Members of Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions were happy to support Aston Carnival yesterday. A great day was had by all and we had several visitors to our Tombola stall and new Wheel of Fortune, made by our President Dave Parker. Cllr Jenny Andrews, Lord Mayor of Rotherham and Cllr Jenny Mallinder, Lady Mayoress paid us a visit along with a member of Dinnington Brass Band and Zubaidah Belly Dancers and of course everyone who donated to MRVL at our stall and at our Wheel of Fortune. Thank you for your continued support. Lion Pat distributed numerous “Message in a bottles” which we are happy to supply to the community for assistance in emergencies.
Yes, it’s that time of year again, when we start to get excited about Aston Carnival which has been running since 2005.
This years Carnival will again take place on the first Saturday in August and features a parade and the crowning of our Carnival Queen 2019. The parade starts at 11am at Swallownest J&I School and heads to Lodge Lane Recreation.
Activities will include: carnival rides, games, stalls, delicious food and drinks, dancers and much, much more. For further information please visit Aston Carnival’s website >
Some of our members attended Maltby Progressive Club’s Summer Fair yesterday with our Tombola stall. We had a good afternoon and some lovely prizes were won.
We also gave away a lot of “Message in a bottle” kits, which are provided by the Lions. The bottle containing essential information for emergency services is kept in your fridge. In the event of an accident or incident within your home, the first emergency service on the scene will be alerted to the bottle by a label which is placed on your fridge door.
Contact us if you would like one of these bottles.
It could save your life!
St. Mary’s School, Maltby are so pleased with their purpose built sandpit donated by Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions. We are happy to support the school and it looks like the children are happy with their sandpit too!
