The Lodge meets on  the first Wednesday of each month from September at Rawtenstall Masonic Hall from 11am
This being WBro David W Ashworth’s second year he was Installed by Proclamation. The lodge  also took the opportunity to present WBro Sutcliffe with two cheques totalling £400 for Masonic Charities; one was for Hewlett Court (£250) plus a second cheque for ELMC  (£150).
Our Installation also marked the occasion of a new member, WBro Edwin Hardman, joining our Lodge .
The Installation was well attended thanks to members guests along with our old friend WBro Jim Sutcliffe and the Lodge would also like to give a special thank you to the  members of the Duke of Lancaster Lodge (Lancaster) who took the trouble to drive down from Lancaster that morning to help us celebrate the occasion .
