Variety Night

 

7th November 2015

 

A great night of entertainment with West End singer Phil Cavill & The Sun's 'Comedian of the Year' Mike Pugh. With dinner & drinks members and non members are welcome to join us at this fund raising event at Hutton Banqueting suite.  Get in touch if you would like to book a table.   

Lions Hand Over

 

19th July 2015

 

A Members only afternoon for the current President Mac McAllister to hand over & welcome in our new President and announce Lion of the Year. An enjoyable afternoon that highlights the appreciation of all the time and effort the Lions put in to raising well needed funds for local charities.

Stock Flower Festival

 

June 2015

 

This is fundamentally an exercise in public relations, combined with boosting the attendance at Stock's annual flower festival. A number of Brentwood Lions attend and try to spread the word on the virtues of Lionism and to promote the personal advantages of becoming a Member of the World's Largest Service Club Organisation.

Golf Day at The Bentley

 

4th June 2015

 

An afternoon of golf, 18 holes, preceded by coffee and a bacon roll.  Aimed at fund-raising but targetting enjoyment and good rapport.  The early evening sees us sitting down to a good meal, joined by those Members of Brentwood Lions who have not yet discovered the frustrations of Golf.  Prizes are presented to those who display exceptional skill (or just good fortune). £50 for the whole day or £25 for either, golf only or evening meal. Why not visit their website at www.bentleygolfclub.com

Spring Holiday 

 

May 2015

 

This is a holiday event and which may go abroad.  Sometimes we go for a long weekend and sometimes for a whole week.  In 2013 we took a cruise for a week from Venice.  In 2012 it was a four day trip to Malta.  The options for 2015 are still being considered.

Fun Quiz

 

23rd May 2015

 

Another of our annual events held in Stock Village Hall.  The emphasis is on having fun rather than serious brain-testing.  The cost is £12 per person which will include a fish and chips supper. Tables are a maximum of 8 persons. Bar available. Visit Stock Village Hall's website at www.stock.org.uk

Charter Anniversary Our 40th Birthday Party

 

18th April 2015

 

The celebration of the granting of our Charter in 1974 and therefore our '41st Birthday Party'.  This is our one formal occasion where we entertain our ladies and invite guests to be a part of our celebration.  It is a Dinner and Dance evening with, yes I'm afraid, a few 'short' speeches.  Further details in due course.

Sunday 7th September 2014

 

Enjoy numerous events that everyone can enjoy such as donkey rides and carnival stores! Also why not stop by our licenced bar for refreshments as well as our BBQ for some delicious food. But with all that excitement don't miss our main event, The Stock Donkey Derby 2014 race! Where individuals mount a donkey and race other riders around our own marked out racing course.

Holiday with our Ladies 

 

17th - 24th May 2014


This has become an annual event and is inevitably a foreign trip.  Sometimes we go for a long weekend and sometimes for a whole week.  In 2013 we took a cruise for a week from Venice.  In 2012 it was a four day trip to Malta.  The options for 2014 are still being considered.

Quiz Night

40 YEARS OF SERVICE - BRENTWOOD LIONS CLUB

 

5th Apirl 2014

 

Brentwood Lions Club celebrated their 40th Anniversary at The Ivory Rooms in Billericay, shortly before Easter.  Our President this year, the ever popular Mac McAllister is seen on the left enjoying a glass of his favourite tipple whilst protectively guarding his wife Margaret from any other 'Prowling Lions'.  Good food and drink but most importantly, good fellowship, was the order of the day with only one speech from Lion Mac before the dancing started.

Charter Anniversary Our big 40th Birthday Party

Cheese and Wine Night

This is an annual event for Lions and Partners and each year is held at the home of one of our Members. 
This Year Bryan will be our host.

Christmas Party / Meal 

                   

14th December 2013 

 

The event varies from year to year but this year we will be joining the festivities at the now established, Stock Christmas Party.  It will be held in the Village Hall in Stock, a good meal with music provided by a female singer who's main
repertoire comprises songs from our past.  We anticipate about 65 people from Stock and 35 Members of Brentwood Lions Club with our close friends.

Christmas Sleigh Collections

 

9th, 10th, 12th, 14th, 16th, 17th and 19th December 

 

We have our own sleigh and we recruit anyone we can to help and in particular of course, Father Christmas. This is a door to door collection in North Brentwood. Licenced by Brentwood Council, the delight on the faces of young and old alike  is something special to behold. Our collection is usually donated to an organisation called Homestart who arrange a visit to a pantomime for children from needy backgrounds, many of whom have never been to a pantomime before.

                    

Panto

 

23rd December 2013

 

On Monday 23rd December, a party of 60 children and some parents went by coach from Brentwood to Chemsford to see the pantomime, Cinderella. The group were from Homestart who support families who have a child with special needs, under the age of 5.

 

Brentwood Lions a have supported this event for many years and they are grateful to the people of brentwood. If you saw their sleigh around the streets or in Brentwood High Street, youi will doubtless have seen Santa with the Lions, encouraging contributions to help those less fortunate than some.

STAG 

 

27th September - 1st October  

 

An annual event.  Just for Members this year we will fly out of Southend to Malaga where we will collect a hire car and spend 2 nights at Benalmedena, followed by lunch in Ronda on the Sunday, then returning to the coast at Marbella for a further 2 nights, flying home on Tuesday evening.  We tend to stay at reasonable 4* hotels in single rooms, eat (and drink) at fairly good restaurants without our wives advising on what
is good (or not so good) for us.  Sometimes we think we know better.

ANNUAL CHARITY GOLF DAY

Thursday 13th June

 

As in recent years, The Bentley Golf Club in Ongar Road, Brentwood, will be our hosts for this 18 hole individual Stableford competition.
Commencing with coffee and a bacon roll at about 1-00pm, players will then meet the 'Test' of this premier parkland course which, whilst only just over 40 years old, now has a 'Silver Ranking' in the HSBC schedule of courses.
This challenge, if you choose to accept it, will include a 'longest drive' and a 'nearest the pin' contest.
The evening will include a three course meal and prize-giving. The cost £50 per head or £30 for the evening only.

LIONS FUN QUIZ EVENING

 

Saturday 26th May

 

As with all other such quizzes in recent years, it will have a 'Fun' bias in an endeavour to slightly handicap those professional quiz goers who always seem to walk away with the prizes.
As before there will be a Fish and Chips Supper inclusive within the entry cost. A bar will be available for drinks. Tables of eight preferred but if you have no other colleagues available, we can arrange for you to sit with others who just appreciate a good 'fun' night out. Cost £12.00.
Venue is Stock Village Hall and on this occasion we will also be presenting two cheques, one to Helen Rollason Cancer Charity and the other to the Transplant Continuing Care Unit at Papworth Hospital, remembering one of our dear friends in Stock, who died last year.
