Library display of our history

Fleet Library displayFleet Lions go public! A big thank you to Fleet and Crookham Local History Group for letting us use their display cabinets on the top floor of the Library. Particularly to Colin for making it all look very professional. A chance to find out a bit about the history of Fleet Lions, why we serve, what we do, artefacts, awards and how to get involved. Do take a look!

Message in a BottleMessage in a Bottle - important medical facts to help the emergency services help you

The Lions Message In a Bottle scheme is a simple idea designed to encourage people to keep their personal and medical details on a standard form and in a common location - the Fridge.  Whilst it is focused on the more vulnerable people in our community, anyone can have an accident at home, so this scheme can benefit anyone, including you. More details here. Contact miab@fleetlions.org.uk if you need one/some.

An MJF for Elvis

Elvis MJFsAt a recent luncheon, the Lions Club of Fleet surprised ‘Elvis’ by honoring him for his years of charity work in the local area. It was a total surprise for Dave Hurrell aka Dale Fontaine when the Lions presented him with a Melvin Jones Fellowship – the highest award within the Lions International movement. For decades, Dave has performed his Elvis Presley appreciation act at dozens of venues for the benefit of numerous local causes including our own Funfest. He’s raised thousands of pounds for charities in North Hampshire and Surrey.
