Edwinstowe and the Dukeries Lions

by | 9 March 2024 | Lions, Sherwood

Edwinstowe and the Dukeries Lions enjoyed a social get together at the Ollerton House Pub. The group is always supported by Alison and her team, so a little thank you was arranged and they had a lovely meal and a get together.

It was a fun night and the club was joined by some guests and some new members, plus some special friends from the Ukraine.

The club is certainly on the up, which is fabulous news; the more members, the more the club can do and raise much-needed money for the community. Members all enjoy what they do – especially the friendship and support.

The Lions meet once a month at South Forest complex Edwinstowe for a business meeting, then later in the month they have a social. They also enjoy arranged events and recently went greyhound racing (not with club funds!).

A brewery tour is planned, which will be fun. This might necessitate the hire of a minibus; is there anybody out there that might be able to help? Charity rates would be very nice!

The next social is making up 20 Easter hampers, to be placed in local establishments and raffled off. There is a growing band of businesses who support the Lions with raffles and raffle prizes. The club wishes to give a special mention to Bilsthorpe Co-op; since arriving in Bilsthorpe last year they have quickly engaged with the Lions and helped considerably, pledging Easter eggs for hampers and supplying sweets for Santa to give away on his sleigh run.

The Lions are always looking for new members – so why not find out more about them? It’s fun and worthwhile in equal measure; you can make a difference to your own life and others too.
