ALL PLANNED EVENTS CANCELLED PENDING RELAXATION OF COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS

FAREWELL TO DORIS RENTON - WED 11TH MARCH 2021


Les Renton was a founding member of Wareham Lions nearly fifty years ago. Since he passed, Doris has continued to support the club and been an active member of the Ladies Group. Sadly she passed shortly after reaching her 100th birthday and the club passes it condolences to her family for their loss. In view of current Covid restrictions number who could attend her funeral were limited so club members opted to honour her cortege as it passed over Wareham Bridge:

RICHARD and INGRID WEAVER WAREHAM LIONS CLUB PRESIDENT 2020 - 2021


Richard and Ingrid Weaver




What do I as president hope to achieve this year?

Firstly to get through this horrible pandemic with the club intact.
The next thing will be try and keep the club afloat money wise, as we all know we have not been able to carry out any fund raising activities, so that may be a little difficult. Hopefully we will be able to run the swimarathon but that is in the lap of the gods. I have high hopes for our seniors Christmas party and our charter but again we shall have to see.
Yours in Lionism
