Mrs Morris drew the Maltby Lions’ Advent Tree raffle today during PRIDE assembly. Thank you to everyone for your support, we managed to raise nearly £200 which is amazing! All of this money will go back in to the local community through the work of Maltby Lions. I am pleased to announce that the winners were Miss Wilsher and Mr Jones who have won the advent tree on behalf of the year 4 class - one egg will be earned each day by the class! 😁

Don’t forget that we always need help from members of the local community. Could you become a local Lion? Would you like to be part of a very special group of people who put back into their local community? Plus have lots and lots of fun in the process!

If the answer is yes then what are you waiting for? We meet every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month – please call us on 07585 657563 or message us.

How Maltby Rother Valley Lions are bringing a little Christmas joy to our communities

2020 has been a very challenging year for us all, but that doesn’t stop the well needed Lion’s charity work.

Our two sleighs are running, but not stopping this year for photos and everyone is helping by keeping to social distancing rules.

We are visiting schools where classes are being brought out into the playground in their bubbles at a safe distance and we are standing outside supermarkets again with safe distancing.

The lovely lady in the picture is 95 years old and she is watching Santa live on FaceTime.

A few ways in which we can bring the Christmas spirit to the community safely in these uncertain times.

Lions gazebo shelters Maltby Miners Memorial volunteers from the heat

Maltby Miners Memorial Community Group are doing a fantastic job building a memorial displaying engraved name tiles for ex employees of Maltby Colliery. Last week the weather forecast was not good and a message was put on the groups Facebook site asking for the loan of a gazebo.

The Lions offered to lend them ours and Lions John and Dom took it to site. The day turned out to be a very hot one and our gazebo gave some much needed shade to the volunteers working on the memorial.

We all look forward to seeing the finished memorial and learning about the history of Maltby colliery when it is officially opened.
