Dear fellow Lions and friends

Newquay Towan Blystra Lions Charter Night 

Saturday 15 October 2022 – 7pm for 7.30pm

Our Charter Night this year will be the first we have had since 2019, with 2020 and 2021 being put off by COVID. We chartered in October 2008 and, therefore, we will be celebrating the completion of our fourteenth year of service, of which we are very proud.

Our friends at Newquay’s Sandy Lodge Hotel have provided us with a splendid four course menu (see below – five courses if you include the tea/coffee) and The Qwest Party Band, who have headlined our Newquay Beer Festival every year since 2013 will be getting everyone up dancing. Tickets for the evening are £35 per head.

I intend our charter night to be a fun and friendly occasion where the interaction of our fellow Lions, friends and supporters is the most important aspect of the evening. Therefore you may be disappointed if you are looking forward to long speeches! Also, in order that all Lions and the friends who support us feel comfortable, there will be no formal dress code, so both black ties and casual attire will be mixing alongside each other.

It should be a great evening and you can also stay over in one of the newly refurbished rooms for £35 bed and breakfast per person. Again, great value.

If you would like to make a booking please just email me at with names, contact details and menu choices. 

It will be easier for us if you would make payment for the function via BACS please, using the reference of ‘your surname’ and the word ‘charter’. Please make payments to ‘Newquay Towan Blystra Lions Club’. Sort code: 40-34-30. A/c number 31490176.

We will happily do our best to assist with any requests to sit with friends and the Sandy Lodge will accommodate dietary requests including vegan and gluten-free needs. Just let me know if you need this when you reply and I will pass this information on to the hotel.

For accommodation at the Hotel, please contact the Sandy Lodge direct on 01637 872851 or email: There are a limited number of rooms available.

I look forward to hearing from you and, hopefully, seeing you on 15th October.

Best wishes
