New President for Tonbridge Lions Club

Tonbridge Lions Club’s new President Keith Bourne with predecessor Mike Stout

On Sunday June 30 Keith Bourne was inaugurated as the sixty-fourth President of Tonbridge Lions Club.  Outgoing President, Mike Stout, presented Keith with the chain of office at a luncheon at Nizels Golf Club.

Keith has lived in the Tonbridge area for most of his life. With three children, two grandchildren and married to Valerie he still gets time to be involved with sports, music and of course the Tonbridge Lions Club which he is honoured to represent as President for the next 12 months.

Formerly a Logistics Manager and Engineer for B.T. followed by other interesting local jobs he is now retired, apart from occasionally acting a Dance Host on cruise liners with Valerie. They enjoy the company of their families and friends on visits to the theatre, local concerts and the Royal Opera House.

With a passion for racquet sports and a keen football fan, mainly following Gillingham FC, Keith is now revisiting his youth by playing table tennis.  Another of his pastimes is collecting old ‘Whitbread Inn signs’ which has resulted in much research!

His father was a founder member of the Tonbridge Lions Club in 1950 and Keith is now both privileged and proud to become President of this great club, and along with Valerie looks forward to the year ahead.
