A Welcome from our Host Chairman and Host Committee

It is my pleasure on behalf of Grantham Host Committee and Grantham Lions Club to invite you to the market town of Grantham.

Grantham began as a Saxon dwelling with the word Ham meaning village and Granta a name, so Granta's ham became Grantham. By the 11th Century Grantham was formally known as a market town, mainly trading in wool. 

In the 13th Century St Wulframs Church was built with its 281 foot spire and chained library set in the oldest part of the town, this is certainly worth a visit. 

The town is famous for two people in particular, firstly Sir Isaac Newton in 1642, born just outside the town in Colsterworth and attending the towns Kings School. Also Margaret Thatcher (1925) who became the country's first Lady Prime Minister.

There are several stately homes around the town well worth a visit, Grantham House, Harlaxton Manor, Belton house and Stoke Rochford Hall, home to convention in May 2020. Also Belvoir Castle is nearby. 

You are invited to join us on Host Night where the theme for the evening will be celebrating Lincolnshire's role in the second world War during the 1940's with a Lunch and music from the era with the Dream Belles. 

We look forward to meeting you at Stoke Rochford Hall. 

Yours in Lionism

Lion Phil Marshall
