  • Our Newport Pagnell & Olney Calendars - 2015

    Our 2015 Calendars were a fantastic success when we sold out of our Newport Pagnell version and very nearly did the same with the Olney one. Our Newport Pagnell Town Calendar used photos from the archives along with some donated to us whereas for Olney, we asked the residents to send us their favourite photo.  The response was almost overwhelming when over 200 images were received and the club members had a really difficult job, picking those which were passed to our page sponsors for their decision on which photo would adorn their page. But we did it, and between both issues, we added over £2000 to our charity account. We will be repeating the exercise for this years Calendar get details of hou you can become involved by Clicking here.


  • Dickens of a Christmas

    Another successful event in December despite rather changeable weather which saw our numbers coming into the halls slightly down on last year.  

    Want to join us in 2015?
    If you want onto our mailing list simply go to our contact page and leave us your contact details and some information of your craft. We will add you to our list and you will receive an application form once our 2015 event is booking.    

    Please note:  Only items which have been handcrafted by the stallholder or a known friend can be brought to the event - no wholesale/retailing is acceptable and certainly no pre made Vintage Goods (whether second hand or 'new').   


  • Newport Pagnell Events

    After a very successful trilogy of events in 2013 and a further 6 fairs during 2014 we are considering what we will be doing for 2015.   Come back to our site regularly for further information on how our plans are progressing or visit our "Contact us" page and let us have any enquiries you may have and one of our organising team will get back to you.


  • What we supported this month

    At each monthly meeting, any appeals for support which the club has received will be discussed and the appropriate steps taken according to the view of the majority of those present.   Have a look at How we Serve our community.


  • Motorama

    Motorama will be back in Olney Market Place and Old Cattle Market on Sunday 14th June 2014 and if you are a classic owner and would like to join us this year, download and complete the Application form which you will find at the foot of our Motorama page.  The event is becoming so popular that we are filling up earlier each year with little chance of latecomers finding a spot but by completing the form we will be able to keep you in the picture earlier enough to give you the best chance of getting into the event.     If you want further information which is not available from the site, simply  click here to visit our contact page and leave us details of your enquiry and someone will get back to you.


  • Friends of Lions

    Could you be a "Friend of Lions"?
    Many of the events we organise take more manhours to cover than our existing club has available via our members meaning that we can only carry these out with the support of our Friends group.   This group of people are simply folks who are willing to give a few hours when available to help the club.   They have no desire to become part of the Lions organisation however they are public spirited enough to offer their help when they are free to do so and we inevitably manage to obtain the numbers we need.
    If you are reading this and feel that you could, perhaps, respond to an appeal for a few hours in our time of need, please go to our   contact page and simply say "Add me to your Friends" - it couldn't be easier.
