The Worshipful Master Simon Hills chaired an important meeting to consider the future of Stanwell Lodge and contemplate its past. We considered the friendship and values that had carried the lodge through over half a century; we remembered the high points and recollected the difficult times. We recognise that our camaraderie and spirit are strong: we promised to make sure this is a lodge that will one day celebrate a hundred years of fellowship and engagement in our community.
We came. We saw. We conquered. A fantastic evening was had by all: members and visitors alike. Our ceremony was smart; our dinner was splendid. We laughed, we talked, we toasted and we sang well into the evening. Our two new members were gratefully received into the lodge and expressed their pleasure at joining with formidable gusto.
We were delighted to welcome a new candidate into the lodge and celebrate our Christmas meeting in style with a bumper turn out featuring in excess of twenty guests, including regular visitors, first time visitors and two who expressed an interest in becoming joining members of the lodge. It was a magnificent festive affair.
