We always hold our main Lodge meetings on the second Tuesday in the months below, commencing with the Installation of the Master for the year in September, followed by regular meetings in November, December, January, February, March & April. The Lodge of Instruction or LOI, at which we learn more about Freemasonry, always meets on the first Tuesday of the month with the exception of June, July and August. It also meets on the second Tuesday of October.
The Lodge Officers involved in our ceremonies always meet to rehearse on the day before the main Lodge meeting. Lodge meetings are always held on the same days in the month - there are no surprises and no Brother can claim ignorance of the dates when his Lodge meets!
Details of our next few main Lodge meetings and some other events are shown below. Unless otherwise specified, all meetings take place at the Wallingford Masonic Centre.
The PortcullisAnnual Lodge of Instruction gathering was held at the New Delhi Brasserie, High Street, Wallingford on 2 May for delicious food, beer and friendly conversation, and to celebrate a great year by our Worshipful Master and his officers.
The venue was a change from past years when we held a fish & chips get-together. All thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Several prospective new members also attended and we hope to see them again in the fall as initiates. In fact, they came to enjoy a second curry gathering with us in August!
