Must have had too much to drink as they all look a little blurred! Steve is in the middle with our President, Verdun, on his right (our left) and his sponsor, Steve, on his left (our right)! Got it!
That's better! now they're looking sharper - must be the effect of the beer, although I think Steve is in need of another pint!
Excellent Charter Night at West Notts (Saturday March 9th). Great Indian food and entertainment although speeches a bit long.
3 bottles of wine, Dancers and a Curry - Steve's in heaven!!
Roger and Pauline on a messy table at West Notts 25th Charter.
Some cool Bollywood moves by Riemie Kath and Evie - look in the background and Steve's throwing a few shapes
This is definitely one for the archive - Roger throwing caution to the wind next to Steve Scarle - nothing embarrassing about this at all????
Slightly disturbing - its great to see that Southwell Lions show the decorum and restraint expected when we are representing the club!!!
Not sure that this needs any comment. Enjoyed so much that we are going to organise a Bollywood night later in the year - so be prepared
Right then - it's over to you! Please provide a caption for this photo of our President, Verdun, as he's about to take hold of a medieval Green Glaze Pot from c.1200 found on the Burgage as part of a community dig!
Here are the suggestions received so far:-
1. It was broken before I touched it, honest!
2. If you rub it here it grows bigger.
3. Help! I can't get away from the old relics.
4.That's about the only trophy Wales will win this year.
5. Spot the crackpot!
6. No wonder I need a hip replacement.
7. You stood on my bloody foot!
So there we were trying to get a decent photo of Roger presenting the Bob Eastty Memorial Trophy to David Salmon of the Sherwood Archers swim team for coming top in sponsorship in our 2018 Swimathon, and someone's keeps getting their head in the way! Guess who?
Just 4 of the many Lions who did a sterling job on Saturday 26th Jan. Thanks a lot to Bob for organising it all and well worth while it was. There were 72 patients who were tested, 25 males and 47 women. 32 people were found to be of High or Very High risk and I'm sure were grateful for the early diagnosis. Might well hold another event later in the year.
Well at least the chairs are facing the right way! All we need now are some people!
The 'Man in Charge' giving last minute instructions on how to perform the 12 Days of Christmas.
Nice to see a lot of people turned up!
Paul caught on camera as he tries to capture the elusive Elvis!
Our very own Keith did a sterling job of MC-ing the concert. But just managed to catch him without the usual 'Christmas Cheer' on his face!
Not sure if Martin was going to have a go at conducting the Lions Choir, or maybe he is just shy!
Thought we were all singing off the same song sheet, but Richard clearly felt inspired to photograph the audience instead! (Probably just to prove to ourselves that we had one!)
And here are some of the audience, enjoying their interval afternoon tea and a chat!
This is one Richard took of me about to take a shot of him with the Lions' "choir".
It's Lion Brian escorting Santa around town while everyone enjoyed the lights, shopping, carol singing and music plus a little bit of imbibing festive drinks! Can't work out who's Santa's stand-in though.

This is the early riser group 8.30 till 11am. You can tell 'cos Mike's forgot to put his shirt on. Sold nearly 100 raffle tickets and the other later shift sold about the same so well worth the effort. In height order - Graham, Bob, Verdun and Mike. Unfortunately do not have photo of next group !!! Oh yes - we're in doorway of COOP.
The raffle prize put together by Beaumond House.
