Happy New Year from the Meon Valley Lions  

Sheila being badged as a LionMeon Valley Lions are pleased to welcome another lady member to our Club. Sheila Campbell was officially badged as a Lion, sponsored by Lion Sue Wooldridge. Sheila's husband John has been with Lions since 2003 and after many of years of helping and supporting us as a partner, she's now a Lion in her own right! 

On the fund raising front, it's also been a busy period. The Father Christmas collections in December raised 4,812.35, only 100 short of our best-ever amount for this Christmas charity bucket collection. The Bauble Hunt in Bere Forest in December attracted huge numbers and a combination of the Lions BBQ and entrance fees meant that Naomi House benefited to the tune of 4,550.62. The next event on the horizon is the Ford Charity Fishing Festival on Weston Shore, which is going ahead again this year despite the closure of the Ford Southampton factory. For more details see our events page.
