Flying high at Farnborough Lions Charter celebrations

Farnborough Lions and friends pose for their Charter Anniversary picture at the FAST MuseumAll Lions clubs worldwide celebrate the formation of their local branch annually with a high profile social event.

Following this custom Farnborough Lions Lions celebrated their Club's 36th Charter Anniversary Dinner in June to mark the Lions work in the community since 1978. It was held in the Farnborough Air Sciences Trust (FAST) Museum in the pavilion housing the life sized replica of the 'Cody Flyer' the first aircraft in the UK to achieve sustained flight in the Great Britain in 1908. 

As we have worked in the heart of the community for many years we feel it is especially appropriate to celebrate our anniversary in such an iconic setting alongside this unique replica of British aviation history. The evening was especially interesting as the museum was also open for the Lions and their guests to tour before the anniversary dinner.
