Lion President



President Phil Birkett

The President of the Club is Phil Birkett, a retired company managing director. Phil has been a Lion for over 12 years, and, apart from a previous stint as President, his main job in the Club has been as Social Secretary.

Phil says: “The public’s normal experience of their town’s Lions Club is of a group of volunteers who are prepared to spend some of their spare time in raising funds for worthy causes in their local area. That is indeed the prime function of the Club, but certainly not the only one. The clue is in our name – we are the Witney Lions CLUB, and that means that we have a varied and interesting social calendar each year, to have fun and enjoy each others’ company. As a bonus, this year we have a social event doubling as a charity fundraiser – a Murder Mystery Dinner presentation called “Death by Radio” which will be held at Witney Lakes Resort in February 2018. Myself and other members of the Standlake Players drama group will be involved, and I guarantee lots of laughter and whodunit fun!”

If you want a great night out or, even better, if you want to learn more about becoming a Lion yourself, contact Phil directly (press button above to email) and he will be delighted to talk to you about it.

Lions membership is rewarding and enjoyable, is open to men and women of any age, and is a great way to “put something back” into your local community.
