Buxton and District Lions Club supports many activities and projects to raise funds to assist individuals and organisations within the
Buxton and District community. The Buxton Annual Firework Display and Hog Roast held on Saturday 4th November 2017 was a good example of the club's involvement in the community, it was a great
success and enjoyed by all who attended on the night.
Our thanks go to Mark, Melissa and the team from Tin Man Scrap who sponsored the fireworks and provided free of charge 400 commemorative
mugs plus luminous magic wands for all the children to wave during the evening's show. This year all children under 15 attended free of charge, so thanks to them and everyone else for
supporting our bonfire and firework show. Clubbercise, a local community support group, put on a fabulous dance and light show which entertained us all prior to the fireworks display, whilst
Bright Opportunities made us a "Guy" who sat on top of the bonfire - many thanks to both these groups for their help.
This Christmas we are working in partnership with the Pavilion Gardens and are helping them with the "Christmas Lights Switch On" event,
Friday 17th November, and have asked Father Christmas to be there from 5-8pm. Father Christmas will also be at the Pavilion Garden's "Christmas Fair" Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December from
10.30am - 4.30pm. So please come and visit the Buxton Lions and Father Christmas on these dates.
Buxton & District Lions have raised thousands of pounds for local charities as well as performing many hours of community service.
Meetings are held twice a month, details in the club progamme page shown above. The 2nd Thursday of each month is a business meeting where we update each other on what we have been doing and
the 4th Friday is where we all sit down with our partners to enjoy a pleasant meal at the Cavendish Golf Club. As a member, you pay a subscription of just £5 a month to cover the administration
costs, so that everything raised from our activities goes back into the local community. So why not contact us or come and help us with some of our future events, we always need
I've been married to Elaine for many years and our involvement with the Lions has given us many happy memories and helped us make good
friends from our work in the local community. So if you are interested just send me an email and I will be pleased to take you to one of our meetings or invite you to get involved with one of
our events, so that you can see and experience what the Lions do in Buxton.
I am looking forward to hearing from you and meeting you soon.
