The Redway School
A couple of years ago the club donated a cycle trailer to a young Newport Pagnell boy who was suffering from Batten's disease, a debilitating and life limiting condition. This would allow him to enjoy some outdoor time with his family as he had outgrown his children's trailer. Recently he has become a student at The Redway School which specialises in dealing with children who have conditions which prevent them from attending mainstream schooling and one of their teachers has produced this lovely film which highlights life at Redway. Jensen appears at the end of the film (in red T shirt). We would ask you to watch this and consider the skills and devotion that the staff in this school bring to what must be a truly emotional and difficult calling.

Dickens of a Christmas
Olney's biggest event of the year took place on the 7th December and Lions were in the midst of things with our Craft Fayres and Bird of Prey exhibition. Have a look at our photo gallery here.
Top Quizzers - Nearly but not quite.
Each year, the Lions clubs in our District organise a quiz which commences at local level (Zone) with each Zone winner progressing onto the District Final, which will be taking place in February. Our club hosted the event at the Carlton House Club recently and our team finished a creditable 3rd out of 7 after 100 questions which were presented in 10 rounds. We were only a matter of a few points away from the eventual winners The Lions Club of Stony Stratford (Milton Keynes) who have won this competition on a number of occasions. Tina Byford, Russell Deville, Geoff O'brien and Karen Thorpe Morgan were our representatives and did us proud. Fun teams made up of Lions, friends and family members from throughout the district joined in the fun.
Our Olney 2015 Calendar
Our Olney Calendar is still available.
Our first venture into encouraging residents to contribute photographs for our 2015 Calendar has been a roaring success and we have seen sales this year to significantly top the previous 3 issues. Titled "Our Olney Calendar" to reflect the input from so many people this was again retailing at £5 and although most have gone, we still have a few left.
If you would like to order one of the last copies, please use the 'Contact Us' page and let us know what your requirements are. One of our members will then get in touch to arrange delivery and payment.
Newport Pagnell Calendar 2015
Our success with the Olney Calendar saw us deciding to produce one for Newport Pagnell. The NP Town Council provided us with a number of images past and present and others have been sourced from local people. Taking things cautiously, we have completely sold out and unfortunately have none left so sincere apologies for anyone who has failed to get one but will be increasing our supply for 2016.
