10:00am Friday 1st November 2013 in Local news
A past president of Otley Lions is being remembered with a bench in the town.
Des Ellis, who died in 2011, had been a valued and popular member of the Otley Lions’ Club for many years. He was the club’s president from 1998 to 1999.
A spokesman said: “The Lions wished to commemorate Des by installing a dedicated bench in the town. In September the bench was finally completed and erected, just outside the Billams Hill entrance to All Saints Parish Church. The bench, as Des would have desired, is very sturdy and constructed to a high standard of craftsmanship.”
