Carnival 2014 Presentations
Bens Den & The Survivors Of Bereavement by Suicide
The two charities who were the chosen beneficiaries attended our Charter Dinner on he 20th September
to be presented with a cheque each for £2000.00.
A photograph of the presentation is on the gallery page.
Following our appeal for new members we held a Membership evening on the 22nd July, and although the response on the evening was disappointing we had a few people who could not attend but made contact afterwards with a view to joining the club.
Their general comment was that they did not realise how much we do for the local and wider communities.
The increase in numbers will ensure that the Carnival is guaranteed to go ahead next year.

The 2014 ILKESTON LIONS CARNIVAL
'was a resounding success'
This has been the response we have received from the stallholders, and the people that took part in the arena events.
but most of all we have had quite a few generous comments from you the public. The people we work so hard for to give you an enjoyable day.
THANKS FOR THAT!
The Carnival Queen Emmaleigh Syson
who lives in Kirk Hallam, led the parade and spent the afternoon walking around the carnival ground.
The weather was on our side with a very pleasant day. the floats arrived on site on time and the judging proved to be very difficult, but in the end
the SALVATION ARMY won the prize of best float. The arena events all went down well with a full afternoon and the TUG O' WAR was won by WEST TRANSPORT.
Presentations to Bens Den and Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide the joint beneficiaries will be awarded in the not too distant future.
Next Years Carnival will take place on Saturday 13th June 2015
