Many of you will know of The Wrekin Lodge No 2883 which meets at Great Queen Street, and some of you will have been fortunate to have visited. This year over thirty Shropshire Masons travelled to London to celebrate with them the Installation of their new Master, WBro David Johnson and to enjoy a splendid Festive Board at The Imperial Hotel, Russell Square. Don’t worry if you missed it, there’s always next year.
The Wrekin Lodge was consecrated in 1902 as a home for Shropshire Masons who lived or worked in London. The Lodge has always enjoyed strong ties with the Province of Shropshire, not least because many of its members had family connections with the county. Some of our Shropshire domiciled Masons have in the past joined the Wrekin Lodge; our present Provincial Grand Master, Past Provincial Grand Master and current Deputy Grand Superintendent are all Honorary Members.
Today the Wrekin Lodge is experiencing difficulty in finding new members principally because its current membership is spread far and wide across the country. I wonder if there are any Shropshire Masons who live in London or who travel to London regularly for work or leisure and who might be interested in visiting the Wrekin Lodge? They are sure to receive a warm welcome.
The Wrekin Lodge meets four times a year in February, April, September and November. If you are interested, please contact the Secretary, WBro Kelvin Stead.
