On Monday 12th March Lions Club International President Dr Wing – Kun Tam was at the National Arboretum in Alrewas. He was on a whistle stop tour to the UK between the 11th and 14th March.
We were very privileged to have him visit District 105BS.Whilst he was at our Lions Shelter he planted his 7th million and fifth tree ! He was told he would have to come back every week to water it !
Many members from our district were in attendance and gave I.P. Tam a warm welcome,the weather was extremely kind as well.It was a fabulous day.
Dr Tam said ‘I am so excited to come to England meet my family of Lions. When Lions believe in what they are doing they make it happen.’
If any of you have photos please send them on to Beverley Stanyer and she will put them on District 105BS Facebook page.

On Sunday 19th February members of the Lions Club of Llandudno and Maesdu Golf Club spent the morning planting 200 tree saplings around parts of the Maesdu golf course. This event was organised to coincide with the International President Wing-Kun Tam who is “challenging Lions around the world to plant one million trees this year to demonstrate the strength of our global network”.
The trees used on Sunday came from the Woodland Trusts Jubilee Woods project. The green keepers at Maesdu will over the coming weeks plant the remaining trees. In total 800 saplings will be planted. All visible by public from either the road, Llandudno hospital or the public footpaths which cross the greens.
Special thanks to the Mayor of Llandudno Councillor Greg Robins for attending the planting. Also many thanks to Measdu Club Chairman Richard Trigg, President David Sawyer, Men’s Captain Tony Jones and Ladies Captain Audrey Henderson.
From the Lions many thanks to District Governor Beryl Roberts, Environmental Officer John Vaughan, Lion President (Llandudno) Dennis Pearson, Zone Chairman Sandy Halliday.
