    Derwent Lions Summer concert for Ukraine

    Derwent Lions Club’s next big event is a summer concert, this year a Concert for Ukraine, raising money for the Disasters Emergency Committee Humanitarian appeal. Attached is a poster advertising the event.

    We have been lucky to sign up two excellent performers, the choir and the band and are hoping for a big response in ticket sales. If anyone wants tickets then happy to be contacted and arrange this.

    Message in a Bottle

    This is a voluntary scheme for anybody living at home, who might be reassured to know that essential information would be readily available to the Emergency Services – not only to identify you, but to advise on relevant illnesses, allergies, medicaiton and contact addresses should you suffer an accident or sudden illness.
    The ‘bottle’ contains a sheet which you complete with all your details plus a sticker to go on the outside of your fridge and the inside of your front door alert the Emergency Services and you pop the ‘bottle’ in your fridge with completed details.
    If you feel this would be good for you – please contact us or South Milford Surgery – we will be happy to supply you with a pack.

    Scouts’ Christmas collection

    We read about the toy appeal from Sherburn Scouts who are distributing to families in the area. We have gone out and bought presents for all age groups. They’ll be dropped off at the Scout Hut in the day. Hope it makes the children happy at Christmas

    Been to drop our gifts off at the Scouts hut . Must say they have done really well with their collection. Well done!
