A message from our President
On behalf of Moseley and Kings Heath Lions.
I would like to thank you for visiting our website.
Moseley and Kings Heath Lions Club covers this area of South Birmingham. All our members are volunteers and are local people who are prepared to help those in need or to get involved with issues that affect the local community and also National and even International projects.
The club members get together on the second and fouth wednesday of every month at Lions HQ -257 Alcester Road South, Kings heath B14 6DT
We belong to the Midlands district of Lions Clubs which has 60 Lions clubs, with over 900 caring men and women who volunteer their time to help others.
We are ordinary people doing some amazing things, trying to find solutions to meet the needs of individuals and communities.
Fun and friendships are an important aspect of every Lions Club and social events which reflect the interests of members are regularly organised by clubs such as ours.
We are always looking for new members – like minded people who have the time and commitment to serve their local community. If you are interested in finding out more about who we are and what we do, please click on the Contact Us at the top of the page I look forward to hearing from you.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the age range ?
Lions will welcome you whatever your age. In the Moseley and Kings Heath Lions Club most of us are over 40 which is why we would particularly welcome younger Lions.
Do I have to live in this area?
No. In fact we already have Lions living in Birmingham, Rowley Regis and Bromsgrove
Is it all meetings ?
No. We do meet twice a month on the second and fourth Wednesday. Whilst the first meeting is a formal business meeting the second one is more of a social depending upon our needs.
Is it expensive ?
Our annual fee is only £70, in other words just over £1 per week, so the answer has got to be “no”

No. Lions welcome everyone from all backgrounds and walks of life, male or female, whether you are working or retired, providing you share in our objectives – to serve the local community.
How many people are there in a Lions Club ?
Usually between 15 and 35, although Clubs do vary. We currently have 22 members, but with some Lions moving on each year it is essential to replace them. We actively seek new members.
