"Christian Around Britain" 

and Burnham on Sea Lions

Please support this very worthy cause


Welcome to Burnham on Sea and District Lions Club

We meet every month at the Fox & Goose Inn to discuss ways of helping in our local Community as well as International humanitarian good causes through Lions International.

Our Lions Club primarily serves the local communities of Burnham on sea, Berrow, Brean, Highbridge, Brent Knoll and surrounding villages. Within these areas, the Lions raise money throughout the year  with a wide range of fundraising events.



Our 38th  Anniversary Charter Night

We all enjoyed our evening celebrations at Laburnham House with good food and good company.

Well done everyone, it was a transformation!

LATEST NEWS

What a brilliant evening we had at our Business Meeting yesterday (4th Feb 2015) at our new venue, The Fox & Goose Inn, on the Bristol Road, Brent Knoll. A big thank you to Gail, the Manager, who offered us the meeting room. 


Joining us for the evening was the Director General, Alan Good.  We enjoyed his input to the meeting and I believe he enjoyed the good humour displayed by all the Lions Club Members. 


The whole meeting was so much fun for everyone, with so much laughter, but we were still able to get through all the items on the agenda including immediate financial assistance to a young family who only made the request for help 24 hours earlier.  
How fast can Lions move when necessary!!!!


It's Great being a Lion

Also a very warm welcome to Bob Jenner, our latest Lion Member who was badged up by the District Govenor, Alan Good

Marshalling at the Two Bays Tough Ten Challenge Sunday 15th February 2015



We were asked by Weston Lions to assist them in marshalling the 10 Mile run starting at Weston beach, along the promenade, all the way to Kewstoke and back, through the weston woods, across to Knightstone island and back to the beach to the finish line.
I feel worn out just writing about it, but over 1000 runners took part!!


The weather was very kind to our 7 marshals for the Sunday morning task.  A very rewarding event and an excellent way of raising funds for good causes.

Burnham-on-Sea Lions Christmas Train 2013

Although it was Friday 13th our Christmas Train took to the streets of Burnham and we all loved it, especially the children who came out of their warm and cosy houses to see it and SANTA.

Our thanks go to all those who took part for the evening, especially Mike, (oh I mean Santa),  and to Warren Farm who kindly provided us with the Land Rover, as they have done many times before.
