Lions being busy bees
Lions get busy
Melksham Lions are pleased to have been able to assist in the provision of a beehive for the wonderful apiary at this tremendous community farm. Some of our Lions recently visited to see how busy the bees were beeing...
Oh the fun we had!
May 31st 2014: Melksham Market Place and the United Reformed Church saw a great day of celebration with lots to see and do. The event also included the International Town Criers Competition which was a great success, and quite loud!
Visiting Melksham again
Always a great night
12th April 2014: Melksham Assembly Hall saw this year's return of the Maesteg Choir, and oh what a night! You just HAD to be there. You weren't? Well then come along in 2015!

Who are 'we'? We are your local Lions, at Melksham, in Wiltshire; members of Lions Clubs International, a community service organisation dedicated to the idea that the men and women who live in a community are in the best position to know who needs help and why. Local Clubs are part of the world's largest such organisation, with more than 1.35 million members within 45,000 clubs, serving in 200 countries and geographical areas. The association is both non-political and non-sectarian.
As this year we celebrate forty years of service to our local community, we held our Charter Dinner on May 4th at the Shaw Country Hotel.
It was a wonderful gathering of members and friends from other nearby groups and a fine time was had by all.
2014 IS OUR 40TH YEAR!
Now would be a fantastic time to get involved, and you can help us celebrate this great milestone in our club history. We have a charter dinner planned for May and look forward to a memorable year both beforehand and after. Please get in touch
for information on how YOU can be a part of our great organisation.
