Friday 19 October 2018: Quiz Night

Wokingham Cricket Club provide us with a venue for our club meetings so it was fitting the we used their club house for a Quiz Night.  We had 13 tables, each with up to eight team members who competed to answer challenging questions posed by the quizmaster, Ian Grange.

Saturday 27 October: Wokingham Armistice Day centenary commemoration

Wokingham Town Council organised a number of events to commemorate the centenary of the end of the first world war.  Several of these events took place in the town centre on Saturday 27 October.  Wokingham Lions manned a tea and cake stall in the town hall, with all proceeds going to the Poppy Appeal.

Saturday 3 November: Wokingham Charity Fireworks Spectacular

This year’s Wokingham Charity Fireworks Spectacular was held on 3 November at Cantley Fields.  Wokingham Lions organises this event in conjunction with four other local service clubs, and it raises substantial amount for local good causes.  Full details at www.wokingham-fireworks.co.uk

Unfortunately the display had to be cancelled due to a gas leak in the road alongside Cantley Field.  The Fire Service evacuated the area and closed it to traffic.  The event was instead held the following day (Sunday), but there was no torchlight procession.  The fun will start at 5:00pm when the funfair and food stalls open.  The fireworks will begin promptly at 6:30pm so please ensure you get there early.  There is no parking near the field, so please use the town centre car parks and walk to the field.

As you may imagine, this change will have some impact on our finances but we hope that we will still be able to make significant contributions to the charities being supported by the event.

We apologise for the change, but trust you will understand that is is due to circumstances beyond our control.  All tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled event.  If you are unable to attend and want a refund please contact sales@wokingham-fireworks.co.uk

We are a very friendly club, with members from Wokingham and the surrounding area. We work hard to support the local community and raise funds for local charities, and have fun doing it!
New members are very welcome, so if you would like to be part of it, please contact ustwitter
