Classic Vehicle Show at Newbury College
A lovely sunny day brought out the crowds and our hot food stall was kept busy all day. From bacon rolls in the morning to burgers and hot dogs from lunchtime, Lions were cooking non-stop!
As a result of our efforts we were able to donate over £800 to the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research charity and also added to our welfare fund for local people in need.
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.
