Tarleton Lodge originally held their meetings at the De Trafford Arms Hotel in Croston, along with some meetings which were held at Ormskirk Masonic Hall, before a move was made to Leyland in the mid 1970’s.

The meeting was opened by the WM John Webster who warmly welcomed Ormskirk Group Chairman Frank Umbers to the meeting. Frank was supported by a number of visiting brethren from other lodges who have their meetings at the hotel.

Following on from the ceremony, an excellent festive board was enjoyed by all present during which Frank gave a speech welcoming the members of Tarleton Lodge back into the Ormskirk Group.
