Could you be a “Friend of Lions”?
Many of the events we organise take more manhours to cover than our existing club has available via our members meaning that we can only carry these out with the support of our Friends group. This group of people are simply folks who are willing to give a few hours when available to help the club. They have no desire to become part of the Lions organisation however they are public spirited enough to offer their help when they are free to do so and we inevitably manage to obtain the numbers we need.
If you are reading this and feel that you could, perhaps, respond to an appeal for a few hours in our time of need, please go to our and simply say “Add me to your Friends” – it couldn’t be easier.
On Friday evening, 22nd November at the Expanse Hotel, Bridlington Lions Club celebrated a very special event, it has been fifty years since the club started in Bridlington.
The toast master and organiser for the evening was Lion John Bayne. After a delicious three ncourse meal, speeches were given by :- Mr Martin Helbrow, Chairman of Bridlington Round Table. – Lion John Hall MJF, District Governor for District 105C. – Lion Eileen Sunderland, President of Bridlington Lions Club and Lady Hermoine Vincenci-Trembling, from Slowly Crumbling on the Wolds, a very amusing speaker and sister of Bridlington Lions Club President.
After the speeches, presentations were given by Lion John Hall DG, they where :- ‘Long Service Award’ to Lion John Pudsey. – ‘District Governors Banner’ to Mr Martin Helbrow. – An ‘Oak Plaque’ to celebrate 50 years of the Bridlington Lions Club and a ‘Framed List’ of past Bridlington Lions Club presidents to Lion President, Eileen.
During the evening there were two excellent raffles and a chance to have a special commemorative photograph taken by Paul Atkinson. The evening attended by members of many other clubs finished with a lot of reminiscing and dancing to a live band, a truly memorable occasion.
A Journey through English and Italian Cultures told through poetry.

Another enjoyable afternoon for the elderly at St.Johns Burlington Church (SJB). They were entertained by five girl members of the Remarkable Theatre run by Mark Howley.
They also enjoyed a delicious buffet prepared by Janet Abbott and Lion Keith Abbott and a very entertaining bingo session run by Lion Mike Plawecki.
The afternoon was compared by Lion Phil Duke who was also organiser in partnership with Lion Trevor Balderson. Lion President Eileen Sunderland thanked everyone that helped.
The 2013 Christmas newspaper published by the Bridlington Lions has just been printed.
We would like to thank all the advertisers and individuals who each year make the newspaper possible.
The newspaper is delivered to most homes in Bridlington.
Here is an online version of this years edition – best viewed at full screen:
This years fireworks display:
Here is a video which was taken of the fireworks last year by a dad and his son Joshua.
On Saturday the Bridlington Lions hosted the 2013 Bonfire and Fireworks display.
Hundreds of people braved the wind and occasional rain and watched a fantastic display of fireworks.
The event was opened by Bridlington Mayor, Terry Dixon who helped light the fire.
During the last week, Headlands School held a competition to create the best guy. All entries were put on the bonfire.
We would like to thank all those that left the warmth of their homes and joined us at Limekiln Lane.
The show has been moved to the first Saturday in November to make it easier for people to attend the event.
With a professional display of over £4,000 worth of fireworks, food and refreshments, the Lions hope to make the 2nd of November one to remember for all the family.
“We are sticking to the same formula that has proved such a success over the years,” said Peter Jay of the Lions Club, “We don’t do it as a fundraiser for us, it’s quite the opposite really. It’s more of a community project and we just hope that everyone turns out and enjoys themselves. It’s certainly a lot safer than people setting fire to things in their own back garden!”
This year we will be having tea and coffee, hot dogs, burgers and a stall selling brandy snap and candy floss type food and lots of spinny flashy things to make for an evening to enjoy for all the family.
Gates open at 5pm and the bonfire will be lit at 7pm with the fireworks display beginning at 7.30pm.
The cost of entry is £2 per adult, children £1 with children under 5 years of age getting in free. We encourage you to come to the Lions Bonfire and have a great safe time and. Parking is free.
The public are encouraged to bring firewood to Limekiln Lane between 8am and 11am on 2nd November. Unfortunately the Lions are unable to collect any bonfire material from peoples homes.
