Brethren of Chorlton Lodge No 1387, who meet at Swinton Masonic Hall, at their regular meeting, celebrated their new Bible dedication. Longford Lodge No 5900 which is now erased, donated the Bible to Chorlton Lodge.
The WM, Jeff Purle, welcomed Assistant Provincial Grand Master Barry Jameson, who presided over the proceedings. Barry was accompanied by a Provincial deputation.
The Bible was presented by Michael Goldstone, then the Provincial Grand Chaplain John Hall, blessed the Bible and delivered a eulogy on the books of the Bible.
The Eccles Group Chairman Stuart Boyd was also in attendance with group officers along with four entered apprentices who were privileged to witness this not so common event so early in their Masonic careers.
The evening was concluded at the social board with soup, steak and ale hotpot and Black Forest gâteau.
