Lion President Mark hands chain of office over to Lion Eric.

At an alternative Handover Meal, Lions and partners braved the less than ideal June weather to enjoy each others company and a barbeque hosted in the garden of Lion Devan. Lions Mark and Charles manned the barbeques to cook/incinerate the more than generous supply of kebabs, chicken, burgers and sausages. All the Lions guests had brought along further food to add to the feast.

Lion Eric in his role as outgoing Social Chairman entertained us with a humorous poem describing the past year in rhyme. Then in his role of incoming President Eric presented the outgoing President Mark with a thank you gift for his two year period in office. Mark thanked the Lions for their support and help during what had been a challenging time for the Lions over Covid.

It just remained for Mark to hand over his Chain of Office to Eric and wish him all the best in his new position.

Having had the hottest June day for decades, yesterday, we found the temperature dropping dramatically and displaying true British grit, we all retired indoors.

Thanks are due to Devan and his wife Bridget for making his garden and house available and for hosting a very enjoyable day.
