When Clitheroe Lions Club member Alan Clifford agreed to become president of the club for two consecutive years in June 2016 he would not have expected the handover for his second year of office to be as unusual as it was.

And our photograph captures the unique moment when “Alan Clifford” installs Alan Clifford.

Vice President John Wilkinson, who had arranged this unconventional and amusing handover, is looking on.

The club met for the ceremony at the Atrium Restaurant in the castle grounds and had an excellent meal there preceding the event.

Clitheroe Lions Club had another successful year in 2016/2017 and Alan said he was looking forward to an even better year in his second year of office which ends on July 1st, 2018.
