President's Blog - January 2021


Hello everyone and welcome back to Filey lions website.

As we enter into a new year, we are very pleased to be putting behind us a very difficult and challenging year and look forward hopefully to a time when we can resume some sort of normality. We look forward to being able to serve our community with our fundraising and community events which were all put on hold in 2020.

We also look forward to a time when, as Lions, we can meet face to face and enjoy the fellowship and friendship that should come automatically with being a part of this great organisation, but sadly was missing in the last 10 months.


The roll out of the vaccines for Coronavirus continues in our area, too late for some and we pay respect to all those families who have lost loved ones through this tragic pandemic.

May we continue in the future to serve and assist our community, and I take this opportunity to wish you all a happy, peaceful and healthy new year.
