Meon Valley Lions In Lockdown - The Directory Group

Meon Valley Lions in lockdown


Despite being in lockdown the Lions have continued to support the local community and still continue with the day to day business of the Club.  1st June saw a ‘zoom lockdown’ version of our annual Presidential handover to our incoming President Eddy Barringer.  True to form the Lions still managed to celebrate in a zoom meeting.  The Club would like to thank Andrew Brown for holding the reigns over what has been a very difficult time.

Supporting the local community

With a Home Schooling in full swing families have been rushing to stock up on printers to help educate children at home.  Meon Valley Lions Club was pleased to help a family who didn’t have facility to print at home, with school work having to be delivered by a Homestart volunteer.  No excuses for late homework now!!


The Foodbanks continue to provide essential supplies to many families in the Meon Valley.  The generosity of our communities means this help can be delivered every week and of course, thanks to the volunteers of the Meon Valley Food Bank and the Waltham Chase Methodist Food Bank.


Future events

Sadly, as with other public events the 2020 Swanmore Fete has been cancelled but we’re looking at other fundraising events that we might be able to hold once we are out of lockdown.  We’ll keep you updated on our website but in the meantime please add next year’s Swanmore Fete to your diary: Saturday 12th July 2021.
