A group of ,members enjoyed a very informative visit to Wyke Farms near Evercreech and this was followed by a most enjoyable lunch at Jon Thorners restaurant, The Den.
During the visit our President Lion David Atkins took the opportunity to present a 25 year service chevron to Lion Peter Warburton.


At a social evening in June Lion Wendy Lynn handed over the reins of the club to Lion David Atkins for the next year.

During the evening Lion Rod Speed was presented with a Melvin Jones Fellowship in recognition of 40 years service to both the club and Lions Clubs International. 

A 30 years service chevron was also presented to Lion Peter Hill.


This year the Lions Club of Glastonbury and Street broke with convention and held their Christmas Social on twelfth night at Ashcott Village Hall. They enjoyed an excellent buffet supper accompanied by drinks, great company and some homespun entertainment.




On a summer's evening in August - well it was grey and overcast - a number of members were introduced to the most English of games, croquet.

Dave and Jeannie Wall hosted the evening at the Victoria Club, Street and taught us the secrets of two types of croquet - Association and Golf.

To those who have not played the game it appears gentile but in reality it is anything but and can bring out the agressive and competitive side in most people.

Once the evening began to draw in we went into the bar and enjoyed a picnic kindly provided by the Walls.


Each year the Lions clubs in our District 105SW, which covers Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, hold an annual Convention in the south west which has both business and soical elements. 

The business part takes place on the Saturday during the day and it is sandwiched by social events on the Friday and Saturday evenings.

Traditionally the Friday night is Fancy Dress which always follows a theme which is selected by that year's District Governor/Chairman.

Here are a couple of photgraphs from 2008 and 2009 - anything goes!
