Maidstone Lions celebrated their 63rd Charter at the Cornwallis Suite in Tovil on Sunday 25th February. 89 guests attended, with the Mayor and Mayoress of Maidstone attending as guests of honour.

After enjoying a delicious three course Carvery lunch, they were entertained by two wonderful singers from Leading Lights productions who misled guests into thinking that they were Head Chef and Head of Banqueting at the venue, before revealing themselves as stars of the West End stage.
