President's Blog - October 2022
We are now settling back into our Club events. The Ball Race in August and the 10k Beach Race in September were once again a great success. We’ve also been at events with our Lions tombola. I hope you’ve managed to see us and hopefully you may have been lucky enough to win one of our cute lions.
It seems everyone is pleased that we are able to go ahead with the bonfire this year, which will be held on the actual Bonfire Night date, something that we rarely manage. Organising the event is becoming increasingly difficult due to new rules and regulations but these have been addressed and it will be a great community event. Let’s hope the weather is kind to us.
Plans are being put in place for the Over 85’s Christmas Lunch at Filey School and we are already looking at our schedule for the Santa sleigh runs in the weeks up to Christmas. I’m sure Santa will be as popular as ever and we as Lions enjoy this event as much as the children (and adults!!)
As a Club we are always looking for new members. If you are interested and feel you can give some time to help in the community please contact us via the Website or our Facebook page. We’ll be happy to have a chat with you.
Finally thank you all for the support you continue to give to our Club.
