The social committee which was formed by the Leigh group’s 2013 masters have spent the last 18 months organising fund raising events for the benefit of Leigh Masonic hall. The result of their combined efforts and the support of Masons and their families has enabled the group to purchase the tables and chairs at the request of the board of directors.

Brian said: “It is with much gratitude that we have been presented with a complete set of new tables and chairs for our hall by the Leigh Group Social Committee.

On behalf of all the directors I thank the Committee for all the hard work put in to raise these significant funds.

Our old furniture had reached the end of its useful life but now we have a variety of new substantial folding tables which allow our hall to be arranged with circular or more conventional layouts for both our Masonic and non-Masonic functions. Furthermore they have provided 200 quality banqueting chairs together with the necessary trolleys to allow easy movement to and from the storage room.

We are now fully equipped to cater for all our needs for many years to come and we are looking forward to enjoying the benefit of use of all of this new furniture.”
