At the first meeting of the season, Lever Park Lodge No 8144 in the Chorley Group was attended by regional charity steward Malcolm Warren. Malcolm presented the newly devised address to the newly appointed lodge charity steward Peter Idle and to Peter Hannis the newly appointed Masonic Charitable Foundation 2021 Festival representative.
Malcolm explained in great detail all aspects of their roles and what is required of them during the current festival.
Malcolm reiterated the importance of the festival, commenting on the first degree ceremony conducted on the night where the newly initiated candidate Ian English had just stood at the north east corner and been asked: “Have you anything to give in the cause of charity.”
Malcolm also congratulated Ian on becoming a Freemason and his brother Derek English who had initiated him on a wonderful evening at Ridgmont House, Horwich.
