New members are essential to any organisation. They bring new ideas, new
interest and new opportunities for friendship as well as helping to share the
work and enable clubs to maintain and increase their activities.
If you think joining a Lions Club might be for you, contact your local club
to find out more. If you like what you see and find that you fit in with the way
the club works, you will be invited to join.
Lions Clubs International
The International Association of Lions Clubs is non sectarian and non
political. When it was formed, it was a male organisation but, since 1987,
membership has also been open to ladies. The principle that membership is by
invitation applies to all.
Many clubs now have mixed membership, some from when they started, others
through natural evolution; other clubs have preferred to retain their existing
character and remain with an all male membership for the time being.
The Lions Club of Billericay was formed in 1979 as a male club and membership
has remained male since. Billericay sponsored a new club in Wickford which
is a mixed club and recently merged with Basildon. South Woodham Ferrers is another nearby mixed club. Chelmsford and Brentwood have remained all male clubs although Chelmsford has an
associated Lioness club.
