Discover Freemasonry at Harrow

November 13th saw the last of the 2019 Discover Freemasonry events organised by the UGLE  Province of Middlesex and was held at Southgate Masonic Centre. As always the men outnumbered the women in the audience! However HFAF Freemasonry for Women was well represented and Bro Corinna gave a very emotional and moving account of her journey in  Freemasonry.

Bourne celebrates at the Knole

On 16th April Bourne Lodge No. 37 celebrated the Installation of a new Master, W Bro. Meg Green in  their new masonic home at the Knole Masonic Centre. It was a happy day but one tinged with sadness as the lodge remembered W. Bro Alan Bailey, husband of W Bro. Jan Bailey who had recently died and who had been so instrumental in their move to their new home.
