Lions On The Loose

Melksham Lions are very pleased to be able to attend as well as organise a number of events throughout the year, and from time to time we like to get together for a bit of a social too. Here you’ll find a list of dates, events and activities that we have on our calendar; we look forward to seeing you for some of them 🙂

    Always on our annual agenda, we are pleased to be back again for this year's Party In The Park. Our stall will once again be offering all sorts of treats and prizes; why not come along and have a bit of fun, and have a chat with our members (over a munch of cake perhaps). We look forward to seeing you and everyone on the day!

    For more information about this event as a whole, here's a link to an article in our local paper: Melksham News

    See you there!

    We love attending this event! Lots of smiley faces; especially on those carrying our cuddly lions away! More to be won this year with our tombola, and other fun and games to be had. Not to mention a cake or two perhaps... With lots of information on hand about what we get up to, why not come have a chat, or just cake if you prefer...

    As a small cog in a very large machine, we are pleased to be able to join up with other local Lions clubs from time to time, and are often mutually invited to attend annual charter dinners. This is one of them! Always a nice time to be had, and an opportunity to meet old and make new friends, and discuss all things Lions.

    We like to take a breath every now and again, so what better way than to head for the canal and serene chug along the waterways... This is just one of the social activities that we enjoy as a club. All such activities are self-funded by the attending individuals; we just like to get together for some casual time once in a while.
