Meetings

We organise a variety of social events over the year when partners, family and friends are encouraged to join us.  The club has a particular speciality!:

At Knutsford we do like our rhymes,
To liven up our social times
At Charter and 4Ps
And handover parties
We delight with performers of rhymes!
 
The following are a selection of our activities in recent years:

HANDOVER LUNCH

In July we have an informal lunch/ barbecue to mark the handover to our new Club President.  

It is usually held in a member's garden and preparation of food is shared between members to keep down the cost.

Rhymers are common here as well - an example is the Handover Verses in July 2016

CHARTER MEAL

In May we organise a dinner to celebrate the anniversary of the official formation of our Club in May 1976.   This is our only formal event but speeches are kept to a minimum!!  Until 2015 the meal was followed with some music and dancing, but in May 2015 we decided to change to a Charter lunch at High Legh Park Golf Club, which also proved very popular in 2016.  Friends and members of other local Lions Clubs are invited to attend.  

In recent years our visiting District Governors (or representatives) joined the rhyming spirit of our club by reading some of their own specially prepared verses!  We look forward to some more verses in the future - always good to raise the spirits.

Verses by our Charter Guests (2014-2016)

WALKS

We regularly arrange a gentle walk/amble followed by lunch at a nearby Pub.  A few members just come along for the lunch!  Walks have included Lower Peover, Tatton Park, Northwich Woodlands (Anderton area), Dunham Massey, Bluebell Walk at Arley, Daffodil Walk at Whitegate and around Rudyard Lake.

VISITS

Visits have been arranged to RAF Cosford, Halfpenny Green Vineyard, Moorcroft Pottery, The Hat Museum Stockport, Lower Moss Wood and a trip to York for the Christmas markets.

In 2014 we had a very interesting Group Visit to the Lewis Carroll Centre/Daresbury Church - and donned our maddest hats for the Tea Party!    For more pictures and information see our Facebook page (7 May 2014).

 

THEATRE TRIPS

Groups of members/friends regularly attend local theatre performances at - Garrick Altrincham, CHADS, Wilmslow Green Room, Gawsorth Hall etc.

'VERSE AND WORSE' EVENINGS

This is one of our speciality events which gives an opportunity for up and coming rhymers (or poets?) to read out a selection of rhymes (or poems?).  Some write their own, some read out works by others, some just come to applaud the talent?  It all makes for a very light-hearted evening with supper included.  Non-members encouraged to participate! 

At our November 2013 "Verse & Even Worse" evening one of our newest members read an excellent poem that she had written about her experiences with our Club - "An Ode to Knutsford Lions"

OTHER ACTIVITIES:

Safari Suppers - A themed evening with three courses at different houses.  Themes have included Arabian Nights and 60's Night.

Bowls Evening - at local Bowling Club followed by supper.
