Emmie Beckitt performs with Katherine Jenkins

Last weekend Emmie Beckitt was a support singer for the Katherine Jenkins concert at the Blue Bell in Burton Agnes.

Bridlington Lions are very lucky because Emmie is also a regular performer at the social events that we lay on for older members in our community.

We say well done, and thank you.

A group from Bridlington Lions helped make North Beach and an area near Dukes Park tennis courts a cleaner place. Taking pride is one thing that we like to have in our town, so every little helps.

Car Boot Sales

We hold our car boot sales on the first Sunday of the month on the cliff top between Sewerby and Bridlington. Entrance to the field is from Sewerby Road through a gateway which is opposite Sewerby Grange, and next to the Bondville Model Village.

As usual there is no need to book as we have a huge field for you to use. The field overlooks the sea, and across to Bridlington and is probably one of the best locations for a car boot sale.

There will be refreshments and snacks available at all the car boot sales.

Gates will be open from 8am and customers are encouraged to attend from 8am where parking will be £1.00 for a car. 

The cost of a car or van will be £10.

All day parking is available for a small charge per car with all proceeds from stalls and parking going to the work that the Lions Club in Bridlington carries out.

Stalls cost £10 per car.

If you would like further information then send an email to or call Simon on 07749 818095.

Lions Sponsor Guide Dog Training


The Lions celebrated the presentation of a cheque for £2000 in The
Promenades to Mrs Samantha Bradley of the Guide Dog Association by Eileen
Sunderland the President of the Bridlington Lions.

Mr George Wiles and his new dog TJ a 2year old Golden Retriever have been
together since February 7th when the previous dog Murdoch, who has come to
the end of his working life, retired for a well earned rest in Wales

Bridlington Lions have sponsored TJ to replace Murdoch the sponsorship
involved training, food and board as well as veterinary fees and was a big
commitment over the last two years and the cheque was a contribution towards
this training and development.

The Lions were also able to promote the importance of good eye health which
involves regular eye tests at the local opticians as well as the Message in
a Bottle which is a free scheme to encourage Bridlington residents to keep a
list of all their medication so that if there was an emergency at home or in
the car the paramedics could immediately see what medicines the person was
