Tynedale Lions Club
Formed in 1977, the Club has been meeting in the picturesque area of Tynedale in Northumberland, most recently at Tynedale Golf Club on the banks of the River Tyne in Hexham.
We’re a friendly group who enjoy helping our community both through service and fundraising. Our main fundraising event is the Tynedale Beer Festival, which we organise with our partners Tynedale Rugby Club.
Tynedale was a local government district in south-west Northumberland. It had a resident population of 58,808 according to the 2001 Census, and was named after the River Tyne. Its main towns were Hexham, Haltwhistle and Prudhoe. The district contained part of Hadrian’s Wall.
With an area of 2,219 km² it was the second largest English district, after the East Riding of Yorkshire. It was bigger than several English counties, including Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, and Hertfordshire. It was also the second-least densely populated district (behind Eden, Cumbria).
