22nd Annual Golf Day

Golf Trophy

This year’s annual Farnham Lions Golf Day, our 22nd, will once again be played at the splendid Hindhead Golf Club on August 30th 2018.

To date this event has raised £133,647 to support a wide range of charitable causes. This year’s recipient is the Stepping Stones School based in Hindhead. www.steppingstones.org.uk. Stepping Stones offers a unique environment for the student who finds the hectic pace of a mainstream school too challenging and yet would find the curriculum and peer group offered by a fully-fledged special school too narrow or too limiting.

We look forward to another great day of golf, always much enjoyed by the 84 competitors. We have an array of prizes to be won and some very special raffle and auction prizes, the proceeds of which all add to the total amount that we can donate to Stepping Stones.

Farnham in Bloom and Farnham Lions

Farnham Lions are delighted to have again sponsored the flower bed in Gostrey Meadows surrounding the war memorial. This year the bedding both commemorates the centenary of the end of World War 1, and also celebrates the centenary of Lions Clubs International and 100 years of service to their local communities around the world.

The Otter Wey Trail

After many months work, all of the fabulous 44 otters that formed the Otter Wey Trail for the 2017-18 Farnham Town Council Mayor's charity, were gathered together and all appeared at Gostrey Fayre on Farnham Carnival day - Saturday 30th June. There was amazing interest in them and  on Monday 9th July they were all taken to at Farnham Castle for a live auction hosted by the Castle, sponsored by Kidd Rapinet and conducted by Bonhams auctioneer Sholto Gilbertson. Whilst the results are being  finalised the total looks to be quite amazing - watch this pace for the final total that has been made for the 2017-18 Mayors charity. Its looking to be upwards of £25,000!

                         Lions Otter

We are delighted to announce the winner of the Otter Wey Trail competition. The winner is George K (full name withheld). The otter was presented at the live auction on Monday 9th July. Farnham's Town Clerk has advised us that the Otter Wey trail had more entries than any other Farnham Trail in our towns history. A tribute we think to the quality of the work and our community. 

We are also delighted to announce that the most popular community otter receiving more votes than any other at the Gostrey Fayre was Otter number 31, created and decorated by Folly Hill Infants School. This otter wins the title of "Best Community Otter."

The Farnham Lions Otter

We were delighted to introduce 'Lion L' celebrating not only our major work with and sponsorship of this fantastic community project, but also the 50 years of service that The Lions Club of Farnham has provided to our local community. Lion L was decorated and created by Georgina Ellis using the Lions logo colours of Blue and Gold. Thanks Georgina for a stunning piece of work.

Farnham Carnival 2018 -  one of the best ever.....

Farnham Lions and our friends in the community, The Hedgehogs, as well as a few independent contributors all worked incredibly hard to deliver the 2018 Farnham Carnival Parade and Fayre - and from the comments received one of the best ever. The stalls in the Fayre were sold out and the parade was excellent. As always we also desperately need volunteers to help to marshall the parade, so please if you enjoyed this year - get in touch and offer your support perhaps to help next year. Its just three hours of your time from 5pm - 8pm on Saturday 29th June 2019 and you get the best possible views of the parade.... If you would like to sign up to help please  just go to the Contact us page and let us know your details - we would be delighted to hear from you. For all details about carnival go to the separate Carnival website. We will be updating photos and letting you know the theme for next year very soon once we are recovered from the weekend. 

Farnham Beerex 2018 - wow what a night .... or three
