Wetherby Lion members are delighted to donate £1,500.00 to support the local Wetherby project to build a ‘pump’ track.

The ‘Little Toe’ is now more or less complete with a bit of tinkering and gardening up still to do - however it needs time to harden and for the safety inspection to take place.

More here soon !

Lion members were pleased to recently donate £2,000 towards the cost for a mobile /handheld ultrasound machine which will make a real positive difference to the rural community around the Wetherby area.

This specialist machine will make a real difference in the speed and care for the elderly and infirm in our rural areas and also reduce the need for ambulance transportation costs taking patients to hospitals several miles away.  All training costs to use this specialist equipment have been met by the medical staff themselves.

It’s the Belly Dancers……practising a modern style of belly dance this American Tribal Style Belly Dance was inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East, North Africa, Spain and India.  It seems that there is no choreography, each dance is improvised.  The dancers learn moves and cue these in formations, communicating together through their movement…Wow !

Karuna Tribal Belly Dance is a new American Tribal Style troupe based in York, this is their first performance of the year together and we are very excited to have them here at the Wetherby Festival.  They will be dancing to some very traditional music  -  as well as to a few pieces you might recognise !

The children of Bramham Primary School can now travel to school on their scooters or bicycles in relative safety and, thanks to Wetherby District Lions Club and other supporters, they now have a safe, protective place to leave their scooters.
We were very pleased to support the school and help towards the cost of the erection of these new shelters where they can leave their scooters and bikes knowing they are safe and dry.
The photos show the children cutting the ribbon to open their shelter.
