south west lions?
« on: November 13, 2010, 10:50:49 AM »
not sure of the demand for this, but is it possible to set one up to see if its needed?

im sure i have seen a few around, and since moving to devon, (and once my finances are sorted to allow me to get to games again), it would be nice to get in touch with them and travel to matches with fellow villa fans, rather than just 8 hours round trip of silence on the train...

no worries if its already been looked at, but just thought i would throw the thought out there...

Try looking at the AVFC lions club website.  It will tell you if there is a lions club near you.  If not, it's quite easy to set one up and all the details should be on that site.  Good luck.

Welcome to Devon, where abouts? I love it here, been here in Dawlish since I was 8 so along time now.

I used to be part of the South West Lions Club, although because I played footy myself I never went to loads of games. There was one season, when we signed Collymore and I was crocked so I attended most home games. Any way its always been very well run whenever I have used them. I have 3 young kids now so I have not been apart of it for a while.
A few years back the South West Lions all met in Kingsteignton in a pub, and Dennis Mortimer was arranged  for a talk before the match on the box. It was great, got to shake his hand and get photos.
There website is http://southwestvilla.com/. My mate still goes from time to time and says its better run now then ever before. As soon as my kids are a bit older I'll be re-joining.

If devon do not run a bus for any reason you could always hitch a lift with the somerset Branch as long as you get yourself to J26, M5 as this is our closest stop to Plymouth. We already have people traveling from Dawlish, Ottery St Mary and other parts to meet our bus at this point.

Hope this helps.
