District Convention 2019

District 105SC Extraordinary Convention

[Richard Keeley]

At the end of September members of over 40 Lions Clubs throughout the south of England met up at the Stones Hotel near Salisbury to discuss arrangements for the smooth transition to the new Lions District 105SC.

All Lions Clubs Districts throughout the British Isles are being reorganised to meet Lions Clubs International membership criteria. These district changes will take effect from July 2019.

The District Governor Team for the new District 105SC
[Richard Keeley]

To start these changes in the South Central segment of England, Lions delegates voted in the new district constitution, subscription details and elected the new District Governor Team for 2019/2020.

Voted in unanimously as the forthcoming District Governor of District 105SC was Jarvis MacDonald from Westbury Lions Club. Jarvis has served as President of Westbury Lions Club, Zone Chairman and 2nd Vice District Governor of Lions District 105D.

Voted in as 1st Vice District Governor was Steve Petty of Calne Lions Club. Steve has served in a number of roles in his club as well as bringing the wealth of his experience as a past District Governor of District 105W.

The role of Second Vice District Governor was taken up by Brian Donovan of Abingdon Lions Club. Brian is currently Club Secretary of Abingdon Lions and Zone Chairman.

These three enthusiastic and committed Lions will lead the new District 105SC in it's first year and the Lions of the current District 105D look forward to supporting them.

MD Peace Poster winner 2017-18

MD105 Peace Poster Competition 2017 winner
MD105 Peace Poster Competition 2017 winner

The winner of this year's MD Peace Poster competition was not from our District as previously displayed here. The winning entry was created by Mia Reed aged 13, sponsored by Clacton-on-Sea Lions Club in District 105E. Mia's poster was chosen as a merit award winner in the 30th Annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest.
Our apologies for the earlier misleading item.


The International Board has now approved the re-districting as agreed at the MD Convention in Blackpool. Both the Council of Governors and our Cabinet will, as soon as possible, be working on the logistics of making the transition. Some Lions have asked if they can make contact with the Clubs near them who will be joining us in District SC in July 2019. At the moment please do not do that as we need to work out the "big picture" before getting down to individual Clubs.
