If you are a visitor to the Milton Keynes area, please have a look around our website via the buttons on the left and if you would like to join us at one of our meetings, please contact any of our members who will be only too pleased to give you any information you may want.    If you are local and would like find out more about the Lions club which serves your area, again speak to any of our members or send us your contact details via the contact us page.

  • Our Olney Calendar - 2015

    What a response we have had to our appeal for photos for Our Olney Calendar.   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 those which our sponsors will be choosing from.

  • Motorama

    Motorama was back in Olney Market Place and Old Cattle Market on 8th June 2014 and thanks to fantastic weather, was undoubtedly the best yet.    Photos are slowly being put onto the website so visit the link and see what we have.    If you are a classic owner and would like to join us in next years event, download and complete the Application form which you will find at the foot of the page.  We are 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.

  • Newport Pagnell Events

    After a very successfull trilogy of events at Newport Pagnell, we will be running 6 different fairs during 2014. These will all be based at the United Reform Church and include Artisan Food Festivals, Chocoholic Paradise, Gifts and Goodies.  For further information of these, click on the link or watch for our 'advertising stand' which is likely to be found in the town in the week or so before each event.

  • Dickens of a Christmas

    Another successful Dickens of a Christmas when the sun shone on the town and we welcomed visitors old and new to the event which is maintaining its popularity despite having started 18 years earlier.  

    Want to join us in 2014?
    If you are a craftsperson who would like to apply for a stall for our next event, simply go to our contact page and leave us your contact details and some information of your craft.    Once we have your details, we will add you to our list and you will receive an application form once our 2014 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').   

  • 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.

  • 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.

The Olney 2015 Calendar

It's Coming Together well.  

We have received over 200 photos from residents and visitors to Olney who have supplied us with potential images for our 2015 Calendar.   Have a look at them by clicking on the heading.   We have narrowed these down to around 40 which our sponsors will be reviewing to decide which of these will be used on their respective pages.   See the photos they have to choose from by clicking HERE

Newport Pagnell Calendar 2015

Our success with the Olney Calendar has seen us deciding to produce one for Newport Pagnell.    The NP Town Council have provided us with a number of images past and present 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 we aim to have these available for sale from October.

Autumn Artisan Food & Drink Fair

Our Fourth event in 2014 at the United Reformed church hall in Newport Pagnell will see a number of stalls carrying a wide range of  delectable products suitable for the entire family. The fantastic cakes, meats, drinks are all produced by the stallholders you will be speaking to (assuming you decide to pop in) and they are always delighted to have a chat with their customers. Talk nicely to many of them and you could well find yourself sampling their products before you inevitably buy.    Like all our Newport Pagnell fairs at the URC - entrance is entirely free so go along, you know it makes sense.

Easter Egg Raffle

Did you see one of our Giant Easter eggs which local businesses were raffling off?   We are still counting up the takings and settling the costs but come back to find out how much the event has raised and the various charities which have benefitted from this 50:50 raffle.

Another fantastic day in Olney when we had well over 100 vehicles appearing at our latest and largest Motorama 2014.   Have a look at some of the photos by clicking on our title bar.


Psychic Evening

A new venture for the club was our Psychic Evening which is took place place in the Carlton House club on 9th May and featured Barbara, a well respected medium from Milton Keynes.  Raising over £500 for our charity account, view our event page for further details.
