If you have followed or participated in the Young Ambassador Competition, you may recognise the young man in the photo. Ben Ray from Ross on Wye represented the District in the MD Competition this year and was awarded the ‘Ship Shape’ bursary. Since then the club has maintained contact with Ben and he has helped at fundraising events through the spring and summer. Ben has just completed his ‘A’ Levels and will be staying in Ross for a year – so it was obvious that he should be asked if he would like to join the Club. Ben was badged up this month and is (currently) our youngest member! Ben may not stay in Ross for ever – he hopes to go to University next year – but he is now a Lion and can take his membership to wherever he lives at any time in the future. Ross already has 2 student members who remain in contact during University holidays and via the internet (especially our I.T. Officer Jez who maintains our website from his student flat!) So welcome Ben – it’s great to have you on the team!
