Coningsby and Tattershall Lions news

Craft fayre - The Coningsby/Tattershall Lions will be holding a Christmas Craft Fayre at the Lion’s Den in Silver Street on Saturday, November 21, from 10am to 1pm.

There will be a variety of stalls, craft, cakes, new books, raffle and refreshments.

There are a few spaces left for stalls outside at £4, depending on weather conditions.

All proceeds from the event are for Lion’s charities.

Christmas book sale - A new books sale will be held at the Lions Den this Sunday, November 22, from 9am to midday.

There will be many new books on offer at heavily discounted prices.

Refreshments are also available while you wander round and make your choice.

All proceeds from the sale will be for Lion’s charities.

Sight summary - Lion president Jackie Jewell welcomed 22 members to the recent meeting of Coningsby/Tattershall Lions Club, plus zone chairman Wally Goldspink, accompanied by Lion Judy Bee, both from Boston Lions.

The 100 club winners were Stan Avison, Alan Maltby and Alan Brown.

Everyone was thanked for their help and enthusiasm during Sight Awareness Week and quite a few received certificates of appreciation in the villages.

These included Kathy Roberts at Coningsby Town Council, Christine Tozer at the New Coningsby Surgery, Clinton Park School, Barnes Wallis School, the Co-op, Barracks Newsagents and Coningsby Book Shop.

Tattershall Primary School, New Street Surgery and Coningsby Town Office will all continue to collect unwanted spectacles for recycling.

Those helping at the New Coningsby Surgery with the second week of flu-jabs were also able to distribute their message in a bottle and plugsters.

The bottles contain a leaflet for medical and prescription details, plus stickers to show where the bottle is should the emergency services have to be called.

Plugsters are a simple and effective handle fixed to an electric plug to allow easier unplugging of appliances, particularly helpful to arthritic hands.

Both the bottle and the plugsters are available from local Lions and are free.

The club will be out and about with Father Christmas, his sleigh and reindeer, from December 4.

If anyone in the villages would like a visit from Santa, the Lions look after his diary while he is in this area and escort him around the streets.

Schools, clubs, parties and events, may like a visit of their own; to book, call Lion Anne on 01526 344594 as soon as possible.

Visits are free, but a donation to Lion’s charities would be appreciated.

Santa would always be happy to hand out prepacked gifts.
