The Lions Clubs of District 105SW of which Cheddar Vale is part, invite pupils from local schools and youth organisations to take part in a Peace Poster Competition. The winning entry from our District, which covers Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, goes forward to the national judging and from there is entered into the International Competition, which is judged in America. 

Lions International Peace Poster Contest 2019-20

Journey of Peace

 Lion President Keith and Lion Sylvia attended a meeting of the 1st Cheddar Guides to present awards for this year’s Peace Poster Contest on Monday 25th November.   The Guides have taken part in the Peace Poster Contest for many years and are pleased to include it in their autumn programme of events.  Twenty of the guides took part and this year’s winner was Poppy Saull, aged 11.  Poppy’s colourful poster has been sent to DG Jim to be judged at the District level of the contest.  Ruby Booth, who is photographed with her poster, received the runner-up prize.   We are very grateful to the 1st Cheddar Guides for their ongoing involvement in this Lions youth project, and to their leader, Bev Davies MJF who is a great supporter of Cheddar Vale Lions. 

The virtual exhibition of winning Peace Posters is now on the Wells Cathedral Website (under Latest Events) in lieu of the actual exhibition which was planned for May.    The link is as follows:

Due to the current situation, the contest rules for 2020-21 will be relaxed, and competitions can be run to best suit you and your schools or youth groups.
