Olney Christmas Cards
We have had so many fantastic photographs sent to us over the past couple of years that we just had to convert some of them into Christmas Cards and here they are. We will be selling them in packs of 6 cards with envelopes for only £3 per pack. Perfect cards for your family and friends who are that little bit special. Purchase these at the Olney Markets or visit our Contact Page by taking this link or click here to get more information.
Melvin Jones Fellowship
Probably the highest accolade any Lion member can
receive is the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award.
Named after the founder of Lions International, it recognises the contribution made by individual members "for dedicated humanitarian services". Find out more about the award and the recipients by following this link.
As we head towards the Festive Season, why not watch the Lions Panto? Well not quite a panto as this was produced in the USA where they don't know about such things but follow Dorothy as she takes the yellow brick road to find out more about Lions.
Watch this short video to learn more.
Olney's biggest event of the year will be taking place on 6th December this year and Lions will once again be running our 3 Craft Fayres but unfortunately due to the forthcoming hospitalisation of one of our falconers, we won't be having our Birds of Prey exhibition (They will be back next year though!).
