I am Married to Ian who is a Past District Governor and currently serving as LCIF Officer. Have one son Adam aged 38 (who is also a Lion) and is married to Layla. I became a Nanna to my first Grandchild William on the 31st December 2012 and my second Zackary born on the 24th August 2015...

I became a member of Worcester Lions Club in 2005. During my time in Lions I have been Tail Twister, an active member of the Projects Committee, Public Relations Officer, Welfare Committee and House & Social.  I did 3 years as Club President.

This is my 2nd year as Postmistress😉 for 105CW (although I have done it for many years previously) which is part of the Administration Team, and I love my role. I have also in the past been on the Committees for two Multiple District Conventions and one District Convention which was hosted by the zone. I was also been Convention Host Chairman for a District Convention hosted by Worcester Lions Club… I have also done the roles of webmistress, Newsletter Editor and Zone Chair.

As District Postmistress (Email Co-ordinator) it is my job to ensure that members get information passed on to them from Club, District, MD and International.  Anything for circulation to clubs please email me at postmaster@lions105cw.org.uk

Dursley Lions Club

This my 35th year serving our Communities with Lions Club of Dursley.

Joined in 1985, and was, with a fellow Lion Badged up by PCC Denis Legg, unfortunately no longer with us, but I miss him.

Have been Zone Chair a number of times, Region Chair, District Youth Officer, Sergeant at Arms twice, organised two District Conventions, 1994 and 2004, which we were told was the best and sorely missed. For those unaware, the Club has its own premises, which has been used for the storing and sales, weekly of household goods, all donated by our various local communities, and we use our own van to collect and for the deliveries of items purchased. Wanda and I are both subject to our second marriage, this one on 15th October, 1983. Leave you to do the maths. We have four children between us. Wanda’s a daughter Debs, husband Andrew, with granddaughter ELL (22), and grandson (18 this week). Her Son, married, Zoe, with two sons, Jo (17), and William (5 1/2).

Mine, daughter Marnee, married to Pete, with grandson Keelan (24), and granddaughter Cailin (22 just), and my Son Lian (Professor - Durham Uni), married (2nd) to Allie, with twin granddaughters Amy and Charlotte, both currently at Unis.

Have served 105W for four years as District Almoner, and about to start my second for 105CW.

It is a function I enjoy for two reasons. Firstly, I can hopefully show that Lions not only care for their Communities, but more specially for their Membership, and secondly, I am able to keep involved despite my age, and maintain contact with our many friends.

Spent nine years under the colours with the Royal Marine Commandos from 54 to 63, serving with 45 Commando in the Middle East, and later 62/3 with 42 out in the Far East.

Birmingham Chinatown Lions Club

When I'm not busy being a Lion, my mission in life is to keep my wonderful Wife from getting bored by livening up her day. I'm also the proud Father to

two amazing teenagers and owner of the two laziest greyhounds in history. I also enjoy messing around with guitars, although my ambition is far ahead of my actual ability.

I am the tail twister in the Birmingham Chinatown Lions, a proud member for over four years now and loved every second of it.

As Convention Chair, I face the challenge of creating an event for our new District Governor that continues our proud traditions in this new, uncharted era.

As a very young lion (in service terms if not age) I was asked to represent MD105 alongside the UK Ambassador representing DFID in the opening of a new facility in Bihac which is in the north west of the country.

Thanks to my clinical background as a Registered Nurse I am leading on the Vision Screening Project as MD (Multiple District) Officer. The District Governor has asked me to also be part of the team delivering the project across CW.

The project will involve Lions being upskilled to use a Vision Screening Camera and to help young people get the appropriate eye care they need by referring them into the NHS Optician Service.

Due to COVID19 this project has taken a pause as we are waiting for NHS England to grant the project permission to go ahead.

Melton Mowbray Lions Club

I am married to Christine who is also a Lion, we have a grown-up family with six Grandchildren all of whom are working.  Our family is spread across the country from Northamptonshire to Reading.

Twenty years ago, we joined Andover Lions Club and enjoyed our time with them being involved in the welfare committees and fund raising.  We left Andover Lions after four years when we moved to Portugal to live.  During our time there we had an association with the Lions Club but due to the distance we were away from the clubs in Portugal our visits were somewhat infrequent, but we did get involved volunteering at various functions.

Upon our return from Portugal, three years ago, we joined Melton Mowbray Lions Club where I am presently serving as Vice President and will continue to do so for another year.
