Ruislip Lions attended Ruislip Manor Library 10 Year Anniversary

The Leader of Hillingdon Council  Cllr Ray Puddifoot with local MP Boris Johnson view the the Bagatelle table top game, which the club took to the library. They are seen here with the President of the club Phyllis and Chair of Services committee Fred. This turned out to be a very popular game with young people who enjoyed the hands on  game as opposed to their normal virtual experience with phones and tablets. Children and their parents from Newnham and Lady Banks Schools loved the non-techno bagatelle, “once you start on this game you don’t want to stop, you just want to keep raising your score” was the comment from one pupil, and it helps with mental arithmetic – this could be a Christmas stocking winner………. and not a mobile phone in site!!

Luckily for Ruislip Lions they did spot a real lion on their trip

Acorn club members clearly enjoyed the train trip as you can see by their smiles
As well as a lion the acorn club saw this magnificent tiger
