The membership of the Lions Club of Morpeth is getting even younger…or at least the average age is!
Since the beginning of this year the Club has welcomed four new members, the latest two having joined last Tuesday. This is good news for the Club for a number of reasons. Firstly the health of the Club is enhanced by the skills of the new members, then there is their enthusiasm and also their ideas.
For many years the Morpeth public has seen the same ‘old’ faces undertaking the activities for which the Club is well known – not that there is any diminishing of these members’ keenness. Over the past eighteen months there has been a sharp increase in membership and ideas for enhancing the Club’s commitments of service to our community which now include environmental concerns such as helping with litter picking and extending our involvements in Carlisle Park, assisting with local orienteering events and there are some suggestions still being considered.
One area where there were shortcomings on the part of many members is the ever-present ‘Social Media’. Fortunately a number of the new members have expertise in this field and thus The Lions Club of Morpeth now has a regularly updated website and facebook page. These include a ‘Donate’ button and an ‘Easyfundraising’ link. The pages in themselves have generated additional interest in the Clubs activities and enquiries about how one becomes a Lion. Additionally for those members wishing to update their knowledge on social media, new member Andy Bateman will shortly be holding a Masterclass.
So it is ‘all systems go’ for Morpeth Lions and its future.
