Shelter Box
With so many natural - and man made - disasters in our world, we decided to sponsor two Shelter Boxes.
Here is a picture of the cheque presentation to David Glover from Shelter Box.

Carnival Princess

We now have our Carnival Princess and her attendants;  Emily Tripp (centre) will be the Princess, with Tilly Young (left) and Verona-May Peters (right) her attendants.
We had six aspiring princesses yesterday evening and they were all brilliant!  A hard job for the judges, Jan Meakin our incoming Lions President (pictured), Carol from Lawsons and Leanne from the Tavistock Times Gazette.  Thanks to everyone!


Trees of Light
As well as lighting up Bedford Square at Christmas time, the Trees of Light are a lovely way of remembering loved ones. Lights are sponsored and the money raised goes to three charities who we choose each year. This year £6000 will be divided between CLIC Sargent - a children’s cancer charity, Marie Curie and Parkinsons Uk with a further £900 from Gift Aid.
Remembrance Day
We were very pleased to support the royal British Legion by closing the roads for the silence....

Sensory Garden....

Work goes on!!
