Carnarvon Lodge News and Events

December 2019 - Provincial Grand Masters Visit and donation to local charity

Carnarvon were delighted to see our Provincial Grand Master at their December meeting. On this occasion there was no candidate and brethren of the Lodge gave the Lecture on the Tracing Board and the Lecture on the Mark Degree. R.W. Bro Phil Voisey then presented our latest recruit, Bro David Weatherill with his Grand Lodge Certificate.
The Members approved a proposal to give £500 to Keynsham Dial a Ride, a very worthy local good cause.

The cheque for £500 was subsequently presented at the Priory Lodge Burns Night at Keynsham on Friday 10th January 2020. Priory Lodge also donated £500 to the organisation showing a great example of the Craft and Mark degrees working together for local good causes.
Keynsham & District Dial a Ride covers an area from Keynsham, Whitchurch and Saltford, south as far as Timsbury. It enables travel for passengers who are unable to access public transport . Their vehicles are fully accessible enabling the use of wheelchairs and scooters. Dial a Ride used for shopping trips, medical appointments and social events.
The charity is part financed by Bath & North East Somerset Council, partly by making a small charge for every journey and relies on volunteer personel and donations to make up the difference in operating costs.
Terry Hopkins a volunteer manager at the charity thanked members of both Lodges for their generosity and said the money would help finance a replacement mini bus.
