Oktoberfest, Saturday 14 October 2017

Oktoberfest 2015What a lively and entertaining Oktoberfest we had last Saturday at the Zebon Copse Community Centre. The Oompah band BETTESTEINER FOOTSTOMPERS had us all stomping away and the bratwursts were amazing. Some pretty good bier too! And we raised a tidy sum to help local good causes, helped by some amazing prizes donated to our raffle..



Fleet Firework Fiesta, Saturday 4th November 2017

fireworksA great evening for all the family at Calthorpe Park, Reading Road North GU51 4HR (not the school). This is the biggest event we stage in the year and you seem to love it. Great food and gluhwein too so bring your friends for your fireworks party!. We've spent £5000 on them.

Nearly 7000 of you came last year and it'd be great to see you all again!

Tickets will again be priced at £6 per Adult and £3 per Child (5 - 16 years)

Under 5's Go Free!

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.
