Serving the community of Fleet - and having a great time doing it!

And what a great time we had last Monday night when we had a birthday party at the Prince Arthur to celebrate the Lions Clubs International centennial. Many thanks to the Prince Arthur for hosting and also for all those great friends of ours who came along to join us and raise a glass to the Lions of the world! Look out for the article in the next Wetherspoon's magazine in a couple of months.

100 Wishes

logo-banner-centennial-celebrationThis year, Lions Clubs around the world are celebrating 100 years since Lions Clubs International came into being. As part of this celebration, we are seeking to respond to 100 wishes along the lines below which might not otherwise be met without help from the Lions. If you know of anyone we may be able to help in this way, please contact us with details.

Throughout the year we receive requests from groups, local organisations and individuals to help them either to achieve a worthwhile project or assist them in times of hardship or disability.

There are a number of levels in which the Club and members themselves meet these requests. It may be in the form of a cash donation to help a local charity or service organisation or with the purchase of some vital equipment. For example, a specialised bed for a Hospice or tenting kit for a local Scout Group.

At another level it may require a number of Lions Club members helping to move furniture or decorating the rooms of a disadvantaged local resident or simply taking an otherwise solitary and infirm person for a drive in the country.

Tell us what you would wish for. It can be for yourself or someone you know. How to contact us.


Roger Munday and Grahame Chenery

2016-17 President

At an informal evening on Wednesday the 29th of June at the Grange, President Roger Munday handed the chain of office to incoming President Grahame Chenery. Grahame thanked Roger for steering the club through another great year and told club members and partners that he is looking forward to providing the people of Fleet with even more service, compassion and fun when he officially takes office on the 1st of July.
