The Lions Committee would like to thank all the S.M.I.L.E. Volunteers who helped make this year’s Lions Summer Show a huge success.
We were all pleased to Welcome and see all the members of the public who attended. Throughout the day all sorts of displays were put on with various types of Stalls, Arena Displays (the fun dog show was very well attended), Fire and Rescue (with their fat fire display), Vintage Buses running people to and from the show, Children’s Activities and plenty of refreshments. This was (so we have been told) our best and well presented summer show yet.
Looking forward to next year? If so the date is 11th August 2018. If you have any suggestions or comments on this years show or maybe something you would like to see at next years show then send a comment by visiting our website and using the contact page.
Thank you all again for your support.

Who we are and why we exist
The Lions Club of Mersea Island was chartered in 1978, its members wishing to help the less fortunate people within the Mersea Island community. Their aims were simple:-
♦ Community Service,
♦ Fund-raising to help the less fortunate within the community and further afield,
♦ and have fun and fellowship whilst doing it.
The Mersea Island Lions Club has continued to go from strength to strength. And after 37 years the same aims are still holding true.
The club is in Region 2, Zone A of District 105EA, and is always looking for new members and S.M.I.L.E. (Supporters of Mersea Island Lions Efforts) volunteers and will offer a warm welcome to all visitors.
