A POPULAR member of Morpeth Lions Club has received a prestigious award.

Current President Dave Wheeler recently had the privilege of presenting the Lions Clubs International Foundation Gold Pin for 2010/11 to Past President Chris Offord.

Mr Wheeler said: “I have great pleasure in presenting you with this gold pin. This honour is a mark of the club’s appreciation of your leadership over the past year.”

In typically modest fashion, Mr Offord replied: “I am greatly aware of the honour the pin represents and thank all club members, your wives and partners for giving me your support over the past year.

“We have achieved a great deal collectively and I am mindful that much of this would not have been possible without the generosity of our community.”
