New Members would traditionally have joined every 2-3 years and retention was a problem.
In the last 3 years we have adopted a different approach, organising social evenings and get together’s, to meet our newer Brethren and their friends who might have an interest in Freemasonry.
This has resulted in 6 initiates and another 2 in the pipeline.
The Lodge has also changed the way we carry out Ceremonies, with the Apprentices taking part at every opportunity.
Our Charity Steward W Bro Williams is pushing everyone in supporting The 2020 Festival and for a small Lodge we are extremely pleased with the way it is going.
W Bro Steve James work with the Masonic Fishing Charity is currently in the spotlight at our Lodge events, and it is proving a clear insight into the work they do with deprived and disabled young people.
Our IPM W Bro Stephen Shepherd recently presented a cheque for £600 to the Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity, following a successful year as Master.
The monies raised as part of our charity collections and a well attended Ladies Evening in Bournemouth.
