2021 Festive Walk

The 28th Annual Knowle and Dorridge Lions Club Festive Walk took place on 28th December 2021 from Dorridge Village Hall after an enforced Covid break last year. The starting point and routes had to be changed as the National Trust at Baddesley Clinton were unable to support the local community event this year.

Nearly one thousand adults, children and four legged friends from all around Solihull and beyond braved damp conditions and completed the 3 or 6 mile routes. The refreshment stop at the Dorridge Cricket Club was well frequented and at the end of the day there were many tired but happy faces.


Thanks to all the walkers, all the volunteers, Dorridge Village Hall, Ye Olde Knowle Bowling Club, Solihull Jamboree Scouts and Dorridge Cricket Club.


Thanks to everyone who made a donation as the money raised (about £3,000), for this year only, will be going into our Charity Account which will help us to support many smaller, local initiatives.


Congratulations to Evie and Samuel for being drawn as one of our Festive Safari prize winners this year. The children were delighted to have won as they especially like the delicious milkshakes that the Dark Horse makes. Evie and Samuel have taken part in all of our previous Safari's and Hunts and said that they are looking forward to tackling our Easter Egg Hunt over the Easter Holidays.

A special thank you from Knowle and Dorridge Lions to Megan, who presented the voucher, and all at the Dark Horse Espresso in Bentley Heath for their generous support in providing the prize.


"It was fabulous. Thank you so much. See you next year " Dawn Woolven


"We had a lovely walk but the mud was a little too much for our smallest walker in the end" Wendy Jackson


"We had a great time, thank you to all involved" Victoria Calbreath

2021 Seniors Tea Party


On Saturday 30th October, the K&D Lions held their first Seniors Tea Party for 3 years at the Knowle British Legion.


There were 70 attendees who all had a really nice time. It was the first social engagement for some in many months.


A big thank you for the entertainers, Sisters of Song for a great show and for Sue at the Royal British Legion (Knowle) for the great food and support for the event.


'"The residents from Arden Grange have asked me to thank you

for the wonderful Tea Party last Saturday. We all enjoyed every moment.

One of our ladies was a lucky raffle winner too. We loved the Facebook pictures.'"

2021 B93 Charity Ball

The inaugural B93 Ball was attended by 85 local residents on the 9th of October 2021. All attendees had a great time and we also raised nearly £1700 for local causes.

The food was excellent. The DJ captured the party spirit all night. I have no idea how the table magician did those tricks. And the photo booth was hilarious!

The K&D Lions would like to thank all the attendees, the Forest of Arden Hotel plus the 20 local business that contributed raffle prizes.

2021 Virtual Wine Tasting Evening

All who took part thoroughly enjoyed being guided through the tasting notes by a sommelier from Loki Wines for the 3 quality wines that featured in our Virtual Wine Tasting Event in early April. In addition to proving to be a great virtual social event, with the funds raised, we were able to make a donation of £200 for the Knowle Mind Garden Project.




2021 Easter Egg Hunt

The Easter break saw 45 cunningly concealed Easter Egg posters, each with the name of a different chocolate, appearing on properties in Knowle, Dorridge and Bentley Heath. The Easter Egg Hunt was again a great hit, with many local families enjoying an excuse to get out and about in the fresh air. Thanks to the generosity of Hunt participants and our local shops, who donated the prizes, the Hunt raised £500 for Age UK.

2021 Scavenger Hunt

Over the February half term parents and children were once again out and about embarking on two Scavenger Hunts around our villages. Searching for interesting features of buildings and landmarks hiding in plain sight proved to be a fun activity for families to do together and provided a welcome new reason to go for a walk in the local neighbourhood.

Christmas 2020 Lions Safari

Over the Christmas Holidays we ran a Festive Safari which involved finding ‘escaped’ Lions hiding out in trees, gardens and shop windows around B93. We joined forces with the Parent Teacher Associations of our four local primary schools, St. George and St. Teresa, Bentley Heath, Dorridge and Knowle. The schools and their PTA’s provided great support in publicising the Festive Safari to their families. As a result we received many, many correct entries. All correct answers were entered into our prize draw and a winner was chosen from each of the four schools. As a result of the generosity of participants we were able to donate £500 to each of the four schools.
