ON behalf of Shirley Lions Club I should like to thank all the residents of Shirley, Solihull Lodge and Dickens Heath who contributed so generously to this year’s Christmas sleigh collection. In the run up to Christmas we managed to collect the magnificent sum of £5,685, which will be used to fund a number of local, national and international Lion’s projects. I must also express our thanks to Sainsbury’s, Tesco’s, Toys R Us and Stratstone Land Rover for their support as without their help such fundraising would not be possible.
I would also like to apologise to all the elderly residents of Shirley who were so looking forward to attending our annual New Year party at the Shirley Community Centre last Saturday. Unfortunately we had to make the decision to cancel the party as the snow and ice made it simply too dangerous for them to attend. However we are currently in discussions with the Shirley Community Centre to re-arrange the date.
