ONE of Todmorden’s long-standing volunteer groups is set for a busy spring.

Todmorden Lions have two of their key annual events in the spring.

The club’s 32nd Charter Dinner will be held at Walsden Cricket Club, Scott Street, on Saturday March 5, and club members will celebrate with civic heads, guest speakers and other guests from 7pm.

This year’s Duck Race has been pencilled into the diary for May 1, with the individually numbered plastic race ducks going “on sale” several weeks prior to the big day.

In the meantime, the Lions’ own DVD programme The Lions Story is being screened from February 28 to March 4 on the Community Channel and Lion Albert Blackburn says it is a great chance to see how the Lions movement developed and the work they do for their communities.

The channel is available on Sky 539, Virgin Media 233, Freeview 87 and BT Vision. It will have screenings at 9am and 3pm on February 28 and March 3, with 4am screenings on March 1 and March 4.

Locally, anyone wanting to find out more about the Lions can contact Albert on 01706 813168.
