We're now out and about with Santa!

Santa on his sleighOur Christmas Float tours the streets of Fleet and Church Crookham each year during December and gives pleasure to hundreds of young and old alike. And the good news is that we're now out and about. As well as on your doorstep (this year if you live to the east of Reading Road), you may also see us at the Hart Shopping Centre and outside Morrisons with our friends from Hart Lions. There are a number of cheerful 'Friends of Fleet Lions' without whom, we would not be able to operate. Our thanks to them all. A big thank you too, for the generosity and good nature of our residents.

A list of roads to be visited by Fleet Lions Club and Hart Lions Club can be seen here

This year we had a lively morning in the storeroom at Morrisons where we packed 120 food parcels. They have all been delivered now and hopefully will help some local people have a bit better Christmas. A big thanks to all the staff at Morrisons for managing to avoid being tripped up by us! 





Christmas Concert

The Grey House schoool at a previous carol concert

We were all entertained by choirs from the Grey House School, Hartley Wintney, the Elvetham Community Choir, the Church on the Heath Gospel choir; as well as bubbles of fun with Caroline, Jenny and Sarah who are "Champagne at the Blitz". See some photos from the event

Oktoberfest 2015

What a lively and entertaining Oktoberfest we had on the 14th of October 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.
