Lion President 2021-2022, Derek White

As the New Lion year begins in July, and with the recent announcement of the lifting of the Covid restrictions, we look forward once again to resuming our activities serving the communities of Yatton, Claverham, Wrington, Congresbury, Langford and Churchill and surrounding areas.

We have not been totally inactive during the last 16 months however, and have been using the Lions community mini bus to transport locally donated grocery items to and from the food bank at Clevedon, and aided by the Youth Club have assisted the distribution of food parcels to the households in most need.

We also managed to organise a charity golf day back in September prior to the second lockdown, which allowed us to make a very gratefully received donation to the Jesse May Charity, who give hospice care for sick children at home. (details of this year’s golf day, and other events can be found on the web site events page)

Having been closed due to Covid restrictions, the playground is now back in operation with strict daily cleaning regimes and safety inspections being carried out by the Lions volunteers, and it is being well used by the registered families. We also have managed to support the Alzheimer’s Society throughout the pandemic, and along with our regular mini-bus shopping trips, we hope soon to be resuming our normal activities throughout the coming year.

Yeo Valley Lions Beer and Cider Festival was a great success. Thank you to our sponsors and all who supported and attended.

A big thank you to BAM Ritchies for the fantastic work carried out by over 50 people on 9th May, making significant improvements to the Playground. More detail on this will appear shortly.

As in previous years, Family Fun Days will be held at the Playground on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1.30 pm to 4 pm, in the school holidays. Members are free to join in on these days, they are, however noisy with lots going on and this may not be the best environment for some members.

Thank You To All Who So Generously Supported Our Santa Sleigh Visiting Streets In Our Area. 

Father Christmas has now returned to the North Pole for a well earned rest, following his exertions in the run up to Christmas. Before he left he asked me to thank all the residents of the area covered by Yeo Valley Lions Club (Yatton, Cleeve, Claverham, Congresbury, Wrington and Langford) for the support they gave whilst he was on his annual tour round the district. He was delighted that he was able to assist the Lions raise £7224 to enable them to continue helping others throughout the year, and appreciated the warm reception that he and his band of elves received wherever they went. In addition club members raised a further £2004 though the collections at their Carol Service and at Cadbury Wyevale Garden Centre and Budgens, Langford (to both of whom grateful thanks).
