At a recent lunch held at the Wellshurst Golf Club, the Hailsham Lions’ outgoingpresident John Ward, presented the chain of office to incoming president Gerry


She will serve in this position for one year.

As one of his last duties, John presented three annual awards to members of the Lions Club.

The first award was presented to Chris Millen for his continued hard-work and organisational skills as quartermaster.

The second was to Frances Baker for her excellent work in organising the 2013 It’s A Special Knockout event, held at Bedes School.

The third award, a wooden spoon, was presented to a Lion who continues to entertain with his foot-in-mouth moments – Ken Gray!

President Gerry intends to continue upholding the Lions’ motto – ordinary people, amazing things – during the next 12 months, with the help of her vice-president Keith Shonfeld MBE.

Plans are already progressing for the continuance of fund raising activities, including a huge presence over the Christmas period, and another country fair in June 2015.

Gerry will be raising money for international disasters and local good causes.
