MEMBERS of Holmfirth and Meltham Lions Club celebrated 31 years of their establishment at the annual charter dinner.
Ex-prison governor Graham Smith was this year’s speaker and entertained the 50 guests with humorous anecdotes. The district governor for the Lions Club Mr Ian Thornhill and his wife Rosemarie, along with a couple of other representatives from neighbouring branches, also joined the dinner at Durker Roods, Meltham.
Club president Steve O’Leary said: “The dinner was a great success and everybody enjoyed the food and the service.
“The Lions Club raises money for all types of local, national and international charities. We also do services within the community for example we will plant trees or provide a service that will benefit the community.”
The Lions Club is open to both men and women of all ages. Anyone interested in joining can contact branch secretary Malcolm Howlett on 01484 852768.
