I cannot believe that we are approaching Easter already - it hardly seems any time since I was writing the Christmas News. This year we are once again raffling our giant Easter Eggs in local shops, pubs, restaurants and businesses. I am sure you are likely to come across one and if you do then please have a go and even if you don’t win, remember that all the money will be donated to good causes.

Just a quick date for your diaries – this year’s raft race will be held on Sunday 23rd July. In 2016, for the first time in many years, we had three mechanical class rafts enter the race. They were all trying to beat four times past class winner ”Simply the Best”, but were unsuccessful. So we are inviting engineers who can design and construct a raft powered by mechanical means to build a raft to challenge “Simply the Best”. You can use paddle wheels or even propellers in your design, which must be robust enough to navigate over two weirs. Chain drives and bicycle parts often work well in these situations. However we draw the line at engines and outboard motors. If you are up for this challenge then please contact Lion Charles Williams on 07590 387204 for more information.

We are getting closer to our Classic Gathering on 4th June. If you would like to bring along your classic vehicle to display, do get in touch via the website or Facebook (Wellesbourne Lions).

On behalf of all the Lions I would like to wish you all a Happy Easter .
