Lions clubs are divided into Districts, Regions and Zones (Chelmsford is in Zone B of Region 2 in District 105CE) and nationally (although individual clubs operate autonomously, with decisions voted upon by members of that club).
The clubs are non-political and non-sectarian. Lions International was founded in Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1917 by insurance agent Melvin Jones and was dedicated to the idea that the men and women who live in a community are in the best position to know who needs help and why.
Chelmsford Club was formed in 1969 and celebrates its anniversary or ‘Charter' in November. We always welcome new members to our active and friendly club.
The aim of our club is to help local causes and community while having fun. As well as a wide social calendar we regularly help out at community events wherever there is a need for extra help (see Gallery pictures).
We meet on the second Wednesday each month at our hall in Springfield Road and every fourth Wednesday for a social night (see Gallery pictures) to see just some of what we get up to).
We always welcome new members to our friendly, active club. Check out the picture galleries via our social/charities pages to see what we get up to or click on the Facebook link. For more information refer to the Contact Us page.
