At our first Lions on the Green in 2021, hundreds of people enjoyed the sunshine and came along and see a huge display of about 100 classic cars along with entertainment, food, artizan and charity stalls, all on the Large Green by Devizes School entrance.

This is what we did:

Lions on the Green
Sunday 13th June 10:00am to 4:00pm

On June 13th, Devizes Lions held a brand new fund raising event: Lions on the Green.

This was for all the family as well as anyone with an interest in Classic Cars.  On the day there were about 100 classic cars to admire as well as about 40 craft, artisan and charity stalls.  And the weather was fantastic! 

And it raised in excess of £4,760!  A magnificent result that will all be used to support worthwhile causes primarily in and around Devizes. Thank you all for your support.

Here is a message from our Presdident, Lion Jerry King:

Thanks from the Lions for the comments and pictures posted on Facebook. You have it spot on. It was fantastic to create an event that would let local people get out for a change and enjoy something new. Thanks go to the Lions members and friends that made it happen (and especially Lion Roger Stratton who dreamed the whole thing up in the depths of lockdown!), to TV and film stars Clive Mantle and his wife Carla Mendoca who opened the show, to our sponsors who made much possible, to the car owners and stallholders, and especially the visitors who uninvited gave to Lions funds so we can continue our charitable work locally. Thank you one and all. Jerry King, Devizes Lions Club President 2020-2021.

Here are just a few of the pictures we took during the event:

Fantastic!

And this is some of the feedback we've received:

"I just wanted to thank you and the team for such a fantastic event yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed it, met so many lovely people and also raised £100 for Springboard Nursery in Chippenham (Nursery for children with additional needs). 

From the very beginning it welcoming and organised, the plots were great and very well thought out and again the marshals couldn't have been more helpful on exiting. We certainly needed something like this and what a great start to enjoying our community now the restrictions are lessening.  

Please can you pass on my thanks, looking forward to next year 🙂

Anna (Little Feather Art)"

"Just a very quick thank you for allowing the Museum space on the Green.  It was a fantastic day, helped by the weather, and we were able to see a lot of ‘real’ people again.

The amount of time that all of you must have put into organising and running the even must have been phenomenal.  Thank you so much for doing it.  

Doug Roseaman (Wiltshire Museum)"

"Well done Roger for all your organising- it was a great day all round and people really needed this to bring a little normality back into their  lives.  The powers that be certainly brought us the best weather and I hope all the Lions could get back on track with their fund raising.
A good day out 
Love Su x"

"Hello Roger

Great to put a face to a name today.

What a marvellous job you and your team did, especially considering, as you said, you haven't organised a car show previously.
Please pass on our thanks, on behalf of my "Wiltshire Jaguar owners", to everyone one involved for a most enjoyable day out.

Roll on next year.

Regards
Don Westcott  Chairman Wiltshire Region JEC"
