Winner of the NWN Awards 2018
We were thrilled when we were shortlisted in this year’s Best in Business Awards organised by the Newbury Weekly News. In a new category, Best Regional Event, the Club put forward our Fireworks event which has been held every year at Newbury Racecourse for over 35 years. The process involved an in-depth interview where questions were asked about planning, financial objectives, donations made from proceeds and wider community involvement.
At the awards dinner on Friday 2nd November, Newbury Lions Annual Fireworks spectacular was named as the Best Regional Event of 2018, against some strong opposition. The judges were impressed with the drive and passion of our members who, despite falling membership, are determined to keep the event going for the benefit of the local community.
Lion Margot Payne presided over her first meeting and one of her first duties was to present a cheque to West Berkshire Homeless charity.
Fancy some fabulous music from Newbury's own Brass Band?
Then come and spend an afternoon at the fete, where you will hear
Watership Brass (The Newbury Town Band)
They will be performing a mixture of good old fashioned brass band music plus modern arrangements of family favourites.
Why not have a cup of tea, a slice of cake, listen and relax!
3rd prize in Speen Fete Raffle!
What a delicious donation. Thank you!
