following the visit last September by 20 Russian Scouts and their leaders we have been presented with necker by the group as a way of thanks to Bridlington Lions. Pictured here is the outgoing President Les and incoming President Gordon receiving the necker.
On Saturday, June 20th we entertained some of the local community at St John Burlington.
Everyone had food and a tea or coffee. Entertainment was provided by local singer Emmie Beckitt and there was bingo. The bingo caller was Lion member Maggie.
Recently a new member of Lions Club was inducted.

This year the zone meeting took placeat the Forum in Bridlington. It took the form of a short meeting, a pie and chips supper followed by a ten-pin bowling competition. Excellent bowling
was displayed by the North Wolds Lions who finished up the winners. The evening was organised by PDG John Hall.
Recently Bridlington Lions presented funds for the purchase of a resuscitation manikin for the training of CPR.

On 14th April the Lions club supported a charity ride from the Allride bike store on North Promenade up to Sewerby Gardens to raise funds for another wheelchair loader bike.
The scheme is available for use by both Bridlington residents and holiday-makers alike. There are also a number of ordinary bikes for any family members or friends who wish to ride alongside the disabled riders.
Since the start of the of All Ride, Bridlington Lions have been very supportive of the efforts that have gone in to the scheme.
Another very enjoyable social that included a musical performance down memory lane given by ‘Brid Beat’. A very
tasty buffet prepared by our Lions and partners, and an amusing bingo session given by Lion Maggie Bunny.
