On Saturday 13th April, Lion Syd Walker (a Lion for many years) together with Denis, Andy and Gavin (new Lions members of the newly formed Rixton with Glazebrook Lions Club) were interviewed for a Radio 4 article about volunteering. Nigel asked Syd “why he had started the new Lions Club” and the conversation focussed around “being active within their own community and having a visual presence”.
Rixton with Glazebrook Lions Club has 17 new members and 4 transferring from nearby Warrington Lions Club. Radio 4 interviewed Lions members, District Governor Meg Philip (and husband Michael), members of the public and Mike Clipston (District Marketing & PR Officer) on the work of the Lions and the Lions Message in a Bottle project.
The radio article is archived online on the BBC website and is well worth a listen.
