Fifth time as Sidmouth Lion president for Ian

Ian is new Lion’s Club president for Sidmouth

FOR the fifth time, Ian Skinner has become president of the Lions Club of Sidmouth.

At a Lions Club supper last Saturday, Ian (pictured left) received the chain of office from outgoing president Roger Keylock, who held the post for two years.

The first time Ian served as president of the club was in 1992/3.

One of his main objectives for the year is to recruit, by invitation, new members and asks Sidmouth Herald readers: “Have you reached the stage in your life where you would like to put something back into your community?

“If your answer is YES, maybe now is the time to consider joining your local Lions Club!”

If you would like to know more about Lions activities, call Ian on (01395) 512923 or speak to a Lion in the gazebo at the start or finishing points of the Lions’ Great Duck Derby in The Byes on Sunday, July 18.
