Membership 'Open' Evening

On 9th October we held an "Open" Evening at Sonning Golf Club.  It was great that several people showed up and met our club members, and we would like to thank them for taking their time to do so.  At the meeting they were given a short presentation of fund-raising efforts and how we go about putting our Charity fund to good use.  They were also briefed about our social activities.                                                                                           Having shown this initial interest by coming, it is hoped that they will, in the  near future, visit us again and become permanent members in our club.

Other Annual Events

Fireworks at Laurel Park

On Saturday the 3rd November 2018 we held our Annual Charity Firework Display at Laurel Park.
This year it was again presented by Woodley and Earley Lions Club assisted by Laurel Park Football Club.
The 20 minute high impact fireworks and music display went off well, and was enjoyed by hundreds of local families.                                                                                                                                  We would like to thank all those who attended for their support, and we shall be spending the coming weeks and months trying to find worthy causes for our Charity Fund. 

Tree of Light

On 24th November the annual Tree of Light event again took place in the Woodley Shopping Precinct - The Switching on of the Christmas Lights and Carol Concert.

     

    

We, the The Woodley & Earley Lions, were in attendance helping to hand out mince pies and mulled wine  The event was well attended and many people sponsored messages to loved ones ( alive and departed ), making a donation to our Charity Fund.  Thank you for your support.

Woodley Extravaganza

The annual Woodley Extravaganza was held on 2nd December, organised by the Woodley Shopping Precinct Management.  Woodley and Earley Lions were in attendance with Santa's sleigh.  The public were encouraged to sit on the sleigh and use it as a backdrop for festive photographs.  Many did, and generous donations to our Charity Fund were gratefully received.  Thank you.
