Visit to St. Thomas Lodge No.5420 11th December  2018

W.Bro. Martyn Davies accompanied me on a visit St.Thomas's Lodge to see an Inititiation Ceremony.

We were invited by my great friend W.Bro. Paul Brown-King who recently had his first Provincial Appointment

as Provincial Grand Steward. The attached photograph show myself, Martyn, Paul and his two sons Charles and

Robert who we have seen initiated on previous visits.

The Initiate was Mr Jamie Alexander Skiggs aged 25 who a good friend of Charles who was Junior Deacon that evening

and his dad Paul acted as Senior Warden.

We had a great welcome and the work in the Lodger Room which differed from the ritual that we are used to but was

performed at a very high standard. Traditional Chistmas dinner at the Festive Board washed down real ale. port and whiskey

completed a great night amongst Northumbrian Freemasons.

A return visit from the Brethren of St. Thomas is planned for next year.

This year rather than have our Annual Ladies Night the Brethren decided that we should have a Christmas Charity Ball and Bros. Mike Southall and Darren Cresswell, two of the Junior Brethren volunteered to organise this event with help of their partners Maggie and Tracy. 

This was  a most enjoyable evening amongst friends old and new and £500 was raised  for our chosen  Charity "Primrose Hospice “

 These two Junior Brethren and their Ladies are to congratulated in organising such a wonderful evening and after this great success I am sure they will be involved in future social and charity events.

My great friend The Worshipful Brother Geoff Round, a Warwickshire Mason of Mozart Lodge No.3735  who sang the Ladies Song at my wife Sheila’s Ladies Night some 23 years ago returned and gave a powerful and moving rendition of the Ladies Song. The Lodge has also donated £50 Geoffs favoured Charity 

 The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund (Charity No. 10810091}

Barnt GreenBonfire and firework Display

BARNT GREEN BONFIRE AND FIREWORK DISPLAY 3rd NOVEMBER 2018

The Barnt Green Bonfire and Fireworks has been entertaining people and raising money for charity for over 12 years now. It is run entirely by volunteers to raise money for charitable causes.

Originally a Scout and Guide event, the Bonfire and Fireworks has widened it’s outlook to also include opportunities for other local charities to get involved and share the benefits a wider group of local causes.

The event is always short of volunteers and for the second year running the Brethren of Weatheroak Lodge No.7214 were pleased to accept the invitation from 2 Lodge Members Bro. Mike Southall and Darren Cresswell who comprise of half of the organising Committee.

The gates were opened at 5.30p.m. and 4000 people turned up to the Fireworks and Bonfire Display, the “Age of Penda” a sword and axe-wielding group gave an amazing re-enactment of an Anglo Saxon Battle.

Food and Drink Stalls run by local groups and Funfair Inflatables contributed to a magical evening.

Charities receiving donations from this event will be published on the Barnt Green Bonfire Website shortly.

Weatheroak have already volunteered to help at next years event.
