Naming ceremony for NPS Lions minibus

THE NAMING ceremony for Newhaven Peacehaven and Seaford Lions Club’s minibus will take place on Saturday January 21.

It will be performed by Chris Clements, the partner of the late John Wilkinson, former president of the NPS Lions Club and former Head Teacher of Blatchington Court School for Visually Impaired children in Seaford.

The new vehicle will be named Wilko’s Wagon in his memory and the ceremony will be held at The Breakout Centre in Town Square.

Mayors from Seaford, Newhaven, Peacehaven and Telscombe Cliffs will attend.

Lions spokesperson Derek MacGarvie said: “As Newhaven is at the centre of our activities we felt it was the ideal place to hold this event.”
