On Sunday 4th June the Lions are hosting a ‘Classic Gathering’ at Wellesbourne Sports Field, Loxley Close, from 12 Noon until 4pm. Please come along to this event which is completely free to visitors. There will be classic cars, traction engines, vintage bikes, displays, refreshments and much much more!!

We are getting closer to our big event of the year, which we jointly host with Shakespeare Lions, the annual raft race from Wasperton to Stratford. This year’s race will take place on Sunday 23rd July. Our main beneficiary will be ‘Riding for the Disabled (RDA)’, based in Warwick. Our target is to raise over £10,000 to help to fund items to be used in a new centre of excellence to be constructed in Shrewley. If you would like to enter a team in the race, please take a look at our dedicated website – – this will give you all the information needed.

I am pleased to announce that just over One Thousand pounds was raised from our giant Easter Eggs which were placed in local pubs, restaurants and businesses in the district. The lions would like to say a big thank you to all of the hosts and to everybody who bought a ticket and helped us to raise such an impressive sum.

On Saturday 6th May we held a fun-filled evening of ‘LION RACING’ at Barford Memorial Hall to raise money towards the rebuilding of Barford Youth & Community Centre. The hall was packed and as well as the racing, people enjoyed a meal of lasagne along with a large selection of desserts.
