A fabulous afternoon was had all attending. The first time this normally annual event could be held in 2 years. The Provincial Grand Master R.W.Bro.James Steggles on behalf of his wife Joan and himself welcomed all and wished them a pleasant afternoon.
No formal speeches apart from the Loyal Toast. It was just the Brethren and their partners enjoying each other’s company and having a bit of fun.
Plenty of chatter and laughter could be heard as everyone tucked into Egg and Prawn Salad, Cream of Mushroom Soup, Roast Beef with all the trimmings, Poached Pears with Ice Cream followed Cheese and Biscuits.
R.W.Bro.Jim did stand and thank the Brethren of Fearnley Lodge No.58 and their wife’s who were supported members of the newly formed West Yorkshire Mark Provincial Grand Stewards Lodge. Their volunteering to help serve and look after everyone was really appreciated all present. It certainly made the event run smoothly
A fabulous raffle took place with some wonderful prizes. Then followed a game of Heads and Tales Bingo, great fun once everyone got the hang of it!
This raised over £700 and would be going to provide Humanitarian relief to the people of Ukraine.
A wonderful day with fabulous company.
