Meetings

Seaton and District Lions are members of the world’s largest and most active service club organisation.

There are around 18,000 members in the British isles and Ireland in over 900 Lions Clubs.

Seaton and District Lions are a group of service-minded men and women who are doing local volunteer work to support our community.

We volunteer our time and skills to provide selfless, effective, community service to answer the needs that challenge our local communities.

Besides actively helping in the community by giving our time we raise funds to support local people and organisations when they need it most.

Among our fund-raising activities we hold craft fairs and jumble sales; we run book and bric a brac stalls at street fairs during the year including the Seaton Lions June Street Fayre and later on at the Seaton Carnival market.

 

Every Christmas we bring Santa's sleigh around the streets of Seaton and the surrounding villages.

We host a popular cabaret night near Christmas and put on other shows at the Gateway, a Welsh Male Voice Choir and Sidmouth Town Band and each December, we host a Christmas lunch for our Senior Citizens.

We support local schools, playgroups and youth associations and have started to work with the Gateway Youth as part of the Lions Young Leaders in Service Awards.

Welcoming Young Leaders in Seaton.

Seatons Voice, as part of their weekly youth group held at the Gateway, are taking part in the Young Leaders in Service Awards scheme, which is sponsored by the local branch of Lions Clubs International, the Seaton and District Lions Club.

Welcoming  Seaton Young Leaders in Service.
 

This worldwide volunteer award scheme recognises the work young people carry out in their local communities. The youngsters will become involved in various projects such as, helping the elderly, helping other children (e.g. Guides, Scouts, Brownies, Beavers or Cubs), helping parents or other family members, protecting the environment, joining in with community events and fund raising for local charities.

 

During the year the Seaton Young Leaders will not only become involved in their community but also experience the rewards of volunteer service.

In recognition for completing 12 months of volunteer service in their local community, each will receive a certificate and letter of thanks and recommendation from the Lions Clubs International President, Lion Wayne Madden and be presented with one of the two awards sponsored by Lions Clubs International.

There are two award levels to achieve during the twelve month period:
The Silver Seal Award for young people who complete 50 hours of volunteer service and the Gold Seal Award for those who complete 100 hours of volunteer service.

At the launch of the Seaton Young Leaders in Service Award Scheme at the Gateway in Seaton Town Hall, they were welcomed to the Awards Scheme by Lion Neil Rutter.  President of the Seaton and District Lions Club sponsoring the awards and were briefed by Carol Manley from Seaton’s Voice, the organisers of the scheme, about how the scheme will operate.

Each young person received a welcome pack with information about the scheme and log sheets to record their service activities and will be presented with a with a official Lions Club International pin badge to show they are taking part.
A presentation evening will be held next year in front of an invited audience to celebrate and reward this first group of Seaton Young Leaders achievements.
