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 40 years the same aims are still holding true.
The club is in District 105CE Zone 2A, 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.
Due to the ongoing Covid restrictions most events have been cancelled for 2021.
