Barton Lions Celebrate their 7th birthday with a Mad Hatters Tea Party


A glorious summers day stretched ahead for Barton Under Needwood Lions Club who celebrated their 7th birthday by holding a Mad Hatters Tea Party last weekend.

Lions from far and wide attended to help celebrate, from our past District Governor Neil Martin from Whalley in Lancashire to members from Stafford, Stone, Swadlincote, Lichfield, Rugeley, Stoke and of course Barton itself.

Our current District Governor Mary Ann Woodman from Fleetwood attended and presented Jean Smith with the prize for her winning creation.

A fun afternoon with friends and family with a lovely picnic spread in the beautiful gardens of Penny and Keith Smith all washed down with a glass or two of cold Pimms!
