Newbury Club Meetings
The club meets every fourth Thursday in the month at the Chequers Hotel, Newbury at 7:30pm to plan fund raising events and discuss welfare requests. Members also meet socially for dinner and chat every second Thursday at local hostelries.
Newbury Lions Club is a member of Zone 4J with clubs from Andover, Basingstoke, and Loddon Valley. The Zone clubs meet five times a year at different venues with clubs taking turns to act as host. The meeting combines business with a social meal and allows the zone clubs to share experiences and ideas and to work together on special projects.
Zone Chairman for 2013/2014 was Judith Colby from the Newbury Lions Club
The zone is one of a number that make up District 105D, which covers Berkshire, Hampshire, Dorset and parts of Buckinghamshire. The District holds an annual Convention with international guest speakers, where the year’s achievements are celebrated. The District is organised by a team of experienced Lions, led by the District Governor, who serves for one year.
District Governor for 2013/14 was Lion David Merchant from the Newbury Lions Club
