Welcome to Billingshurst and District Lions Club.

Here you will find a taste of what we get up to in and around one of the nicest villages in the South East.


For over 40 years at Christmas this Lions Club has toured the district spreading a little cheer and making our Christmas collections to enable us to continue to support good causes. We know from what you have told us that many of you look forward to our visits. Some have even told us that "Christmas doesn't start" until we've been round.

On Monday at our monthly meeting (this time via Zoom) the members agreed that we should plan to visit again. But this will only happen if it is safe to do so. Safe for our members safe for Santa and his elves and safe for you all.

So for the next few weeks we will be working on how we can achieve that. 

Watch this space for more information.


An initiative started by Billingshurst & District Lions Club, and now supported by many Lions Clubs throughout England has helped researchers find a breakthough in the treatment of one kind of Brain Tumour.

Money raised locally has enabled this Lions Club to donate a further £900 to the project this year. Thank you!

After 3 long months we have reopened the doors to our bookshop.                         

Our shop  re-opened on Thursday 23rd July.  Like with many other shops we have had to make some changes in the way we will operate.  Those changes are

New Lions President

In the normal course of events Billingshurst and District Lions Club would have held a garden party to celebrate the installation of our new president - Viv Diggens taking over from Joan Bobker. However this was not possible under the current safety considerations. So the 2 of them got together with appropriate social distancing and passed the baton.

We thank Joan for her tireless efforts over the past year and wish Viv all the best for his second term of office.

Community Services

We offer a variety of support to those in need. This includes three mobility scooters which are loaned out when available. Please click here to go to the "Community Services" Page.
