GarlandsGarlands were presented to DG Alan and Anne by Lions Kris and John Smith from Salisbury Lions Club.


The evening was arranged by Sergeant-at-Arms Lion Dave Ebsworth who did a splendid job as Master of Ceremonies. Grace was read by 2nd Vice Lion Peter Burnett and the Loyal Toast was given by Lion Bryan Smith, president of Salisbury Lions Club.

The toast to Lions International was given by the outgoing DG Lion Mike Hendy who expertly steered the District through 2014-15. Mike sprung a surprise on his wife, PDG Lion Brigid Hendy by presenting her with a very well deserved Melvin Jones Fellowship Award on behalf of Bracknell and Burnham Clubs and 'himself' for all that she has done for the community and the Lions movement.

The Lions Clubs International Purposes were read by 1st Vice Lion David Taylor prior to the installation of DG Alan.

The Top TableThe raffle prizes ranged from a rocking horse to a case of wine and was enjoyed by all and then followed by dancing to Mustang Sally Disco run by Lion Rob Clarke.

Best wishes to DG Alan and Anne for a great year leading our District.

District Convention 2015

District Governor Mike Hendy and Lion BrigidThe Golden Convention (50th) on the 21st of March in sunny Bournemouth was a huge success!  

The weekend began in fine style with the opening flag ceremony outside the Wessex Hotel on Friday (20th) afternoon. 

Host Night was themed a day at the seaside with many Lions and partners joining in the fancy dress fun.

On Saturday, the morning session included nominations for next year's District Governor, 1st Vice District Governor and 2nd Vice District Governor with the result that Lion Alan Chapman of Warminster Lions Club will be DG for 2015/16. Resolutions were proposed, reports considered and debated and special awards presented including the Young Ambassador Award given to Jenna Volpert for her outstanding achievements in community service work in Jersey. 

Listen to Mr Baxter-Smith's keynote speech about prostate cancer screening.

There were 8 break-out workshops this year and a new innovation saw 6 clubs give informal 5 minute talks about The giant cake to celebrate 50 years of Lions in the South of Englandsuccessful projects in their local areas.

The Saturday evening Banquet and Ball was a celebration of 50 years of District 105D - we even had a giant cake!
