The lodge held a successful Ladies Festival on March 23rd 2019. About 50 guests joined the President, Peter, and his wife Pauline to raise money for the mental health charity Mind
The meal was enjoyed by everyone and was quickly finished off ready for the toasts.
The President proposed the toast to the queen, and then the specially formed quartet, brought together for a one time only performance, sang the Song to Ladies.
Worshipful Brother Vince Pearson then proposed the toast the Presidents wife, before asking the President's granddaughter Chloe to present Pauline with a beautiful bunch of flowers.
Pauline gave an excellent reply to the toast, talking about the supported charity Mind
Then Worshipful Brother Lyn Austen proposed the toast to the President.
Peter replied to the toast, thanking everyone for attending, and providing further information about Mind. He then asked everyone to generously support the Grand Raffle
Once the toasts and speeches were over, the band struck up with Peter and Pauline leading the dancing.
Later in the evening the Grand Draw took place. It included a number of great prizes, including a case of mixed wine (Laithwaites), a luxury car cleaning kit, a £50 voucher for two meals at Zizzi's, a bottle of VAT 69 whiskey, and a magnum of prosecco. Plus numerous other of varying value
