Social Activities

Your Management Committee presents the following proposed Social Activities Program. It has been compiled from suggestions submitted by some members, past experience of enjoyable functions, and some new ideas. Although some proposed activities may vary as conditions change during the year and some new functions may be added, the proposed program gives members the opportunity to plan ahead.

This Social Activities Program was last updated on 12 April 2020





Traditionally, our monthly barbecues are an informal social get-together and an opportunity to celebrate our members' birthdays and anniversaries. This year, we are continuing to explore a range of different venues along the beautiful Central Coast. As well, we have an alternative venue for a "pub lunch" if a barbecue is cancelled due to inclement weather. Full details are given under Coming Social Events. 

Bookings to attend barbecues are essential and should be made at the General Meeting prior to each barbecue, or by telephoning our Catering Officer, John Hart

If there is any doubt about a barbecue being held because of inclement weather, an email will be sent to members who have recorded their email address by 9 am he day of the barbecue. Otherwise, members should telephone our Catering Officer, John Hart, or a Management Committee member.

In Winter months (June, July & August) the Barbecue is replaced by a "Winter Lunch", usually at a pub or club bistro.


Our 9-hole Golf Group is growing steadily and welcomes Probus members. The group tees off at 1.30pm on Wednesdays at Breakers Country Club, Terrigal, weather permitting. If you wish to join them, contact Jock Plimmer for more details.

Our 'Mexican Train' Group meets on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 2.30 pm at Avoca Beach Bowling & Recreation Club for a social game, although the emphasis is really on conversation and fun.
