Shirley Lion Eric retires

Lion Eric retires“Longstanding Shirley Lion, Eric Morris recently retired from Lionism owing to ill health. The members felt that Eric’s retirement should not pass without an acknowledgement and expression of gratitude for all the work he put in over the years where he was our Used Spectacles Officer. In fact Eric collected the truly magnificent sum of 89,760 pairs of spectacles, a figure we imagine cannot be bettered across the District (unless of course we hear otherwise ). To mark the occasion Lion President Martin Wright presented Eric with a bottle of his favourite malt whiskey and a framed photo of him with just a few of his spectacles. We wish him well in his retirement.”
