About Crofton Lions
- CROFTON LIONS IS A LOCAL CLUB
- MADE UP OF LOCAL PEOPLE
- BACKED BY AN INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATION!
To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organisation with 1.3 million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in 205 countries. Lions are men and women who volunteer their time for humanitarian causes.
Founded in Chicago in 1917 by Melvin Jones, the organisation spread into Canada and then to Europe. The first Club opened in the U.K. in 1950. There are now more than 900 clubs in Britain, one of which is the Crofton Lions Club formed in the year 2000. Our motto is "We Serve"
Crofton Lions participate national and international projects but we are primarily concerned with serving the local community of Crofton which is made up of Stubbington, HillHead and Peel Common.
Crofton Lions Club Bannerette Design
Running vertically through the title "Crofton Lions Club" is the number ‘2000' commemorating our formation on 1st December 2000.
The focal point of Stubbington is its War Memorial in the centre of the village green. This forms the central part of our design. Beneath it, representing the village of Hill Head are the ‘Crofton Cliffs' with its distinctive Scots Pines.
Stubbington and Hill Head together with an area known as Peel Common collectively form the Hampshire County Ward of "CROFTON". From the Crofton Cliffs we look out across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. Sailing, which is a major activity in Crofton, has been represented by including a ship on the Solent. This also signifies our links with our Mother Club, The Lions Club of Fareham, and with the Borough as the ‘Galleon' forms part of the Coat of Arms for the Fareham Borough Council.
We are proud of what we have achieved since our formation in 2000 and with your help and support we will continue to thrive.
