President's Blog - July 2022

Hello everybody.

I want to introduce myself for the first time on our website. As some of you will already know I’m Lion Brenda Casey and have just taken over as President of the Club.

It’s a great honour and I’m going to do my best for the Club and the people we serve in our area. A big thank you to Lion John Sellers who has done a truly excellent job as President of the Club over the last two years.  He has kept us together in that time and has helped us move forward during some difficult times.

As a Club we are hoping to get back to normal with our annual events. Everything is in place for our Ball Race on 3rd August and 10K Beach Race on 25th September.  Fingers crossed that we are able to go ahead with our bonfire, which is actually on the 5th November this year, and our Over 85’s Christmas lunch at the Academy (top school).  Of course that will lead us onto our very popular Santa sleigh runs. As Lions we get as much pleasure out of doing this as the children (and adults!!) do. What a treat it is to see the children’s faces when Santa arrives.

We are looking forward to all these events and hope you support us in our efforts.

Thank you for taking time to read this my first blog. I will updating you with information during my year as President.

Lion President  Brenda Casey.
