Hi all. We are sorry but at the moment all our Lions events for this year, 2021, have not been arranged due to government Covid restrictions. This includes the annual Lions Presentation Evening in February 2021. However a few cheques will be sent out to frontline organisations on Mersea Island to help them to support all of us.
Roy Chamberlain, Secretary.
The Lions beach hut will be closed until the end of February 2021 due to restrictions.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Well everyone, we have survived 2020, that is one year I don’t think anyone will miss.
We have a new year ahead, it hasn’t started as we would have liked, but we will get through it.
It has been a very difficult year for us Lions, we have not been able to hold our usual fortnightly meetings or raise funds for our charity account. We are usually active throughout the year, last year we were limited to 4 car parking duties at craft/car boot fayres, and some of us Lions did carry out our December Street Collection for, Home Alone Christmas Meals. 78 meals delivered on Christmas day, that was a record for us.
Things will get better, remember, where there is a need, there is a LION.
I wish you all a Happy and Healthy new year, Stay safe.
Sandra Bird. President. Mersea Island Lions Club.

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 there have been no events organised for 2021.
We are grateful to the following local companies for their continuing support of our activities:
