The Bridgwater Lions Club has announced that it has taken the decision to close after many years of service to the local community.
Lion President Peter Hill said “We are sorry to announce that the Bridgwater Club has closed after 46 years of service. For some time, it has been difficult to recruit new members to come forward to help with our fund raising and various projects so this difficult decision has now had to be faced. We would like to thank everyone that has supported us over many years and it has been a privilege to have been able to assist local people and groups during that period.
We hope that at some time in the not too distant future that a new club can be formed to continue helping local people in the Bridgwater area. If anyone is interested in finding out more, please telephone me on 01278-452235”
