Our 'Lions Toast' Whisky Tasting events have been immensely popular but unfortunately due to such an active calendar during 2015 we haven't had one for 15 months - but that is about to change.
Our 5th event taking place on 14th October will be one which is quite different in many ways and may well challenge some preconceptions of whisky held by many.

Our Town Calendars 2017
Another Successful Year in 2016 - Can we repeat it in 2017?
Have a look at our entries for the Olney Town Calendar - Click on this link
Our 2016 Olney and Newport Pagnell Town calendars and Olney Christmas Cards sold well helping us to raise over £2000 so we intend to produce both items for 2017. The Photos have been selected and printing has almost commenced. Keep an eye on the posters that will be going up in the two towns to see how you can get your copy.

Do you think this a challenge you could take on board?
Newport Pagnell Civil War Re-enactment
This two day event was a real cracker when around 2000 members of the English War Reenactment Society descended on Newport Pagnell's Bury Field to give a range of demonstrations of what life was like in the days of Oliver Cromwell and the English Civil War. The Lions club were there selling our books and we did a great trade which helped give us a presence in the town. We had already made a significant donation to the project which will see the local schools continuing to learn about the Newport Pagnell's history and how it was affected by the conflicts.
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.
