A ball was held to celebrate 100 years of a popular community group.
Swaffham Lions invited 100 guests – including some people from other Lions clubs in East Anglia – to the event at Lynford Hall, near Thetford, to celebrate the centenary.
A three-course meal and a dancing disco was held, with the organisation also taking the opportunity to hold a ceremony to change its president.
John Collins handed over the reigns to Pam Tallon, with the new leader saying she was honoured to be the first female president of Swaffham Lions.
After thanking Mr Collins for his work during the first six months of the Lions’ centenary year, she went on to outline events that would take place during the course of the rest of the year.
