Trowbridge Lions celebrated the Government's so-called 'Freedom Day' with an open evening to explain to the town what they did for the local community during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns.

Club president Richard Loverock presented a review in St James' Church Hall on Monday.

The event was staged to celebrate everything they did manage to achieve - and give thanks to residents.

Mr Loverock said: "Trowbridge Lions would like to say thank you to everyone who has supported us and the people of Trowbridge.

"As we start to recover from Covid and its effects on everyone locally we thought it would be good to review all we could not do and also celebrate everything we have achieved, only possible with the support of others."

Mr Loverock said the club was forced to postpone or cancel many fundraising events but managed to maintain soup kitchen evenings, helping people with the collection of medicines, and providing hampers for families in need.

Trowbridge Mayor Cllr Denise Bates attended and said she was impressed with what the Lions had achieved.

She added: "I am very impressed with the good work that the Trowbridge Lions carry out for the good of the Trowbridge community, and I hope that they will continue to do so.”
