The Club’s Annual Town Quiz brings together Lions, their families, friends and other social groups to test their ‘little grey cells’. The Message in a Bottle scheme is actively promoted by the Club. Links with local Primary and Secondary schools are nurtured via Lions Clubs Spectacle Collections and the Lions International Peace Poster Competition.
