On Saturday, the Weymouth and Portland Lions Club, in partnership with the Weymouth BID, held a Christmas town centre entertainment event: “Weymouth’s Christmas Present”. The day began with rain and more rain. By late morning however it was dry, happily the expected windy conditions didn’t materialise and the event was a great success.
The “new BID” was only formed a few months ago, but the Board wanted to get something in place for the start of Weymouth’s Christmas shopping experience. With not much time available they invited the Lions to organise it – with help from BID personnel and a few capable and enthusiastic supporters.
The final product included a wide range of brilliant entertainment provided by Weymouth’s exceptional local talent. We were all delighted with the result and extend our grateful thanks to all those who were involved, from organisers to helpers to performers, and to those who came along to join in the fun.
