MRVL are proud to support Swallownest Bowling Club by helping towards the purchase of junior bowls equipment.

The club were due to hold a bowling event this year involving two local schools which they will now be looking at holding next year. They are also hoping to provide some coaching for the youngsters. We hope to visit the club and see the junior bowlers when it is possible. The club welcomes people of all ages and abilities and is an active part of the local community.

Update from Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions President, John Rathbone

This year has been a strange year, the last few months have been like something we have never known before. We have only been able to have one meeting since March. 

This will be the first year we have had to cancel our Christmas Carol Concert. With everything still being unsure, we think it is for the best.

We are unsure at this time what will happen regarding the Christmas Sleighs. We are in the process of refurbishing both of them at this time. We may have to put up some kind of screen to protect everyone. This will be at the top of our list at the next meeting, we will be doing our best to get out and about with the sleighs if possible and safe to do so.

We will keep you all updated as and when we know what we can do. All of our Members and Helpers look forward to being out with the sleighs probably as much as everyone that comes out to see us!

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.

Activity Update from Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions Club

Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions Club – We Serve image

Our club has been as active as possible in the past few months which has been a difficult time for all. We have had a few of our members who have been shielding until the beginning of August, but keeping in touch via emails, messages, telephone and Zoom meetings helping to keep things going.

We have recently had a small, outdoor, socially distancing meeting to discuss various matters arising since March when we last met as a full group. Some of our members have been out and about since March helping with meal deliveries for an action group and shopping, collecting prescriptions, etc in Maltby and Dinnington for vulnerable people and those unable to get out.

One of our lady members was making scrubs for the NHS at the beginning of lockdown and our club donated to this project. We have helped various individual people and donated to and helped Action groups and Food Banks in Maltby and Dinnington.

We discussed our Santa Christmas Sleighs at the meeting and we are currently organising refurbishment of both sleighs, North and South sides, in the hope that we will be able to get out with them in some way during the Christmas period. This of course is not a certainty, but we will do our best to organise something as so many people look forward to this, but we will have to adhere to government guidelines for everyone’s safety.

We will hopefully be able to have another socially distanced meeting soon when we can invite prospective new members, again we will have to adhere to guidelines in these uncertain times. Meanwhile we are continuing with our ongoing work in the community.

Stay safe everyone, Lynn Reaney, on behalf of MRVL.

Helping out a local lass

​Maltby Rother Valley Lions are delighted to support a lovely local lass with a freewheel attachment and folding adaptor to enable her to take her wheelchair on difficult paths and on the beach for holidays. This will greatly improve her daily life and enable her to experience much more independence. Our reward is the lovely smile on her face :-).
