Tring Lions have recently sponsored some new signage along the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal. The branch of the canal runs from Bulborne near Tring to Wendover and is currently being restored by the Wendover Arm Trust. The signage will guide walkers around a section of the canal at Little Tring where the towpath is inaccessible

Last year Tring celebrated the 700th anniversary of the granting of Town Charter status by King Edward II. To commemorate the occasion the Lions sponsored a book containing photos of all the events that marked the occasion. The book was compiled by Tring Together and copies of the book have been presented to Tring Town Council, the Library, Tring Together and last year’s Town Mayor, Stephen Hearn.
All the local schools took an active part in the celebrations and yesterday copies of the book were also presented to them.
