Thornbury Lions charter dinner

October 27 2017

The annual Charter Dinner was the latest event in the Club’s thirtieth anniversary celebrations.

The annual Charter Dinner was the latest event in the Club’s thirtieth anniversary celebrations.  It took place at the Gables Hotel at Falfield with sixty guests present. The Club played host to members from other local Lions Clubs including Dursley, Chepstow, Brunel and Bradley Stoke. Lion President Shekar Bheenuck welcomed everyone to the evening and gave an update of the Club’s activities. 

Fund raising is still going very well especially thanks to the bookshop and with the emphasis this year on youth activities, donations have been given to local schools. 

The Club is also looking for a candidate for the Lions Young Ambassador Award to follow in the successful footsteps of Lizzie O’ Brian who did so well this year. At the other end of the age scale the Club is again hosting the Senior Citizens Meal at the Armstrong Hall on Saturday 9 December at 4pm. Tickets at £6 each, which is the same price as last year, will be on sale at the Lions bookshop in The Precinct on Saturday 18 November between 9 and 10 am. 

 In reply to the president, District Governor Steve Petty congratulated the Club on its continued success and also its strong membership. The evening was brought to an entertaining close by Thornbury Musical Theatre Group with songs from some of the newer musicals on the scene.
