Each year we place Giant Easter Eggs in venues across West Berkshire which are raffled to raise money for our Welfare Fund.
We are always looking for new venues, so please get in touch if you think your work place/social club/pub or business would be able to take an egg this year.
The Challenge is on to raise more than last year’s top venue, The Hatch Gate Inn, Burghfield, whose patrons raised the magnificent sum of £305!
The club recently honoured two individuals with its highest award.
Lion Drew completed a successful year as president of the club and handed over the chain of office to Lion Di Merchant at a recent meeting.
2017 is the year Lions Clubs around the world are celebrating 100 years of Service in the heart of their local communities. As part of these celebrations, the 770+ Clubs in Britain and Ireland have been challenged to meet a series of targets centred on health, youth, supporting others, the environment and recognising local achievers.
As we approach the half way point in this our Centennial Year, the Lions Club of Newbury proudly records its achievements to date in 2017.
The Newbury Lions were at the Yattendon and Frilsham Village Fete on the Late May Bank Holiday with our roundabout.
All the members of the Lions Club of Newbury are delighted to welcome Lion Sally-Jane to the Club.

We’ve collected all the money and are pleased to announce that a grand total of £2,216.66 was donated to our welfare funds. Thank you to everyone who took part either hosting or buying tickets.
