Charter Weekend


Every year Shirley Lions in common with all other Lions Clubs celebrates the anniversary of the formation of the Club. The celebration is known as a "Charter" event as it marks the date of the granting of the Charter document to the Club upon its formation. To celebrate "Charter 2017" Lion President Jaap de Jonge and over 60 friends and fellow Lions descended on the Royal Hotel in Weston Super Mare for a long weekend. As well Midlands clubs supporting the event by travelling down to Weston we were joined by Weston Super Mare and Clevedon Lions. Shirley Lions are well known for providing their own entertainment at Lions functions and this year was no different as the Shirley Lions Choir took centre stage with their own versions of a couple of songs on a cheese theme.

This year's Charter will take place on Saturday 21st April 2018 at the Regency Hotel in Shirley. Further details will appear here shortly but Lion President Jeremy looks forward to meeting friends old and new at an event where Shirley Lions are famous for providing their own brand of wacky entertainment.
