Welcome to the New Year

Stowmarket Lions are still work for the community in 2021.  If you need help just ask via email commserv@stowlions.org.uk.

We are still helping local residents by picking up their prescriptions and delivering to their door.  Most surgeries have their own delivery network, but some don’t offer this service themselves.  So we step up to help.

We had a fantastic time along with Santa at the Stowmarket food bank just before Christmas, but with the lockdown getting more restrictive they will need our and your help for some time.

Santa’s Sleigh Visits Stowmarket

Santa came to visit Stowmarket in spite of the Coronavirus restrictions that stopped him visiting house-to-house in Stowmarket and the villages as he has always done in the past.  This was as much a disappointment to us as it was to the children who missed coming out to see him outside their front doors.

Instead he had to be content to greet everybody socially distanced from his sleigh parked in the the car park at Tesco’s and in the town center.  He also visited the Community Centre on Hillside for the launch of the Food Bank.

Santa is pictured below left arriving at Tesco’s, centre at the Community Centre on Hillside and right joined by Keith Scarff, Mayor of Stowmarket and Lion Dave Thomas for the launch of the Food Bank Christmas Hamper Distribution.

Postponement of Stowmarket Lions events

It is with regret that we have to postpone the following events :

Lions Boxing postponed until October/November. Date to be advised.

Lions Bike Ride postponed from June 2020 until June 2021

Lion Golf challenge – cancelled for this year.

We have been constantly monitoring the news and feel that we need to pull both of these events at the time scheduled.  This is due to the timing of the impending peak of the outbreak of the Corona Virus (Covid-19).  

The Lions club of Stowmarket and District take the impact of holding events on our club and on the general public seriously.  We have made these decisions based on a number of criteria.
