Welcome to the Lions Club of Turramurra Inc​

Charter Club

The Lions Club of Turramurra Inc. Charter Club

The Lions Club of Turramurra Inc. was started up  in April 2020 and was incorporated in May 2020 with 22 members. Our club has since grown to 27 members and we aim to make progress in community engagement and development through Sustainability & Service.

Our Signature project is part of the Environment cause and "Being Sustainable in our day to day life" is our aim. Through this we intend to work closely with the Ku-Ring-Gai Council and the local community to focus on ways to bring reduce house hold waste and bring communities together for a better tomorrow. 

We, as a group are committed to this project and have begun our journey of learning and developing to serve our community and the people. The Lions Club of Turramurra would like to invite you be part of our group as friends of Lions and work together to create more sustainable life styles in our everyday choices. Your participation in this cause is one extra step forward.

Living in the Ku-ring-gai National Park and its surrounding, it is important that we all do our bit to help the local area and environment and living a  sustainable life style can help immensely improve the environment we live in.

In the future we intend to expand the interest in living sustainable lives to the other district clubs, their communities and members and eventually around the country & globe.

We think each of us have a invaluable task to help build a better tomorrow. 

So you might ask, how do we start ? Well it doesn't take much for you to do. Every little task you do or don't will be a start.

Here are some of our ideas.

Household Waste Reduction:

One of the biggest tasks we can take on as individuals are household waste reduction. By making conscious choices about what you buy and through that choosing products that don't contribute to waste can help reduce our discarded waste/bins by 50-70%.  This in return will reduce the number of garbage truck required to collect our waste. Lesser Trucks lesser emissions increasing the quality of the air in the area. This is just one example but an effective one, that you directly have control over in your own space but will have an invaluable contribution. One by one we can help. "This is the power of One"

We would like to help you tack your waste and see the impacts it makes. To do this you can record your waste, compost and recyclables on our Waste Tracker below by clicking the  Enter Weekly Waste

Tree Planting:

Planting trees is another project we are undertaking to do. We intend to plant 500-1000 Tress every year. 2nd August was Planet Ark's National Tree Day and the Ku-ing-ai Council organised a Tree Planting Day at Bannock burn Oval. Our team planted around 200 tress that day. It was a fun and fulfilling day.  We are making looking out for more project to help out with  in the communityWatch this pace and get in contact with us.
