Father Christmas was once again able to visit Morrisons in Glastonbury over Christmas and his helpers were members of Glastonbury and Street Lions Club.

The reindeer behaved themselves and Santa enjoyed talking to lots of children and their families.

The customers of Morrisons were in excellent festive spirit and extremely generous donating £700.24 to the Lions Charity Account. These funds will be used to support principally local causes and groups.

A spokesman for Glastonbury and Street Lions Club said "We want to thank Morrisons store and especially their Community Champion Stella, for hosting us and making us feel so welcome in the store. The donations have helped us support local people and for that we are grateful. We will be in touch with Santa Claus to see if he is able to join us again next December in Morrisons, Glastonbury!"


District Governor Lion James Mathers and Lion Ian Burt

Our District Governor Lion James Mathers and his wife Lion Gail from the St Austell Lions Club visited us for our January meeting.

He was able to present to Lion Ian Burt a 50 year service Certificate of Appreciation signed by our Patron Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Edinburgh and the current Council Chairman Lion David Pope.

Ian joined the Association as a Leo in Petersfield and took on a number of roles in the United Kingdom as a Leo before becoming a Lion in Petersfield and subsequently Dumbarton, Cheddar Vale, City of Wells and now Glastonbury and Street.  During  his time as a Leo he met his wife Lesley and also the signatory on his certificate, Lion David Pope.

The club congratulates Ian on attaining this milestone and we look forward to your continued contribution to Lions Clubs International.


The Club's next delivery of 4450 pairs of recycled spectacles is en route to our National Headquarters in Birmingham!
Thanks to Colin Marsh for arranging to transport a consignment from the Clubs in Zone K.
We must thank the opticians supporting our collection - Boots The Opticians in Street, Wells and Portishead, Specsavers in Street and Eyetech in Street. Without their help this project would not happen.
A team at our Headquarters use their considerable experience to select the items that are suitable for recycling and to sort them in preparation for distribution abroad. Any unusable or damaged spectacles are all re-cycled and sold, the funds being donated to sight related charities supported by Lions.
