Caistor and District Lions Club held its annual handover at the Swallow Inn, when Ron Lyus, pictured above right, took on the role of President.

He received the chain of office from outgoing President Martyn Kemp, who thanked all the Lions for their support throughout, what had been, a successful year for the club.

Over the past year, the Caistor club has seen membership increase by 20 percent, bucking the national trend for Lions clubs, which has seen numbers falling.

Martyn attributed Caistor’s success to a strong sense of local community spirit and people wanting to become involved.
