Bedworth lions  -   During & After the COVID Crisis

During the crisis it has been very different, whilst offering our usual support to individuals & families in need we have been involved additionally supporting the packing, delivery & supply of food parcels for several local organisations.
Our meetings have been virtual, on line & by telephone making some of our work quite difficult.
We cancelled the Civic Bonfire in the miners Welfare Park in accordance with government guidelines.
