As part of our Lions Club social activities we visited the famous Bletchley Park Heritage centre on Saturday 7 April. For those of you who do not know anything about it this site was the wartime work place of some of the cleverest people who ever lived . They "broke" the secret codes of our enemies during World War 2 and thereby shortened the war.

Each year we get together with other local Lions clubs to host a day specifically designed for disabled people of all ages and their families. This unique environment enables participants to get the most from the attractions and participate in activities they might not normally try, and which many of us take for granted. The extra time and support that is available to them makes a huge difference, and this day is considered by many of our members to be their favourite in our calendar of community support activities.
If you believe that you, or someone you know, might benefit from attending this event next year please contact us so that we can make sure an invitation is sent at the appropriate time next year.
