Friday 25th January saw a meeting of minds at Glastonbury Town Hall as twenty teams gathered to compete in the 35th annual Brains of Avalon Quiz hosted by the Glastonbury and Street Lions Club. After almost two hours of brain teasing questions, on a wide range of subjects, by Quizmaster Lion Chris Ford the top spot was claimed by team Middle Rump narrowly beating last year’s winners Forum by just 2 points!

The Brains of Avalon plaque was presented to the Middle Rump team by Lion President Dave Atkins who also gave thanks to all those who had attended and supported the Lions fundraising effort in aid of local charities.

Members of the Lions Club of Glastonbury and Street recently visited the Morrisons store in Glastonbury to say thank you for hosting both Father Christmas and the club's Christmas Collection in December.

A certificate of appreciation was presented to store manager Ryan Frost and members took the opportunity to update Ryan on the success of the collection.  In the run up to Christmas Morrisons customers were good enough to donate £1396 to the Club's Charitable Trust Account.  Most of this money will be dispersed to local causes. 

A spokesman for the club said "For a number of years we have been fortunate enough at Christmas to be welcomed by Morrisons and once again their customers were very generous helping us to raise a significant sum that will help Glastonbury and Street Lions Club support a number of individuals and groups in the coming months."
