  • Motorama

    The place to be on Sunday, 122th June is the Market Place in Olney.   From mid-day onwards, you can wallow in a bit of nostalgia when we anticipate over 100 classic and specialist vehicles to be parked up at this years Motorama.  Further details of the day can be found by clicking on our Motorama logo above.  If are a classic car owner and would like to join us in future years, download and complete the Application form which you will find at the foot of our Motorama page.   If you want further information which is not available from the site, simply  click here to visit our contact page and leave us details of your enquiry and someone will get back to you.


  • Our Town Calendars

    The photos are coming in thick and fast for the Olney Town Calendar.   Have a look at those we will be considering for the 2017 issue by clicking on this link  -  Find out how you can support us by Clicking here.
    We will also be issuing our Newport Pagnell Town Calendar with photos of the Town and surrounding area taken by one of our Newport Pagnell members.   Come back here around beginning of October to find out how and where you can purchase your copy.


  • Fire at Bull hits our Dickens Plans

    The recent fire which affected the Bull Inn at Olney has unfortunately seriously affected our Dickens of a Christmas plans.  The impact of losing this venue means that our ability to locate stalls in the centre of town is now no longer feasible and our event will now take place in our two remaining venues - the Olney Centre and Carlton House club.


  • Dickens of a Christmas

    Another successful event in December which despite a gloomy start to the day, saw our numbers steadily increase to our largest attendance for many years.   As a result, we had a great day helped once again by our friends group and the Cranfield Air Training Corps members who were key to the success of the day.
    The date for this years event will be 4th December so if you are interested in coming along, either as a participant or simply to have an enjoyable day out, get it into your diary now. 

    Want to join us at our next Craft event?
    If you want onto our mailing list simply go to our contact page and leave us your contact details and some information of your craft. We will add you to our list and we will be in touch to let you know the situation.   Remember as we get closer to the event, we do fill up but will keep your details and advise you of future events we are organising.    

    Please note Only items which have been handcrafted by the stallholder or a known friend can be brought to the event - no wholesale/retailing is acceptable and certainly no pre made Vintage Goods (whether second hand or 'new').   


  • What we supported this month

    At each monthly meeting, any appeals for support which the club has received will be discussed and the appropriate steps taken according to the view of the majority of those present.   Have a look at How we Serve our community.


  • Friends of Lions

    Could you be a "Friend of Lions"?
    Many of the events we organise take more manhours to cover than our existing club has available via our members meaning that we can only carry these out with the support of our Friends group.   This group of people are simply folks who are willing to give a few hours when available to help the club.   They have no desire to become part of the Lions organisation however they are public spirited enough to offer their help when they are free to do so and we inevitably manage to obtain the numbers we need.
    If you are reading this and feel that you could, perhaps, respond to an appeal for a few hours in our time of need, please go to our   contact page and simply say "Add me to your Friends" - it couldn't be easier.

Do you think this a challenge you could take on board?






 


Our 'Lions Toast' Whisky Tasting events are becoming very popular and our recent 'Spirit of India' was the best attended yet.

Over 60 people came along to the Carlton Club to learn about Paul John whisky from India and were enthralled with the story of this new boy on the block but were amazed once they started to taste the 5 expressions which were introduced by Shilton Almeida from the distillery.

Find out more about this and our past events by taking the link above.

  
 


 

Psychic Night



Our recent Psychic Night was another great success with over 70 people coming along to meet our two Mediums.  Those who were contacted by relations were quite stunned by the experience and the comments made by them certainly made the most sceptical amongs the audience think.  We appear to have built up a following for this event and Lion Tina is already looking at repeating the evening early in the new year.
  
 

 



Melvin Jones Fellowship



Probably the highest accolade any Lion member can receive is the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award. 
Named after the founder of Lions International, it  recognises the contribution made by individual members "for dedicated humanitarian services".  
We were delighted that 7 of our members have been awarded a Fellowship - find out more about the award and our recipients by following this link.
