Swaffham Lions making friends in the Caribbean
Whilst away on holiday Dennis and Pam Tallon, who are stalwart members of the Swaffham and District Lions club, met Michelle Loubser who is the customer loyalty manager for the Princess Cruise shipping line.
The couple were on the Princess Caribbean and they met Michelle on New Year's Eve, so it was great way to end the year.
Mr Tallon said: "We were on a 14-day cruise around the Caribbean sailing from Fort Lauderdale, we always carry a bannerette in case we meet some other Lions.
"She recognised the Lions International logo on our face masks and told us that her mum and dad, Andrea and Nico, were both Lions in her home town of Bredasdorp, South Africa which is about 130km from Cape Town with a population of 10,500."
Michelle was thrilled when Lion Pam Tallon handed over a Swaffham Lions Bannerette to give to her parents.
Pam took time out to explain the history of the Pedlar of Swaffham who appears on the bannerette.
