President's Blog - September 2021

Hello again everyone and thankyou for visiting our website.


As we approach the year end , we reflect once again on what a difficult 18 months to 2 Years it has been for the volunteer sector, along with everyone else. Unable to go ahead with our bonfire and fireworks display in November, and our annual Christmas lunch for the over 85’s, we look forward to getting out on our tour of the town and villages with our santa sleigh. Even this will be scaled back somewhat, as we won’t be door knocking, but just providing the presence in the streets to let you all know that we are still there and keen to be supporting our community. Of course we will have collection buckets out and be very happy for you all to come out into the streets and see santa on tour.


In place of the cancelled over 85’s Christmas lunch, we will be delivering Hampers to our residents in that age bracket.

We look forward to 2022 being a year when we can return to some normality, or find other ways to continue our fundraising and community events. Already on our calendar are an Easter trolley dash in conjunction with Filey Tesco, Ball race in early August, 10k beach race in September, and of course a return to Bonfire and Fireworks next November. We will be trying to tick all the boxes for the safety requirements in good time, to enable that event to go ahead.

In the meantime, we wish you all a Happy Christmas and a peaceful new year and hope that you all keep safe and well.

Best Wishes.

Lion President John Sellers.
