesses.
Close to Gatwick Airport and the industrial centre of Crawley, the town has expanded over recent years with many new housing developments. The historic High Street includes many medieval buildings as well as Sackville College, its claim to fame being the home of John Mason Neale where he wrote the carol Good King Wenceslas.
The Probus Club is particularly vibrant with close on 70 members. The monthly meetings are always well attended and many outings and holidays complement the traditional speaker programme. New members are ever welcome and if you think this is for you, just follow the link on Membership. The Club will be pleased to have you as part of its community.
