Changeover 2017

Battle and Villages Lions Club held their Annual Changeover Lunch at the Plough Inn in
Crowhurst, attended by all the Clubs members and a number of guests, on Sunday 9th July, at which the outgoing President, Lion Rod Eldridge, handed over the chain of office to the incoming president, Lion Paul Webb.

Lion Rod was congratulated on his successful year in office, which saw the Club organise it’s biggest ever event, “The 10066 Way to Battle” cross country race to celebrate the 950th anniversary of the battle, and raised record sums for the Club’s Charity Account. In handing over the baton to Lion Paul he congratulated him and wished him equal success, primarily in donating the large sum charitable account which Lion Paul now has to dispose of to local youth and similar groups.

The Club has already commenced this with a donation of money to buy a whiteboard for a school at Robertsbridge and the setting up of “The Battle Lions Centenary Fund” to celebrate the 100 years of Lionism in Britain, which spans both presidents years, which time over the last 100 years has seen the Lions become the biggest international service organisation in the world. Lion Paul, in responding congratulated Lion Rod on his year and looked forward to not only continuing with the clubs social and fund raising activities, but also spending the funds accumulated for the benefit of the people, and particularly youth, in the Battle and Villages area who so generously support them.
