Woolmer Forest Lions donated 500 to replace the windows at the 1st Headley Scout Group buiding in March. The windows were installed by S and C Windows

Lara Balchin-Murray - Scout Helper for the Scouts and Explores said:

"We could not have done this without the help of the Woolmer Forest Lions - its been a godsend. The new windows keep the building safe and secure."

CLEAN UP FOR THE QUEEN. 90th Birthday Celebrations.

Broxhead Common - May 21 2016  

Woolmer Forest Lions are proud to help improve our community with a litter pick at Broxhead Common today.

A number of the club led by Vic Machin helped clear up the litter - "What people throw away is truly staggering", said one Lion.

Below are the Club Members who undertook the first shift

We received a nice comment from Peter E on the Streetlife website for Bordon regarding our clean-up efforts.

We were delighted to see our hard work being appreciated, and other people have echoed these comments.

We collected 19 bags of unwanted litter / bottles / cans etc and Vic Machin would like to thank the MOD for all their help and support, as well as the club members who took part.
