Monday 1st June
Each year, we aim to visit a Lodge outside of England. 2019 saw us in Sweden, visiting a fantastic Lodge, and this year looks like a toss-up between Holland, Malta or Romania. Once confirmed, details will follow. Watch this space.
It is that time of year again where we install a new Worshipful Master, and all the officers of the previous year, move round a position, to ensure progression throughout the Lodge and to keep it democratised.
