Swanmore Village Fete – Saturday 9th July from 12 noon

Don’t forget to book the date in your diary now! Preparations are going well for our annual fete which will be held in the Swanmore Recreation Ground. 


We’re keeping all your regular favourites and following the huge success in 2019 we are going to host a dog show again, during the course of the afternoon. We’re not going to recreate Crufts, but hope to have a bit of fun and a chance for local dog-owners to show off their pet’s best attributes. There will be numerous prizes up for grabs for the best pooches in various classes.  They’ll be lots of other things to do and see, especially as we’ve booked Mill Cottage Farm Experience – petting zoo. 



During the next few weeks, more details will be published on our Fete website page plus there will be social media postings to keep you updated on developments.


The Lions’ Swanmore fete takes a lot of time and effort to plan and we need dozens of people to help us make the event work on the day. If you can volunteer for a few hours setting up the field, manning the gate or running a stall, we’d love to hear from you. Drop us your details via the contact us page on the website or email:

Wickham Beer Festival

This year the Lions helped on both days of the 24th Wickham Charity Beer Festival, pulling pints for the thirsty revellers on the Friday and the second providing one of our BBQs on Saturday.  Everyone had a great time and we’d like to say a huge thank you to all those who helped us raise nearly £800 to help Meon Valley Lions Club help local people.
