This little lion was lost and all alone. No one wanted him. Then he was found by Danny who took him home and looked after him. Danny called him Lester Lion. Danny gave him his own cap and scarf so he could collect badges from the places they visited. Together they have travelled all over the British Isles and Europe following the Lions and other top riders.

Wow. Lester arrived at the stadium to watch the Final 2nd leg to be told that he would be going to watch it from the box. Only special people go there. The view was great.

Sallyann was having a party but poor old Martin was working on the track.


Wow, Wow, Wow. We have only gone and won the Championship Shield. 

Now on to the playoffs which of course the big Lions will win.

Come on you Lions.


I think we celebrated too much,  The photo wasn't the only thing that was blurred.

Saturday 14th September

Lester would have gone to Eastbourne to see the Lions in their Final 1st leg match but Danny was the best man at a very important wedding. He went to the Registry Office to see Martin and Sallyann get married. They, along with the two best men (Danny and Chris) were going to fly into the reception in special aircraft. 

Lester checked them out to see they were OK. He was so disappointed when they told him that lions could not go in the plane. He went by car to the reception and saw that the planes arrived safely which they did. What a lovely sunset. Lester arranged it specially.
