New Lions Clubs are started, usually, by a neighbouring club identifying an area where a club could be. Bromgsgrove, 6 miles from Droitwich decided that they could start a club in the town which was expanding. There was a club in Worcester and Droitwich was halfway between it and Bromsgrove. So the chap above who lived in Droitwich but was a member of Bromsgrove became what is known as the guiding Lion.
Alec Little was a legend. He was a maverick who could be both infuriating and loveable. His wife Gwen was one of the nicest people I have known. Sadly neither of them is still with us but I have many memories of them.
