Lovely start to the 5 mile walk to Thurgarton.
Our leader, Ian E, on the left. All of us enjoying a bit of shade.
We finally made it & got our well deserved supper!
At least 'yours truly' plate was clean!
A few of us on the bus going home. It must be past Pauline's bedtime, I think!
Annika putting together a display of Lions work at the entrance to Farnstock. Good job, Annika!
Not to be outdone, Keith has stuck some wristbands onto the edge of a table! Doesn't he know they won't come off and should be put on people's wrists? Still he looks happy enough.
Looks like Bob's trying to restore Annika's handiwork, or is he just having a rest?
Beautiful sunny morning - all ready to go, just waiting for the punters to turn up!
Steve was in trouble and told to sit on the 'naughty' chair!
The heavy rain showers were not going to dampen this child's enthusiasm and fun!
Our welcoming bike at 'Floral Media' - For most of our Lions this was the bike of choice in their teens!
Drinks reception on the beautiful lawns. Wildflower gardens in the background. The ladies looking wonderful in their posh frocks and Ian's hair blowing gently in the wind.
Fozzie and Evie looking resplendent in their evening attire pretending that this is their garden and house.
Brian and Francis are so relaxed. Got onto the seat but can they get up??
Do we really have to go in for the speeches???
Best include some of the Rotary!!!! Bill Brown's definitely making the most of his greeting with Jill Key - lingering just a little too long.
Enid and Barry discussing Brexit. Deal or No Deal !!!!
Has there ever been a more relaxed start to a Charter??
Best get inside! The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Superb venue !!
Incoming President comparing himself with Kennedy, Putin, Nelson Mandella and I think even Trump got a mention. Think he could be too intelligent for most of us Lions.
The old handing over to the new. Love the backdrop - shame Sky TV cameras weren't there.
Put this in Black and White because I think that's the last time he danced judging by the moves he was making on the dance floor!!
High powered secret cabal discussing a presidential takeover but have already forgotten who's the present incumbent. Actually it was a discussion about the new Forest manager. Tony has offered his services.
A great night was had by all - thanks to all who had a hand in organising it. This is for Peter - 'Great leaders carry a watering can at all times - The job is highly dependent on your ability to nurture. Be the person who tells them what they are doing right and maybe, they will grow into something amazing." Of course this doesn't apply to our Lions - we're all past it!!!!
