Dursley Lionesses

I have been married to husband Tim for 40 years and have two adult sons. I am MD of an engraving company, (www.classyglass.co.uk), started with the help of the Government Enterprise Allowance Scheme 34 years ago and currently employing five people.

Dursley Lioness Club is one of only ten such clubs left in the Country. Sponsored by our Dursley Lions for the last 35 years, we work alongside them to provide service and fundraising in the community. A member since 2004, I have held many positions at club, district and national level; Club President, 105W District Chairman, MD105 Lioness Treasurer, MD105 Nominations and Resolutions, MD105 Competitions Officer and MD105 Website/IT Officer.

I have attended every MD105 Lioness Conference since I joined, where my loud voice has been utilised as Sergeant at Arms on several occasions! I thoroughly enjoy getting together with Lioness and Lions from around the Country each year to support each other, swap experiences and learn together. Let's just say Lioness' know how to party!

My current Lioness roles are MD105 Lioness Policy Co-Ordinator and the last ever MD105 Lioness Clubs Deputy Chairman. As of  30th June 2021 Lioness Clubs around the World will cease to exist, a great loss to this magnificent service organisation. Until then I look forward to working with our fellow Lions, both locally and nationally.

As 105CW Lions/Lioness Co-Ordinator, or Lioness District Rep if you prefer, it is my job to liaise between the Lions and Lioness of district CW. This is a role I have held for a few years now and it has been a great way of getting to know our Lions and the fabulous work you all do.
