On Saturday 2nd April, the Northwood Lions Club ‘Saturday Market’ was delighted to receive an official visit from Hillingdon Mayor & Mayoress, Councillors George & Judith Cooper.
The Northwood Lions Club’s main fund-raising activity is the Saturday Market, known as the Lions Den – held every Saturday morning at 195 Pinner Road, Northwood (near the Iron Bridge). This is where we raise the vast bulk of our funds, and the Market is well worth a visit. The Lions Den, which is run by Olive Fairclough and her dedicated band of volunteers, sells a huge variety of goods, and is a very sociable experience – one visit and you’ll be hooked!
