An attendance of almost Fifty; including Brethren, their families, friends, many Children and Grandchildren gathered at Burnley Masonic Hall on Sunday 1st December for the traditional Carol service.

The host for the service, Burnley and District Chairman, Bob Allan, welcomed the Reverend David Halford and his wife to the celebration.

All the Masonic Halls in the district were represented and these representatives read the lessons, along with District Officers, representatives of the Masonic Fellowship and a Children’s representative, Miss Phoebe Meeks, who, at 10 years old, gave a truly beautiful reading.

The Carols were enthusiastically accompanied by David Hawkins.

A collection was taken which raised £135 for The ELMC.

The District Chairman, Bob Allan, thanked the Directors and Brethren of Burnley Masonic hall for their Hospitality.

Following the service, all retired to partake of coffee and mince pies.

An excellent start to the Festive season.
