Wetherby Lions Club held their sixth Beer Festival at the St James Church Centre, Wetherby last Saturday, starting at 12pm and we planned to finish when the beer ran out! We counted 450 adults, 104 children and 8 dogs coming through the door! There was a range of 20 carefully chosen beers by our expert, Irene of Wise Owls Consultancy for the dedicated beer drinkers. In addition we provided a Prosecco bar, a Cider Bar and a Soft Drinks counter for the children and non-drinkers, all run by Lions, partners and friends.
From past experience we know that serious beer drinkers soon need sustenance and our Lions ladies provided pies and peas to fill the gap, whilst outside there was a traditional BBQ run by Lions offering beef burgers, cheese burgers and sausages...
Lion President Robert Rolfe was delighted to welcome Joanne Hovell (pictured above) into Wetherby Lions Club at our last business meeting on Monday 23rd of May at the Bridge Hotel and Spa.
Joanne is a qualified Financial Advisor for a locally based business.
In our 50th year of giving service to the community, we recognize the vital importance of attracting younger members to enable the Club to continue to flourish. Joanne is the fifth younger member to join within the last year and we are confident that she will be an asset to the Club. We look forward to working with her and hope that she will have an enjoyable time with us.
