Morpeth Lions entertain the elderly

The Band - Just Us

The Band – Just Us

The Lions’ annual Christmas Party for senior residents of Morpeth took place again at the Riverside Lodge. Around 140 senior citizens attended and were treated to live entertainment, bingo and tea. The guests were joined by the Mayor, Cllr Andrew Tebbutt who made a point of circulating round to chat with the guests and joining in the carol singing. Entertainment was supplied by the band “Just Us” with a repertoire of Christmas songs and carols and by singer, Lewis, who got the guests tapping their feet or in some cases dancing. As usual prizes were given to the oldest gentleman and lady present.

Lion President, Chris Offord, thanked all those for making the afternoon a success. Those thanked included Liz and Bill Durning of the Riverside for providing the room, crockery and staff, the entertainers Just Us and Lewis, the Guides for helping serve tea, the St Johns Ambulance, the Lions Wives and Partners for providing the food. The Mayor, Andrew Tebbut praised the work of the Lions and said he himself hoped to put time in visiting the elderly in Morpeth. Lion President Chris Offord said “It has been a magnificent effort by all concerned and in particular by event organisers Lions Margaret Trewick and John Gray, by Joy Offord and Anne Gray for organising the food and by Lion Harry Cone for compering the afternoon.”

As the guests left the concert room, there were a lot of happy faces and much thanks to the Lions. Most were already looking forward to next year.
