Thank you

A very big thank you to the residents of Chelmsley Wood and Marston Green for their generosity during our Christmas Food Collections.

We estimate that we collected around £6,000 worth of food during the three weekends and this has all been distributed to Around Again Social Supermarket and to the Chelmsley Wood Foodbank. We also collected over £2,500 in cash and online donations and we are using some of this to continue shopping for the two foodbanks.










Prostate Screening Free Home Tests

We are unable to run one of our in person prostate screenings but thanks to charity, Graham Fulford, we can offer free home test kits. Initially we are offering 50 free tests to residents of the B37 postcode. To claim your free test go to and use code MGLN100 at the checkout to get the test for free. 

Although the tests are free to you, we will have to pay £22 per test. If you feel able to contribute to thsi cost you can donate at




Food Collection a great success!

Thank you residents of Marston Green. Our food collection around the village produced a great quantity of food and other essentials supplies. These have been sorted and distributed to Around Again Social Supermarket and Chelmsley Wood Covid-19 Support Group foodbanks. Thank you also to The Picnic Basket for taking in donations for us.


PSA Testing 


Get yourself checked with a PSA blood test

We have previously run PSA Testing events in conjunction with the Graham Fulford Charitable Trust. The coronavirus pandemic has made in person testing difficult but we will soon be launching a home test facility

 A PSA test is a simple blood test that can detect early signs of prostate disease and help save lives before the disease becomes too advanced.

Prostate cancer charities suggest that all men over 40 have a PSA test and ideally repeat the test yearly. We have attached a leaflet expaining about prostate cancer screening and the PSA test which can be downloaded by clicking on the link below:
(Thanks to the Tackle and CHAPS charities for the use of their leaflet)

The test is free but a donation towards the cost of each test would be gratefully received. You can donate by clicking this button  


Three defibrillators for Marston Green and Chelmsley Wood

There are now two new defibrillators in Marston Green thanks to the Lions and to the support of the One Stop carrier bag fund..

One defibrilator is located on the outside of the Parish Hall and the other on the outside of the One Stop shop opposite the station.

There is also one situated at the Meriden Adventure Playground Association (MAPA) in Meriden Park.

All are automatic and only require the user to stick to pads onto the patient. Access is via a 999 call when the ambulance service will provide the cabinet code and also help,the user to operate it.







A wheelchair ramp for Marston Green Tennis Club

We recently reponded to a request for help from Marston Green Tennis Club who wanted to provide disabled access to their clubhouse. We happily provided a portable ramp for them to use.












Lions provide MAPA with computer equipment

The Meriden Adventure Playground Association (MAPA) runs a free playground for children aged 7 and above allowing adventure play in a safe environment. We recently donated £1,300 to them to provide a laptop, printer and internet for two years. You can find out more about MAPA at

About us

Marston Green & District Lions Club was formed in 1977 and originally covered the whole of North Solihull. It began with 25 members who were mainly residents in the village and who included doctors and staff from the two hospitals, local businessmen, the deputy Mayor of Solihull and two local councillors.

For many years the club held their meetings at the maternity hospital and this is how the stork came to feature on the clubs banner and badge.
Today the club is still going strong and meets every 2nd and 4th Wednesday at the Banbury Social Club.

 If you would like to come to one of our meetings please email us at
