All events on hold but The Lions continue to serve the community    covid19


We are always grateful for any donation to the Lions which will be used entirely for our ongoing support of local causes

We were unable to open the Playground this year due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Playground will now remain closed for the winter. We hope to be able to open in 2021 and we will make an announcement on the website depending upon the situation nearer the time.

Yeo Valley Lions are busy every Friday taking donations from Yatton Youth Club and Yatton Co-op to the Foodbank in Clevedon. We often also transport large amounts from the Foodbank to their storage depot in Kenn Rd. We then bring food parcels back to the Youth Club ready for their collection and distribution every Thursday. On a recent Friday we delivered 37 bags of kindly donated food and sundries from local residents of Yatton, Congresbury and Wrington to the Foodbank.

2020 Jesse May Charity Golf Day – A Big Success Despite Corona Virus

Every year Yeo Valley Lions organise a charity golf day and donate all the proceedings to a selected charity. This year’s chosen charity is the Jesse May Children’s Hospice. Originally planned for April this year, due to the Corona Virus Pandemic lockdown they had to postpone the event. Keeping within the strict guidelines for playing golf under the current restrictions, YVL in conjunction with Tall Pines Golf Club the event was held on Thursday 24 September.

The Playground was due to reopen for the 2020 season on 1st April. However in view of advice, for a number of reasons to do with hygiene, maintenance, toilet facilities etc we are not now in a position to reopen as planned. When we are able to bring the Playground back into use we will announce that here. You may be assured that we have not taken this decision lightly and we are determined to reopen the Playground just as soon as we feel it safe, sensible and practicable to do so.

Nick and Cas of the Butchers Arms Yatton received a certificate of appreciation from Pete Selvey, President of Yeo Valley Lions Club, in recognition of the support given to the community over the past few months. Whilst we were in lockdown the pub was used as a base for free community meals. These were initiated by Jonny Burnett but extremely well prepared and delivered by a host of volunteers. Nick and Cas were also instrumental in supplying and delivering bespoke veg boxes whilst continuing with free delivery of their Sunday roasts. All of this has been greatly appreciated by the local community for which we are all very grateful.
