Blackmore Vale Cheese
This was presented to the Club, which has contributed most to encourage and support Youth Exchange either by hosting or sponsoring.
In January 2012 Blackmore Vale Lions Club decided to discontinue presenting "The Cheese" after Convention 2012. This was because the number of clubs participating had fallen dramatically. Originally it was to be awarded when 10 or more clubs took part in Youth Exchange. It was also originally only intended to run for 5 years!
Originally a whole cheese was presented to the winning club but more recently this has been a selection of goodies including some Dorset Blue Vinny which is only made at Sturminster Newton.
The winner of the 2011-2012 Competition was the Lions Club of NEW MILTON
The winner of the 2010 -2011 Competition was the Lions Club of NEW MILTON
