Christchurch Ferrymead

First of a Kind.

We ran our first ever garage sale on Saturday 27th October, in aid of local diabetes charities as part of the International Lions initiative. Considering we are New to the game, we were pleased to have raised $1000 for the cause.




Another new member joins into Ferrymead Lions Club. Welcome to Allan Truscott.


Wow! What a Night! Change-Over Meeting.

The presentation of our annual Iris Mead Award to Ngaio Tuari for here selfless efforts in the community set the celebratory mood for the evening. We were entertained by one of our members, Neville Barrie, on guitar with a few of his inimitable jokes! Another member of the public, Simon Reed, was recognised for his unstinting service supplying peastraw for our funfdraisng sales - maybe 20,000 bales over the years!

Lady Members recruited after 41 years of all male dominance...........Yes, in this historic event, our first 3 lady members were inducted into the club and fourth lady member transfered from another Lions club.Truly a night to remember.

Past District Governor Dick Johns presided over the inductions, drawing on his tractor analogy for the functions of each member of the board. Very entertaining, again with a liberal sprinkling of humour.



          In the News?..?................

Is this a record? 300 sausage sizzles in 2 hours! Sunday 18th March at Scarborough Park. The Lions sizzler team worked flat out to satisfy the appetites of competitors and also some spectators at this highly successful tri/duathlon event.
