Two Melvin Jones Fellowships
The Club recently honoured the Town’s Civic Manager, Mrs Joyce Lewis, by presenting her with its highest award, a Melvin Jones Fellowship, named in memory of the founder of Lions Clubs International. This was in recognition of all the work Joyce undertakes to support voluntary agencies across Newbury, in addition to her role within the Town Hall.
Lion Derek Lawrence was also presented with a Melvin Jones Fellowship, recognising his long service through Lions to the local community. He currently organises and runs our Caravan Holiday scheme and the collection of used spectacles and is a vital member of the group that organises our annual fireworks display.
Lion Margot Payne presided over her first meeting and one of her first duties was to present a cheque to West Berkshire Homeless charity.
Fancy some fabulous music from Newbury's own Brass Band?
Then come and spend an afternoon at the fete, where you will hear
Watership Brass (The Newbury Town Band)
They will be performing a mixture of good old fashioned brass band music plus modern arrangements of family favourites.
Why not have a cup of tea, a slice of cake, listen and relax!
