The Bury Masonic Fellowship Group organised a day out by coach and it was decided to travel to south Cheshire and to visit Dagfields, a craft and antique centre located near to Nantwich. Dagfields is one of the largest centres of its type within the northwest. It has seven
emporiums covering over 50,000 square feet of display area for antiques, collectables and craft items. The centre is served by over 250 dealers with 25 craft workshops dealing in everything from handmade soap to furniture.
The centre is situated within the typical Cheshire countryside and in easy reach of Nantwich. The centre also has tea rooms and a restaurant serving homemade food. 24 members of the Bury Masonic Fellowship Group enjoyed their trip through the Cheshire countryside and their visit to the centre saying: ‘It was very interesting, if not a little tiring.” As part of their journey home they called in at Warrington Masonic Hall and were joined by 12 members of the Warrington Fellowship Group to enjoy a four course meal which consisted of prawn cocktail, roast lamb with all the trimmings, lemon meringue pie and cheese and biscuits followed by tea or coffee.
Whilst in Warrington Masonic Hall, the Bury members enjoyed a conducted tour of the hall including the two lodge rooms and the Warrington Museum of Freemasonry. Many said they had enjoyed the day very much and some of the Warrington members were a little envious that they hadn’t visited Dagfields! A good day was had by all.
