NEWS
  • Our Newport Pagnell & Olney Calendars - 2015

    What a response we had to our appeal for photos for Our Olney Calendar 2015.   Over 200 images were sent to us and the club members had a really difficult job, picking those which were submitted to our page sponsors for their decision on which photo would adorn their page. Have a look at ALL the photos received by clicking HERE or click on THIS LINK if you want to see the finished product.  We managed to raise over £2k between our Olney and Newport Pagnell calendars and we would like to thank everyone who purchased one or more.  Your support is really appreciated not only by us but more so by those we help.


  • 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.

Mission Impossible?  Not for Lions

This months video follows undercover agent Ethan Hunt as he searches for evidence to establish if the claim by Lions Clubs International that they are "Changing the World with their activities" is accurate.

Watch, digest and perhaps change your own view on life and ask yourself, would you be able to help out?  

Could you find it possible to become involved in the Largest Service Organisation in the World?

If not as a member, why not think about giving us some time as and when your commitments allow.   For full details, get in touch via our Contact Us page.   Give us your contact information and someone will be in touch.

Do you have a photo you could contribute to our competition?   If you have, it may well find itself in the finished product.   Find out how you do it here.


Great Easter Egg Raffle

In true contradiction of the laws of evolution The Lions have laid their eggs!   Not, of course eggs that enable the species to   expand but Huge Chocolate ones which form part of our fundraising.
  
Each year, a number of retailers and publicans take one of our large decorative eggs and take part in the Lions Easter Egg Raffle.  We supply the Eggs, they sell the tickets at £1 each and after the cost of the eggs has been met, all profits are split equally between the outlets nominated charity and Lions club charity account.

If you are out and about and see one of these eggs, go on, buy a ticket and even if you fail to win the egg, your donation will be put to a good cause.








Celebrating St Patrick's Night with the Lions

A number of the club members and friends of Lions  showed their International leanings as they celebrated St Patrick's night at the Two Brewers in Olney.  A night of great Irish food, excellent Irish Dancing  by a group of youngsters from Bedford and foot tappin' Irish Music from Grafton Street - a brilliant Celtic Rock Band who really had the pub bouncing - what a great night.

 
  

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.
