Bedworth Lions Club

On Sunday 17th July Bedworth Lions Club hired a coach from Harringtons Vintage Coaches to celebrate our President Change Over Day. This was a change over from Lion Alan Turner to Lion Eric Tunnicliffe. We had a tour of Warwickshire visiting many villages, a garden centre and lunch at a pub. There was a running commentary from Bob the Driver which was not only informative but very amusing. The public joined in waving and horns blowing as we passed by. The coach was a Bedford OB and went into service the year I was born in 1948. At a mere 27 horse power pulling over 20 passengers, with built in sound effects of gear wine and the smell of hot clutch and brakes. The attached are photos of the day. The pictures are of the coach, Eric the new driver of our club and one with Alan and finally the group on the day. It was a very enjoyable day and a great way to mark Change Over.
