On Wednesday 29th May, teams from the Zone:- Withernsea, Driffield, Holderness, Hornsea, North Wolds and Bridlington attended the meeting when reports were given by each club on
their years activities. This was followed by sandwiches and chips. Then a light hearted quiz that included a caption competition, 20 questions on Great Britain and 4 photographs taken from unusual angles to be identified.
Also included in the evening was a talk on Welfare Break Centres given by Jane Heaton, Assistant Manager from Alderson House; a raffle organised by Lion Mark Prescott and a Teddy Bear auction given by 1st Vice President Eileen Sunderland. It was very refreshing to listen to good conversation and laughter throughout the evening.
The winning trophy went to Hornsea and the Bottom Trophy went to Holderness. The event was organised by Bridlington Lions Club President David Sutton and Zone Chairman Lion Ernest Oldfield.

Do you have soft toys to spare? Can you spare some for a good cause?
Bridlington Lions Club is looking forward to their annual Carnival held on Sunday 4th August. To help with the fund raising the Lions are holding a soft toy tombola and need lots to help raise funds for worthy causes.
Fundraiser Simon Gregson said: “Many people have soft toys that they no longer need, or their children have grown out of. Soft toys are a great way for the club to earn extra funds at the Lions Carnival in summer. There must be lots of teddies and soft toys that are going unloved, and we would like to them to have new homes.”
‘‘Donating any soft toys that are not needed would be very welcome indeed.”
“The Bridlington Lions Carnival is the biggest fund raiser of the year, and we hope that the addition of the new soft toy tombola will help us to raise even more money for worthy causes.” said Simon.
Anyone wishing to donate soft toys can either leave them at the Bridlington Lions Bookshop on the Prospect Arcade or phone Simon Gregson on (07770) 280164 to arrange their collection. An email can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting collection.
When our well behaved president went back to school today the Headteacher, Mrs Tadman of New Pasture Lane Primary School was so impressed with his good behaviour, politeness and a constant
happy smile, she decided to present him with a special badge and allowed him to leave school early.
On Friday 3rd May Lion President Dave Sutton accompanied by 1st Vice President Eileen Sunderland and Lions Peter Jay and Mike Plawecki visited New Pasture Lane Primary School for the official presentation of six new bicycles for the use of the pupils. The presentation took place during the schools Praise Assembly.
As a surprise for the children ‘Alfie’ our cuddly and loveable Lion joined in with the
assembly creating a lot of fun and laughter. The children were so polite and a joy to be with, a credit to the school.
