WELLESBOURNE AND DISTRICT LIONS CLUB :
I hope you are all looking forward to the Spring. The Lions are busy preparing for three major fundraising events. First of all, in the run up to Easter, we will be involved in operation Giant Easter Egg!! We will once again be asking local shops, pubs, restaurants and businesses to host one of our amazing chocolate eggs and asking them to persuade all of you generous folk to part with £1 to be in with a chance to win one of them. If you feel able to host one of our eggs, then please contact Lion John Liley, on 01789 841745.
Secondly, we are pleased to announce a fantastic new joint venture which we are hosting with our friends from Shakespeare Lions – ‘Lions BFG and Family Festival’ – a beer, food and gin festival on the evening of Friday 31st May and from midday on Saturday 1st June, at the newly refurbished Home Guard Club in Tiddington. There will be family entertainment on Saturday afternoon and a well known local band will be playing on the Saturday Night. Please pencil this in your diaries and look out for updates as we get nearer the dates.
The third event is the return of our ‘Classic Funday’ which we are holding on Sunday 8th September between 12 noon and 4pm. There will be classic vehicles on display, children’s go karts, family fun, food, drink and more. Entry is free for display vehicles and for all visitors! There is even a free burger for all classic vehicle owners that register in advance!! New for this year is a ‘Car Treasure Hunt’ starting at 10am. The cost to enter is £20 per car. Please contact Lion Simon Oram on 01789 840704 for more information or for early registration.
I would also like to invite you all to come to a ‘Family Table Games Evening’ which we are holding on Saturday 30th March from 6pm to 10pm at Wellesbourne Church Rooms. This is a fun event with games suitable for all ages. There will be refreshments available. Please contact Lion John Liley on 01789 841745 for more information. ALL WELCOME.
Forthcoming event 60’s Revival Night in Barford Memorial Hall in April. Dancing to Shadowfax Live band. Bar, buffet and raffle. Tickets will be limited - watch out for details.
