The Wisbech Lions presented framed Lions Centennial Certificates of Appreciation to three people at the awards evening on January 10.

Maxine Woodhouse, from St Augustine’s Day Care Centre, was recognised for her outstanding contribution to those in her care.

David O’Connell from the Rose Tavern was praised for his continued generous support to the Lions Easter Egg appeal and Martin Holmes of J S Holmes Nissan dealer, who for many years has provided the 4x4 towing vehicle for Santa and his sleigh.

Steve Jarvis from the Jolly Fryer could not make the presentation. He and his team, every year, undertake a £1 in an envelope meal raffle.
