Another successful Lions' Swanmore Fete!

Falconry#Hundreds of Swanmore residents turned out in glorious summer sunshine to enjoy the fun and entertainment at this year’s Fete organised by the Meon Valley Lions.   

As well as some wonderful music from local bands including the Soberton Strummers, Contraband and the Swanmore College of Technology Jazz Band, there were displays from Roynon School of Dance and Haven Falconry, who had travelled from the Isle of Wight to put on an amazing bird-of-prey flying display.   Despite stiff competition from the England v Belgium World Cup match, Wimbledon plus International Cricket on television, attendance was very good again this year with an estimated 1,500 people enjoying the event.   Including income from gates receipts, sponsorship, advertising and a very successful raffle, the Lions expect the final total raised from the fete to be around £5,000, all of which will be channeled into their charitable activities.    

Club President Sheila Campbell said, “We’ve organised the Swanmore Fete for many years now as part of our commitment to community involvement in the Meon Valley, so it’s great that the villagers respond so generously and support our charitable work.”
