he Lions Club of Tavistock was formed in 1976 by a nucleus of around 12 people most of whom were employed by the then West Devon District Council. Membership, which now stands at 42 people (both male and female from all walks of life), is by invitation only. The lower age limit is 18 with no upper limit.

The general club meetings are held at 7.30pm on the second Monday of every month and this is preceded on the same night by the Directors meeting at 6.30pm.
