Provincial Walkers prepare!


Forgive the pun but the Provincial Walks Programme continues apace and in charge will be our very own Champion Race Walker, WBro Roger Michell (Sabrina Lodge No 4158).

On 12th October there will be a walk from Freemasons’ Hall, Crewe Street Shrewsbury to
Ellesmere College in honour of The Old Ellesmerian Lodge which will be meeting on Saturday 21st October. The walk will leave Shrewsbury at 8.00 am and will follow footpaths and country lanes. The pace will be steady (3 miles per hour), so no racing!  If you would like to join the Deputy Provincial Grand Master and WBro Roger Michell on that day please send Roger Michell an e-mail on roger.michell@tps-cs.co.uk . If you would like to attend the OE meeting please contact the Secretary, on oe5368@the-sycamores.com.

A second walk, a little shorter [of about 6 inches... (Ed)], will take place on 16th November,
this time from Ellesmere to Oswestry to honour Fitz Alan Lodge No 1432. This walk is timed to arrive at the Oswestry Masonic Hall a couple of hours before the start of the Fitz Alan Installation Ceremony.  (There will be time to change and  arrangements might be made for a shower).  Once again, if you are interested in this walk which might take in one or two canal tow paths, please contact Roger Michell at the above e mail address. If you are interested in attending the Installation meeting please contact ebooth1432@gmail.com.

It is hoped that the two lodges might arrange to greet the walkers and possibly to arrange for  some informal sponsorship on the evening to go towards the 2019 Festival Appeal.  All sponsorship will be in the name of the Lodge and will go towards the Lodges’ targets.
