 A PSA test is a simple blood test that can detect early signs of prostate disease and help save lives before the disease becomes too advanced.
Prostate cancer charities suggest that all men over 40 have a PSA test and ideally repeat the test yearly. We have attached a leaflet expaining about prostate cancer screening and the PSA test which can be downloaded by clicking on the link below:
(Thanks to the Tackle and CHAPS charities for the use of their leaflet)

The test is free but a donation towards the cost of each test would be gratefully received


Two defibrillators for Marston Green

There are now two new defibrillators in Marston Green thanks to the Lions and to the support of the One Stop carrier bag fund..

One defibrilator is located on the outside of the Parish Hall and the other on the outside of the One Stop shop opposite the station.

Both are automatic and only require the user to stick to pads onto the patient. Access is via a 999 call when the ambulance service will provide the cabinet code and also help,the user to operate it.






A Race Night with a Difference in aid of the Meriden Adventure Playground Association

On Friday 11th May 2018 we held a race night at the Banbury Club, Bosworth Drive, Chelmsley Wood

Although attendance was not as high as we hoped the assembled punters still helped us raise over £600.

​Proceeds will go to the Meriden Adventure Playground Association (MAPA). Take a look at what they do at




A wheelchair ramp for Marston Green Tennis Club

We recently reponded to a request for help from Marston Green Tennis Club who wanted to provide disabled access to their clubhouse. We happily provided a portable ramp for them to use.











Pop-up Charity Shop a success

Thanks to the generous loan of a shop unit by Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre, we held a pop-up charity shop on 1 and 2 September. This gave us a great opportunity to meet the public in Chelmsley Wood as well as providing them with some real bargains. Hopefully we'll be doing it again in November providing some Christmas shopping opportunities.










Lions provide MAPA with computer equipment

The Meriden Adventure Playground Association (MAPA) runs a free playground for children aged 7 and above allowing adventure play in a safe environment. We recently donated £1,300 to them to provide a laptop, printer and internet for two years. You can find out more about MAPA at

About us

Marston Green & District Lions Club was formed in 1977 and originally covered the whole of North Solihull. It began with 25 members who were mainly residents in the village and who included doctors and staff from the two hospitals, local businessmen, the deputy Mayor of Solihull and two local councillors.

For many years the club held their meetings at the maternity hospital and this is how the stork came to feature on the clubs banner and badge.
Today the club is still going strong and meets every 2nd and 4th Wednesday at the Banbury Social Club.

 If you would like to come to one of our meetings please email us at
