Lion Alan Mercer has taken up the mantle of President of local charity, the Clacton on Sea Lions Club (CIO), for the second time this month having previously served as President in 2009-10. He is looking forward to a busy year and intends to enjoy every minute of it as the Club hopefully is able to get back to their usual activities as Covid restrictions are eased.
Lion Alan has lived in Clacton since 1978 having been born in Guildford and is a Carpenter/Joiner. He has been married to Judith for over forty years and they have two children; Hollie and Elizabeth. He lists taking part in quizzes as one of his pastimes and has previously appeared on The Weakest Link on BBC where Ann Robinson eventually gave him his marching orders. He also enjoys watching sports especially Crystal Palace FC and American Gridiron.
Lion Alan’s aim for his year as President is to ease the club back into fundraising and service activities and to be able to continue to support local and Lions’ charities as funds and circumstances permit. There will hopefully be a Prize Quiz Sheet on sale early in 2022.
