Littleport Lions Charter Meal
On 15th September 2019, The Lions Club of Littleport and their guests, who included New Century Lions, had their Charter Meal at the High Flyer pub in Ely.
The Mayor of Ely, Michael Rouse, gave a speech at the meal about the events he has attended during this year. He also spoke about fundraising for the Mayor’s charity. He praised the Lions for all their valuable work in the community.
Club member, Lillian Pettifor, was awarded Lion of the Year by the President Michael Stares. This was for all her hard work as the organiser, promoter and distributor of the ‘Message in a Bottle’ programme. This initiative is where members of the public are given a specially designed bottle to store medical information at home for paramedics to easily access in an emergency, which is funded by the local Lions Club.
Lastly, everyone enjoyed their Sunday roast and a raffle was held at the end of the meal where lots of people were delighted by their prizes.
On October 20th 2019, the Lions Club of Littleport attended the Mayor of Ely’s charity dinner. The Mayor of Ely has praised the club for their charity and community work. The Lions Club of Littleport has recently supported the local Scouts and Guides.
The months of November and December are a festive time for the club. The Lions steward the fireworks at The Grange, on 5th November, at Littleport every year. Also, Breakfast with Santa is being held at The Almonry Ely on 21st, 23rd and 24th Dec at 8am. This is a ticketed event which sells out every year by September.
The Lions Club of Littleport would like to thank and wish everyone a Merry Xmas. We look forward to helping our community again in the New Year. We also encourage new members to come visit us on the first Sunday of the month, 2pm, at the Adams Heritage Centre, Main Street, Littleport.
