This year is the 30th anniversary of the formation of Thornbury Lions Club.  During this time the Club has become an integral part of the community by supporting a large number of local projects.  To celebrate our anniversary we are focussing on youth, and for our first major event we invited local schools to a presentation evening at the Cossham Hall. 

The Club gave a donation of £500 to each of thirteen schools to be used for the purchase of books and/or sports equipment. Light refreshments were served and the evening ended with a superb display of folk music by the Wriggle Jigglers, a local band of enthusiastic young musicians.   

They are members of three families  from Thornbury and Rockhampton who have performed at folk festivals nationwide and they gave a rousing climax to a very successful evening.
