This week Knowle and Dorridge Lions made the most of the good weather to inspect the 2 new benches which they have donated and had installed on Knowle High Street in recent weeks.
At the same time we took advantage of the visit of our Zone Chairman Lion Jaap de Jong to perform the handover of the chain of office from 5 times President Brian Burgess to new President Bob Thurtle
“It seemed to me there are plenty of bars, restaurants and coffee shops providing seating around Knowle but nowhere you can meet up, sit, and have a chat or watch the world go by – for free” says new President Bob. “We have provided these two in Knowle depicting 40 years of our Lions club 1976-2016 and 100 years of Lions Clubs International 1917-2017, (with two more to follow outside Dorridge Rail Station coming soon), with funding coming from our recent Knowle Fun Runs. We hope they will be used extensively as meeting points”
