Lions 105SC 1st Convention

Swindon - Saturday 21st March 2020 - CANCELLED

In light of the government guidelines on large gatherings and the fact that a large number of our fellow lions could be at risk, it is with a heavy heart that the Cabinet have taken the decision to cancel the District Convention. It is a sad day especially as this was our inaugural convention but we felt it was our duty first and foremost to keep our members safe.

The Convention Chair David Firth has done a superb job of negotiating with the hotel to minimise the financial burden to both the District and individual members.

With the agreement of 1VDG Steve Petty and the rest of the Cabinet we have taken the decision to hold the District Convention on 19-21 March 2021 at the same venue "The Hilton DoubleTree Swindon". For our commitment to holding the convention next year, they have agreed to not charge for the social events and to be generous with the fees for the room bookings.

In the absence of a full Convention, we will be asking all Clubs to vote on the Nominations and Resolutions in the near future; details on how this be conducted will be released shortly.

PS MD have now postponed MD Convention Birmingham

Advice from MD

If your club is planning to hold any public events between now and 31st of May 2020, we would strongly suggest that you consider postponing them until later into the Summer. Public Gatherings are an area of concern for health officials as COVID-19 is a respiratory virus and transmitted through the air. This will help to protect the communities we engage with and will be seen as a proactive and responsible step by the public. 

Your Club, Your Way means that you need to decide what is best for your club members, if you have a proportion of your club who are in the high risk categories (Those over the age of 70, Those with underlying medical conditions) it would be prudent to consider cancelling your March, April and May face to face Business Meetings.
