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.
Remembering the fallen on 11th November 2018 - 100th anniversary of Armistice Day ending the 1st World War.
Santa on his own and looking for his little helpers. "They said they'd be here for 9.30". He owes everything to his elves - he's an elf-made man!!!!
Arriving in dribs and drabs (whatever they are)! Where's Santa gone? - They need to look for Santa Clues!! (Stay with me - they get worse)
Altogether at last but who composed the picture with those two gnomes standing in front of 'Merry"?
But where's Wally ( sorry - Santa)? Must be a lost Clause!
No elf and safety concerns here! Santa's climbed up onto the sleigh. Loving the Christmas Jumpers and hats!! Now's the time to get in training for the collections and see if we can make this year the most successful yet.
Looked again and decided its not too dark to use. Love the two red objects, full of hot air and likely to float away at any time - balloons aren't bad either.
A cheque for £500 has just been presented to the 'Live at Home Scheme' but that picture was a bit dark so you'll have to imagine the actual cheque. Two of our elderly stalwarts, Tony and Mike' did the presentation. Another very worthwhile cause supported by the Lions - Well Done!!!
