Another New Lion in Wetherby

New Lion Tim

Lion President John Boulton takes the latest recruit through the Lionistic investiture ceremony. Now Lion Tim, commented "it is with great 'pride' that I take on the role of a Wetherby District Lion and I look forward to serving the Club and the local community' in the coming years. Tim Ritson was born a Geordie but moved to Wetherby in 1978 having passed through High Wycombe to study Marketing Management and London to discover what the world of work had to offer in the big city. The attractions of the Yorkshire Dales outweighed the benefits of living in London. He has one wife, two daughters, one grandson and one blind dog.

For over fifty years Wetherby District Lions Club members have been helping individuals and organisations in times of need assisted by the generosity of the people of the Wetherby District.

Last year Club members had a tremendous time under the experienced leadership of Lion Martin Doxey with events such as the Wetherby Beer Festival, the Dickensian Christmas Market and most recently the Duck Race. We hope to continue with these events in the months to come however these events are only possible with the time and hard work given freely by ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
