Ruislip Lions enjoyed their annual Christmas Party at Woodford Hall 1st/3rd Ruislip Scout Hut. This year the main dish was piping hot Lasagna which made a great change from the traditional menu although the soup, plentiful sweets and cheese and biscuits were welcome as well. Brains were tested by Quiz games.
Ruislip Lions took part in the 2017 Ickenham Fest on a very cold night selling Santa Hats & a Wild Cat tombola game. Lions Peter and Bob seen with a festive hat and a cute cub.
The weather was very cold on Pinner Pantomime Evening which took place on Thursday 30th November. However that did not deter a lot of young people from taking part in “The William Tell” crossbow competition, with the overall winner on the night, taking home a complete set including a Bow, Darts and a target. The money raised will be used to help Lions charities both locally and internationally.
Bishop Winnington Ingram Primary School pupils continued their tradition of taking part in an annual Ruislip Lions Peace poster competition. Ruislip Manor library have always been most welcoming and this gives the young people a chance of having their entries seen by a much larger audience than normal.

The Leader of Hillingdon Council Cllr Ray Puddifoot with local MP Boris Johnson view the the Bagatelle table top game, which the club took to the library. They are seen here with the President of the club Phyllis and Chair of Services committee Fred. This turned out to be a very popular game with young people who enjoyed the hands on game as opposed to their normal virtual experience with phones and tablets. Children and their parents from Newnham and Lady Banks Schools loved the non-techno bagatelle, “once you start on this game you don’t want to stop, you just want to keep raising your score” was the comment from one pupil, and it helps with mental arithmetic – this could be a Christmas stocking winner………. and not a mobile phone in site!!
Sue and David members of the club with other Lions helped RSBC with their charity collection.
