THORNBURY Lions Club has planted two trees in memory of long serving members Leon Blunos and Malcolm Gregory.

The club said the hard-working members were sadly missed but the trees would be a reminder of their contribution to the organisation they supported and their communities. 

One of the trees, a cherry, has been planted in Severn View Road, Thornbury, to remember Mr Blunos, who is the father of celebrity chef Martin Blunos - a former pupil at the town’s Castle School.

In Alveston, a beech tree has been planted on The Green in memory of Malcolm Gregory.

The Lions were helped with organising the planting by Thornbury tree warden Judith Hurford.

Meanwhile, Thornbury Baptist Youth Club has benefited from the Lions’ work to support its community and now boasts a table football game that was recently donated by the organisation.
