President’s Report (PH):

 

President Pamela gave her final Presidential Report. She told the Meeting that the year had flown by and she had thoroughly enjoyed her year of office.  It had been an amazing adventure.

 

Over her year of office she had met new friends and caught up with old ones. She had attended numerous Meetings, Charters and the Convention at Kendal.

There were three things that particularly stood out:

1        Judging the children’s Fancy Dress at Fleetwood Carnival

2.       Attending the unveiling of the statue of Sir Peter Hesketh in Fleetwood

3.       And, perhaps best of all, her attendance at Buckingham Palace in February to meet with the Countess of Wessex – in celebration of Lions Centenary

 Ironically, the President said that her year would probably be remembered for being the year the Club, sadly, lost the most Members.

1.       Although she was no longer a Member at the time of her death, Sonja Hawkins was included in this list. Sonja was a member for a long number of years and only resigned because she knew she was suffering from what turned out to be a terminal illness.

2.       Mike Glennon – again lost to Higher Service. The President had been to see Mike with Lion Paul in the hospital just before he died. He was so looking forward to his 90th birthday later in the year. Sadly he never made it.

3.       Perhaps the greatest shock of all was the loss of Bernadette Williams.  She was the Widow of one of the Club’s Founder Members Les.

          Bernadette had joined Fleetwood & Cleveleys after Les had died, and had been a valued Member of the Club in the years since. 

 

 

 

Other Members lost during the year were:

1.       Alan Day to Kirkham

2.       Sue McEvoy to Scotland to be nearer to her family

3.       Ian Cherry who had recently resigned due to continuing problems with his eyesight

 

The President then offered her warmest congratulations to Lion Margaret Purcell on being installed as the Incoming President of Fleetwood & Cleveleys Lions. The Club was lucky to have her.

 

Secretaries report (DB):

I have downloaded copies of the weekly digest and the DG Newsletter apart from that it has been a quiet month.

Activities report (VB):

We have had quite a few events on this year and I would like to say a big thank you to the activities team for all their help and support once again during the last year. Knowing that you have a good team who gets involved makes a big difference to what we can and cannot achieve.

This year our activities have included:-

Tram Sunday July 2017 £277.00 raised

August 2017 – Fun day with the homeless hounds raise £27.00 although a small amount we were able to get Lions out there with the result that we gained two prospective members.

Our August Summer Ball raised £700.00

In October our Quiz Night raised £74.00

During December we took part in the Decorate a Christmas Tree from recycled items we achieved a Merit. We also raffled several Xmas Hampers in various venues in Fleetwood, Poulton, Thornton & Cleveleys raising £711.00 the best yet!

In March we held a St. Patricks Day Pre-Swimarathon Dance raising a further £99.50 and of course our biggest event of the year our Swimarathon which raised and incredible £7,000.00. We also raffled several Easter Egg Hampers again across various locations raising £393.30

In May we held the Presentation night for all the charities that took part in the Swimarathon Event and from the raffle we raised £96.00. Also in May we were able to again partake in the Mustard Seed Group Fun Day raising £75.00.

Finally in early June the items left over from the Mustard Seed Tombola were put into a hamper and raffled at the River Wyre to assist the landlord in raising funds for a local defibrillator raising a total of £102.00

 

Almoners Report (PK):

Firstly there was Barbara’s swelling on her leg which at the time was a worry and there was a problem with Mavis which as I remember was palpitation of the heart in both cases the outcome was good.

Next was the loss of Mike Glennon. Pam and I visited him in hospital he had his old problem fluid on the lungs he looked well and was later discharged from hospital.The day after he was discharged I went round to see him but there was no reply I rang the hospital to see if he had been readmitted to the hospital, they said he had not but they would check with the paramedics only to find that Mike had passed away in the night. Mike was a gentleman and will be greatly missed. Then there was Cyril who had a chest infection and at the time was very ill. Our friend Bernadette was next she also had a bad chest infection which in turn had serious effects on her heart she was put on a life support machine but as time went on she began to deteriorate and the machine was switched off. Our friend Donald was taken ill after a fall and thankfully he did manage to recover and attend our changeover, it is good to see him. Finally Ian Clare was taken ill he had lost his balance and his speech was slurred .I took him for a blood test at Victoria Hospital on the Monday but he was admitted into hospital on the Wednesday for tests. I went with Pam to see Ian he was in good form. The doctors suspected a stroke but more tests were needed.

President’s Report (PH):

 

President Pamela gave her final Presidential Report. She told the Meeting that the year had flown by and she had thoroughly enjoyed her year of office.  It had been an amazing adventure.

 

Over her year of office she had met new friends and caught up with old ones. She had attended numerous Meetings, Charters and the Convention at Kendal.

There were three things that particularly stood out:

1        Judging the children’s Fancy Dress at Fleetwood Carnival

2.       Attending the unveiling of the statue of Sir Peter Hesketh in Fleetwood

3.       And, perhaps best of all, her attendance at Buckingham Palace in February to meet with the Countess of Wessex – in celebration of Lions Centenary

 Ironically, the President said that her year would probably be remembered for being the year the Club, sadly, lost the most Members.

1.       Although she was no longer a Member at the time of her death, Sonja Hawkins was included in this list. Sonja was a member for a long number of years and only resigned because she knew she was suffering from what turned out to be a terminal illness.

2.       Mike Glennon – again lost to Higher Service. The President had been to see Mike with Lion Paul in the hospital just before he died. He was so looking forward to his 90th birthday later in the year. Sadly he never made it.

3.       Perhaps the greatest shock of all was the loss of Bernadette Williams.  She was the Widow of one of the Club’s Founder Members Les.

          Bernadette had joined Fleetwood & Cleveleys after Les had died, and had been a valued Member of the Club in the years since. 

 

 

 

Other Members lost during the year were:

1.       Alan Day to Kirkham

2.       Sue McEvoy to Scotland to be nearer to her family

3.       Ian Cherry who had recently resigned due to continuing problems with his eyesight

This year our activities have included:-

August 2017 – Fun day with the homeless hounds raise £27.00 although a small amount we were able to get Lions out there with the result that we gained two prospective members.

Our August Summer Ball raised £700.00

In October our Quiz Night raised £74.00

During December we took part in the Decorate a Christmas Tree from recycled items we achieved a Merit. We also raffled several Xmas Hampers in various venues in Fleetwood, Poulton, Thornton & Cleveleys raising £711.00 the best yet!

In March we held a St. Patricks Day Pre-Swimarathon Dance raising a further £99.50 and of course our biggest event of the year our Swimarathon which raised and incredible £7,000.00. We also raffled several Easter Egg Hampers again across various locations raising £393.30

Almoners Report (PK):

Firstly there was Barbara’s swelling on her leg which at the time was a worry and there was a problem with Mavis which as I remember was palpitation of the heart in both cases the outcome was good.

Next was the loss of Mike Glennon. Pam and I visited him in hospital he had his old problem fluid on the lungs he looked well and was later discharged from hospital.The day after he was discharged I went round to see him but there was no reply I rang the hospital to see if he had been readmitted to the hospital, they said he had not but they would check with the paramedics only to find that Mike had passed away in the night. Mike was a gentleman and will be greatly missed. Then there was Cyril who had a chest infection and at the time was very ill. Our friend Bernadette was next she also had a bad chest infection which in turn had serious effects on her heart she was put on a life support machine but as time went on she began to deteriorate and the machine was switched off. Our friend Donald was taken ill after a fall and thankfully he did manage to recover and attend our changeover, it is good to see him. Finally Ian Clare was taken ill he had lost his balance and his speech was slurred .I took him for a blood test at Victoria Hospital on the Monday but he was admitted into hospital on the Wednesday for tests. I went with Pam to see Ian he was in good form. The doctors suspected a stroke but more tests were needed.

President’s Report (PH):

 

President Pamela gave her final Presidential Report. She told the Meeting that the year had flown by and she had thoroughly enjoyed her year of office.  It had been an amazing adventure.

 

Over her year of office she had met new friends and caught up with old ones. She had attended numerous Meetings, Charters and the Convention at Kendal.

There were three things that particularly stood out:

1        Judging the children’s Fancy Dress at Fleetwood Carnival

2.       Attending the unveiling of the statue of Sir Peter Hesketh in Fleetwood

3.       And, perhaps best of all, her attendance at Buckingham Palace in February to meet with the Countess of Wessex – in celebration of Lions Centenary

 Ironically, the President said that her year would probably be remembered for being the year the Club, sadly, lost the most Members.

1.       Although she was no longer a Member at the time of her death, Sonja Hawkins was included in this list. Sonja was a member for a long number of years and only resigned because she knew she was suffering from what turned out to be a terminal illness.

2.       Mike Glennon – again lost to Higher Service. The President had been to see Mike with Lion Paul in the hospital just before he died. He was so looking forward to his 90th birthday later in the year. Sadly he never made it.

3.       Perhaps the greatest shock of all was the loss of Bernadette Williams.  She was the Widow of one of the Club’s Founder Members Les.

          Bernadette had joined Fleetwood & Cleveleys after Les had died, and had been a valued Member of the Club in the years since. 

 

 

 

Other Members lost during the year were:

1.       Alan Day to Kirkham

2.       Sue McEvoy to Scotland to be nearer to her family

3.       Ian Cherry who had recently resigned due to continuing problems with his eyesight

 

The President then offered her warmest congratulations to Lion Margaret Purcell on being installed as the Incoming President of Fleetwood & Cleveleys Lions. The Club was lucky to have her.

Almoners Report (PK):

Firstly there was Barbara’s swelling on her leg which at the time was a worry and there was a problem with Mavis which as I remember was palpitation of the heart in both cases the outcome was good.

Next was the loss of Mike Glennon. Pam and I visited him in hospital he had his old problem fluid on the lungs he looked well and was later discharged from hospital.The day after he was discharged I went round to see him but there was no reply I rang the hospital to see if he had been readmitted to the hospital, they said he had not but they would check with the paramedics only to find that Mike had passed away in the night. Mike was a gentleman and will be greatly missed. Then there was Cyril who had a chest infection and at the time was very ill. Our friend Bernadette was next she also had a bad chest infection which in turn had serious effects on her heart she was put on a life support machine but as time went on she began to deteriorate and the machine was switched off. Our friend Donald was taken ill after a fall and thankfully he did manage to recover and attend our changeover, it is good to see him. Finally Ian Clare was taken ill he had lost his balance and his speech was slurred .I took him for a blood test at Victoria Hospital on the Monday but he was admitted into hospital on the Wednesday for tests. I went with Pam to see Ian he was in good form. The doctors suspected a stroke but more tests were needed.

President’s Report (PH):

 

President Pamela gave her final Presidential Report. She told the Meeting that the year had flown by and she had thoroughly enjoyed her year of office.  It had been an amazing adventure.

 

Over her year of office she had met new friends and caught up with old ones. She had attended numerous Meetings, Charters and the Convention at Kendal.

There were three things that particularly stood out:

1        Judging the children’s Fancy Dress at Fleetwood Carnival

2.       Attending the unveiling of the statue of Sir Peter Hesketh in Fleetwood

3.       And, perhaps best of all, her attendance at Buckingham Palace in February to meet with the Countess of Wessex – in celebration of Lions Centenary

 Ironically, the President said that her year would probably be remembered for being the year the Club, sadly, lost the most Members.

1.       Although she was no longer a Member at the time of her death, Sonja Hawkins was included in this list. Sonja was a member for a long number of years and only resigned because she knew she was suffering from what turned out to be a terminal illness.

2.       Mike Glennon – again lost to Higher Service. The President had been to see Mike with Lion Paul in the hospital just before he died. He was so looking forward to his 90th birthday later in the year. Sadly he never made it.

3.       Perhaps the greatest shock of all was the loss of Bernadette Williams.  She was the Widow of one of the Club’s Founder Members Les.

          Bernadette had joined Fleetwood & Cleveleys after Les had died, and had been a valued Member of the Club in the years since. 

 

 

 

Other Members lost during the year were:

1.       Alan Day to Kirkham

2.       Sue McEvoy to Scotland to be nearer to her family

3.       Ian Cherry who had recently resigned due to continuing problems with his eyesight

 

The President then offered her warmest congratulations to Lion Margaret Purcell on being installed as the Incoming President of Fleetwood & Cleveleys Lions. The Club was lucky to have her.

President’s Report (PH):

 

President Pamela gave her final Presidential Report. She told the Meeting that the year had flown by and she had thoroughly enjoyed her year of office.  It had been an amazing adventure.

 

Over her year of office she had met new friends and caught up with old ones. She had attended numerous Meetings, Charters and the Convention at Kendal.

There were three things that particularly stood out:

1        Judging the children’s Fancy Dress at Fleetwood Carnival

2.       Attending the unveiling of the statue of Sir Peter Hesketh in Fleetwood

3.       And, perhaps best of all, her attendance at Buckingham Palace in February to meet with the Countess of Wessex – in celebration of Lions Centenary

 Ironically, the President said that her year would probably be remembered for being the year the Club, sadly, lost the most Members.

1.       Although she was no longer a Member at the time of her death, Sonja Hawkins was included in this list. Sonja was a member for a long number of years and only resigned because she knew she was suffering from what turned out to be a terminal illness.

2.       Mike Glennon – again lost to Higher Service. The President had been to see Mike with Lion Paul in the hospital just before he died. He was so looking forward to his 90th birthday later in the year. Sadly he never made it.

3.       Perhaps the greatest shock of all was the loss of Bernadette Williams.  She was the Widow of one of the Club’s Founder Members Les.

          Bernadette had joined Fleetwood & Cleveleys after Les had died, and had been a valued Member of the Club in the years since. 

 

 

 

Other Members lost during the year were:

1.       Alan Day to Kirkham

2.       Sue McEvoy to Scotland to be nearer to her family

3.       Ian Cherry who had recently resigned due to continuing problems with his eyesight

 

The President then offered her warmest congratulations to Lion Margaret Purcell on being installed as the Incoming President of Fleetwood & Cleveleys Lions. The Club was lucky to have her.

 

Secretaries report (DB):

I have downloaded copies of the weekly digest and the DG Newsletter apart from that it has been a quiet month.

Activities report (VB):

We have had quite a few events on this year and I would like to say a big thank you to the activities team for all their help and support once again during the last year. Knowing that you have a good team who gets involved makes a big difference to what we can and cannot achieve.

This year our activities have included:-

Tram Sunday July 2017 £277.00 raised

August 2017 – Fun day with the homeless hounds raise £27.00 although a small amount we were able to get Lions out there with the result that we gained two prospective members.

Our August Summer Ball raised £700.00

In October our Quiz Night raised £74.00

During December we took part in the Decorate a Christmas Tree from recycled items we achieved a Merit. We also raffled several Xmas Hampers in various venues in Fleetwood, Poulton, Thornton & Cleveleys raising £711.00 the best yet!

In March we held a St. Patricks Day Pre-Swimarathon Dance raising a further £99.50 and of course our biggest event of the year our Swimarathon which raised and incredible £7,000.00. We also raffled several Easter Egg Hampers again across various locations raising £393.30

In May we held the Presentation night for all the charities that took part in the Swimarathon Event and from the raffle we raised £96.00. Also in May we were able to again partake in the Mustard Seed Group Fun Day raising £75.00.

Finally in early June the items left over from the Mustard Seed Tombola were put into a hamper and raffled at the River Wyre to assist the landlord in raising funds for a local defibrillator raising a total of £102.00

 

Almoners Report (PK):

Firstly there was Barbara’s swelling on her leg which at the time was a worry and there was a problem with Mavis which as I remember was palpitation of the heart in both cases the outcome was good.

Next was the loss of Mike Glennon. Pam and I visited him in hospital he had his old problem fluid on the lungs he looked well and was later discharged from hospital.The day after he was discharged I went round to see him but there was no reply I rang the hospital to see if he had been readmitted to the hospital, they said he had not but they would check with the paramedics only to find that Mike had passed away in the night. Mike was a gentleman and will be greatly missed. Then there was Cyril who had a chest infection and at the time was very ill. Our friend Bernadette was next she also had a bad chest infection which in turn had serious effects on her heart she was put on a life support machine but as time went on she began to deteriorate and the machine was switched off. Our friend Donald was taken ill after a fall and thankfully he did manage to recover and attend our changeover, it is good to see him. Finally Ian Clare was taken ill he had lost his balance and his speech was slurred .I took him for a blood test at Victoria Hospital on the Monday but he was admitted into hospital on the Wednesday for tests. I went with Pam to see Ian he was in good form. The doctors suspected a stroke but more tests were needed.

President’s Report (PH):

 

President Pamela gave her final Presidential Report. She told the Meeting that the year had flown by and she had thoroughly enjoyed her year of office.  It had been an amazing adventure.

 

Over her year of office she had met new friends and caught up with old ones. She had attended numerous Meetings, Charters and the Convention at Kendal.

There were three things that particularly stood out:

1        Judging the children’s Fancy Dress at Fleetwood Carnival

2.       Attending the unveiling of the statue of Sir Peter Hesketh in Fleetwood

3.       And, perhaps best of all, her attendance at Buckingham Palace in February to meet with the Countess of Wessex – in celebration of Lions Centenary

 Ironically, the President said that her year would probably be remembered for being the year the Club, sadly, lost the most Members.

1.       Although she was no longer a Member at the time of her death, Sonja Hawkins was included in this list. Sonja was a member for a long number of years and only resigned because she knew she was suffering from what turned out to be a terminal illness.

2.       Mike Glennon – again lost to Higher Service. The President had been to see Mike with Lion Paul in the hospital just before he died. He was so looking forward to his 90th birthday later in the year. Sadly he never made it.

3.       Perhaps the greatest shock of all was the loss of Bernadette Williams.  She was the Widow of one of the Club’s Founder Members Les.

          Bernadette had joined Fleetwood & Cleveleys after Les had died, and had been a valued Member of the Club in the years since. 

 

 

 

Other Members lost during the year were:

1.       Alan Day to Kirkham

2.       Sue McEvoy to Scotland to be nearer to her family

3.       Ian Cherry who had recently resigned due to continuing problems with his eyesight

 

The President then offered her warmest congratulations to Lion Margaret Purcell on being installed as the Incoming President of Fleetwood & Cleveleys Lions. The Club was lucky to have her.

This year our activities have included:-

August 2017 – Fun day with the homeless hounds raise £27.00 although a small amount we were able to get Lions out there with the result that we gained two prospective members.

Our August Summer Ball raised £700.00

During December we took part in the Decorate a Christmas Tree from recycled items we achieved a Merit. We also raffled several Xmas Hampers in various venues in Fleetwood, Poulton, Thornton & Cleveleys raising £711.00 the best yet!

In March we held a St. Patricks Day Pre-Swimarathon Dance raising a further £99.50 and of course our biggest event of the year our Swimarathon which raised and incredible £7,000.00. We also raffled several Easter Egg Hampers again across various locations raising £393.30

Almoners Report (PK):

Firstly there was Barbara’s swelling on her leg which at the time was a worry and there was a problem with Mavis which as I remember was palpitation of the heart in both cases the outcome was good.

Next was the loss of Mike Glennon. Pam and I visited him in hospital he had his old problem fluid on the lungs he looked well and was later discharged from hospital.The day after he was discharged I went round to see him but there was no reply I rang the hospital to see if he had been readmitted to the hospital, they said he had not but they would check with the paramedics only to find that Mike had passed away in the night. Mike was a gentleman and will be greatly missed. Then there was Cyril who had a chest infection and at the time was very ill. Our friend Bernadette was next she also had a bad chest infection which in turn had serious effects on her heart she was put on a life support machine but as time went on she began to deteriorate and the machine was switched off. Our friend Donald was taken ill after a fall and thankfully he did manage to recover and attend our changeover, it is good to see him. Finally Ian Clare was taken ill he had lost his balance and his speech was slurred .I took him for a blood test at Victoria Hospital on the Monday but he was admitted into hospital on the Wednesday for tests. I went with Pam to see Ian he was in good form. The doctors suspected a stroke but more tests were needed.

President’s Report (PH):

 

President Pamela gave her final Presidential Report. She told the Meeting that the year had flown by and she had thoroughly enjoyed her year of office.  It had been an amazing adventure.

 

Over her year of office she had met new friends and caught up with old ones. She had attended numerous Meetings, Charters and the Convention at Kendal.

There were three things that particularly stood out:

1        Judging the children’s Fancy Dress at Fleetwood Carnival

2.       Attending the unveiling of the statue of Sir Peter Hesketh in Fleetwood

3.       And, perhaps best of all, her attendance at Buckingham Palace in February to meet with the Countess of Wessex – in celebration of Lions Centenary

 Ironically, the President said that her year would probably be remembered for being the year the Club, sadly, lost the most Members.

1.       Although she was no longer a Member at the time of her death, Sonja Hawkins was included in this list. Sonja was a member for a long number of years and only resigned because she knew she was suffering from what turned out to be a terminal illness.

2.       Mike Glennon – again lost to Higher Service. The President had been to see Mike with Lion Paul in the hospital just before he died. He was so looking forward to his 90th birthday later in the year. Sadly he never made it.

We have had quite a few events on this year and I would like to say a big thank you to the activities team for all their help and support once again during the last year. Knowing that you have a good team who gets involved makes a big difference to what we can and cannot achieve.

This year our activities have included:-

Tram Sunday July 2017 £277.00 raised

August 2017 – Fun day with the homeless hounds raise £27.00 although a small amount we were able to get Lions out there with the result that we gained two prospective members.

Our August Summer Ball raised £700.00

In October our Quiz Night raised £74.00

During December we took part in the Decorate a Christmas Tree from recycled items we achieved a Merit. We also raffled several Xmas Hampers in various venues in Fleetwood, Poulton, Thornton & Cleveleys raising £711.00 the best yet!

In March we held a St. Patricks Day Pre-Swimarathon Dance raising a further £99.50 and of course our biggest event of the year our Swimarathon which raised and incredible £7,000.00. We also raffled several Easter Egg Hampers again across various locations raising £393.30

In May we held the Presentation night for all the charities that took part in the Swimarathon Event and from the raffle we raised £96.00. Also in May we were able to again partake in the Mustard Seed Group Fun Day raising £75.00.

Finally in early June the items left over from the Mustard Seed Tombola were put into a hamper and raffled at the River Wyre to assist the landlord in raising funds for a local defibrillator raising a total of £102.00

 

Almoners Report (PK):

Firstly there was Barbara’s swelling on her leg which at the time was a worry and there was a problem with Mavis which as I remember was palpitation of the heart in both cases the outcome was good.

Next was the loss of Mike Glennon. Pam and I visited him in hospital he had his old problem fluid on the lungs he looked well and was later discharged from hospital.The day after he was discharged I went round to see him but there was no reply I rang the hospital to see if he had been readmitted to the hospital, they said he had not but they would check with the paramedics only to find that Mike had passed away in the night. Mike was a gentleman and will be greatly missed. Then there was Cyril who had a chest infection and at the time was very ill. Our friend Bernadette was next she also had a bad chest infection which in turn had serious effects on her heart she was put on a life support machine but as time went on she began to deteriorate and the machine was switched off. Our friend Donald was taken ill after a fall and thankfully he did manage to recover and attend our changeover, it is good to see him. Finally Ian Clare was taken ill he had lost his balance and his speech was slurred .I took him for a blood test at Victoria Hospital on the Monday but he was admitted into hospital on the Wednesday for tests. I went with Pam to see Ian he was in good form. The doctors suspected a stroke but more tests were needed.

President’s Report (PH):

 

President Pamela gave her final Presidential Report. She told the Meeting that the year had flown by and she had thoroughly enjoyed her year of office.  It had been an amazing adventure.

 

Over her year of office she had met new friends and caught up with old ones. She had attended numerous Meetings, Charters and the Convention at Kendal.

There were three things that particularly stood out:

1        Judging the children’s Fancy Dress at Fleetwood Carnival

2.       Attending the unveiling of the statue of Sir Peter Hesketh in Fleetwood

3.       And, perhaps best of all, her attendance at Buckingham Palace in February to meet with the Countess of Wessex – in celebration of Lions Centenary

 Ironically, the President said that her year would probably be remembered for being the year the Club, sadly, lost the most Members.

1.       Although she was no longer a Member at the time of her death, Sonja Hawkins was included in this list. Sonja was a member for a long number of years and only resigned because she knew she was suffering from what turned out to be a terminal illness.

2.       Mike Glennon – again lost to Higher Service. The President had been to see Mike with Lion Paul in the hospital just before he died. He was so looking forward to his 90th birthday later in the year. Sadly he never made it.

3.       Perhaps the greatest shock of all was the loss of Bernadette Williams.  She was the Widow of one of the Club’s Founder Members Les.

          Bernadette had joined Fleetwood & Cleveleys after Les had died, and had been a valued Member of the Club in the years since. 

 

 

 

Other Members lost during the year were:

1.       Alan Day to Kirkham

2.       Sue McEvoy to Scotland to be nearer to her family

3.       Ian Cherry who had recently resigned due to continuing problems with his eyesight

 

The President then offered her warmest congratulations to Lion Margaret Purcell on being installed as the Incoming President of Fleetwood & Cleveleys Lions. The Club was lucky to have her.
