Lions International has been serving all around the world for 100 years, as of the 7th of June 2017, Alnwick Lions club was formed in 1975 and currently has 26 members as part of our centenary celebrations we wanted to find a project that encompassed the Lions ethos of improving our community, we also wanted a project that would leave a mark for the next 100 years, so, to that end Alnwick Lions Club will be working with the children, parents and staff of Swansfield Park School to adopt the public walkway that runs from the entrance to Swansfield Park School, on the Avenue, from there to the railings on Swansfield Park Road , the aim of this Project is to tidy the area up by making good the walkway outside the school,keeping it clear of leafs and mud that runs on to the path and makes the area rather dangerous in the Autumn and Winter month for the young children and their parents to walk on.
Alnwick Lions Club want to work with the pupils, parents,staff and other local organisations to make this area safer for the children and the wider community by improving the retaining wall and planting some new flowers,bushes and to provide more seats.
We are sure that by working together with all interested parties we can raise the funds needed to make this area a safer and pleasant area for the pupils, parents and staff of Swansfield Park School as well as the local community.
Head Teacher Jenny Smith writes
" We are excited about working with the Alnwick Lions to improve the area around our school for the benefit of the wider community. Our children have often voiced their concern about the state of The Cut and we all welcome the opportunity to work on this project We are looking forward to rolling up our selves and getting stuck into this great community project!"
