Martinborough Lions supported Camp Quality at Riversdale Beach in January by running the Sand Castle building site. Camp Quality brings fun, hope and happiness into the lives of children living with cancer – inspiring them to get on with being kids again. Some of our Lions proved quite innovative at Sand Castle building and lots of fun was had by all.

At our first meeting for Martinborough Lions voted to step up their support for the Aorangi Restoration Trust by running a second predator trap line on the Palliser Bay Coast. Lions put out over 30 new traps targeting the predators of our precious sea and migratory birds, which often nest in a shallow scrape in the sand or soil on the coast.  We may even encourage some Little Blue Penguins back onto our coast! Education is required to ensure that seabird nesting areas around the coast are not disturbed by livestock or vehicles as well.

Lions Members have Also been active this month supporting the Martinborough Fairs and on our Firewood working bees. South Wairarapa Mayor Alex Beijen came along to our first February meeting to update us on all the important developments facing the district – all very interesting.

A reminder to Mountain Bikers, Runners and Walkers that the Lion’s Skyline Challenge on the hills to the east of Martinborough is on 25th April.  Our charity this year is the Wharekaka Aged Care Community. Register your entry now on https://skylinechallenge.co.nz/

If you are a youth in need some support in this respect then make a time to have a chat or send in an application setting out what you want to achieve and how we can help, to Martinborough Lions, PO Box 59, Martinborough.
