Members of Ponteland Lions once again hosted their annual “Meet the Lions” event in the Ponteland Memorial Hall on Saturday 16th March. The sun shone brightly as 120 senior residents from the local area, a few accompanied by carers, gathered for an afternoon’s entertainment. Sherry or juice was served on arrival, then an hour of music and singing was ably performed by the Ponteland Repertory Society. Guests were later served a delicious home-made afternoon tea, which was followed by a bingo session and a raffle.
The event forms a major part of Ponteland Lions’commitment to serving the local community and is always well attended and enjoyed by the audience.
Lions wish to thank the two St. John’s Ambulance volunteers who were on hand to offer assistance and also local businesses who generously donated raffle prizes.
