Watch this short video from the Lions Clubs in Canada about how they are involved in providing assistance dogs for the blind and those with medical and physical conditions. Thanks to these wonderful animals, life becomes a little easier.
Our Olney 2015 Calendar
Our Olney Calendar is now available.
Created following a competition amongst residents and visitors who submitted photos, we were deluged with over 200 images of Olney and the surrounding area. Following a very difficult selection process which involved Lions and our sponsors, we finally managed to select 14 for the publication. Titled "Our Olney Calendar" to reflect the input from so many people this will again retail at £5 and be supplied shrink wrapped with a postal envelope if required.
Have a look at the final selection that made it to print by clicking here

Newport Pagnell Calendar 2015
Our success with the Olney Calendar saw us deciding to produce one for Newport Pagnell. The NP Town Council have provided us with a number of images past and present and others have been sourced from local people so if you are thinking of purchasing a calendar for friends and family we may just have the ideal present for you.
Both Calendars are £5 which includes a postal envelope and these are available NOW! A free COD delivery service is available for anyone living within reasonable distance from either town with any postal charges being added at cost.
Payment can be made via Paypal (no need to have a Paypal account) via a debit/credit card.
Autumn Artisan Food & Drink Fair
Our Fourth event in 2014 at the United Reformed Church Hall in Newport Pagnell took place on 18th October when a number of stalls carrying a wide range of delectable products suitable for the entire family at our Autumn Artisan Food and Drink Fair.
The fantastic cakes, meats, drinks are all produced by the stallholders who were in attendance and many of our visitors enjoyed speaking to those who were actually responsible for the goods on display. More than one visitor was heard to say that they would prefer 'real' food to that mass produced junk (one of the more printable descriptions used) which you see in supermarkets.
Keep an eye on the website for some of our future events at Newport Pagnell - entrance is entirely free so go along, you know it makes sense.
Lions Shoot at Kettering
A number of our members joined Lions Clubs from Northampton, Wellingborough and Kettering at the Kettering Lions Club annual Clay Pigeon shoot which this year was raising funds for the Children's Air Ambulance. It was a great day (as normal) and although a fair number of clays managed to get to earth in one piece, a few did receive some damage in the process - the clay rabbit, however managed to go to ground with amazing frequency. (Bit more difficult shooting down towards the ground)
Fortunately the inclusive BBQ made up for any disappointment we may have had in not getting a perfect score - roll on next year.
