District Governor David had a surprise of his own, when he brought greetings from Lions Clubs International President Barry Palmer. He presented the club with a framed copy of its original Charter, the original having been lost some years ago. Following an address by the Mayor of Thatcham, Councillor Gary Johnson, and a toast to the club, Lion Adrian Ho was duly installed as President for the forthcoming Lionistic year.
The evening continued with dancing and it was no surprise that everyone had an enjoyable time!
Lion Margot Payne presided over her first meeting and one of her first duties was to present a cheque to West Berkshire Homeless charity.
Fancy some fabulous music from Newbury's own Brass Band?
Then come and spend an afternoon at the fete, where you will hear
Watership Brass (The Newbury Town Band)
They will be performing a mixture of good old fashioned brass band music plus modern arrangements of family favourites.
Why not have a cup of tea, a slice of cake, listen and relax!
