As a group, as well as working hard to support the community we also let our hair down from time to time just 'to have fun together'. As well as giving pleasure in their own right these functions also contribute to 'team building' so we work even better together on our fundraising and community activities.

Note: our constitution does not allow us to use money collected for charitable causes to fund club outings or other fellowship events. All such events are fully funded from our own pockets.

The club has a full programme of social events, to most of which guests are also invited. See the 'Future Events' page for functions that are planned.

On this page we also illustrate some of our recent social events. For a full list of our social events in the past year, click here.


In addition to our annual 'Charter Anniversary Lunch' in February we have at least two informal dinners together each year, including one at Christmas and one at the end of June, when we 'Changeover' the Club's President, Vice President and Committee Chairs. Members are able to invite guests to these functions.

Club members and their invited guests enjoyed a canal trip on the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, setting off from Little Baddow one crisp October afternoon, and returning to base at nightfall.

In February the Lions Club invited Bruce Bellringer, who is a local author from the 'Ladygate Scribblers' Club, together with his Japanese wife, Kuniko, to give us a talk on 'Life in Japan'. They also brought along some Japanese artefacts. The talk was enjoyed by all, and in appreciation the Lions gave a donation to Bruce's sponsored Charity, the Wickford Branch of Talking Newspapers for the Blind.
