Membership of the club is by invitation and requires the unanimous agreement of the club members. The club currently has 19 members, two whom are original members from 1980. With Budleigh Salterton at the centre, the district covers an area of approximately 35 square miles in rural East Devon. Club Members live and work across the district and come from all walks of life.
All members are involved in activity and fund raising events.
Membership dues are paid in January and July. Membership is just £50 per year, other events (social) are costed out at the time. Whilst attendance at these events is not compulsory, they can be very enjoyable and are a good way to build fellowship and friendships within the club.
Almost every month the Club organises an event for members and wives including prospective members. Involving wives is an important feature of the club, because on many occasions it would be almost impossible to hold events, such as the Gala Week or the Charity Golf Day without their support.
It can be a trip away for a few days, a quiz evening, skittles, or an annual walk with other Lions Clubs in our Zone (East Devon approximately), any sporting events are well within the abilities of all the members
The principal social event is our Handover & Charter Dinner at the end of June when the newly elected President takes office. This also celebrates the Club's birthday i.e. the anniversary of when it was chartered in 1980. We also have an annual Ladies Night usually held in the spring.
