Cheese & Onion, Black & White, Morecambe & Wise.

All combinations that sit comfortably on the tongue, eye and in the memory. 

The Rugby Football Lodge of Mark Master Masons held its latest meeting and installation ceremony on Thursday the 30th May at Rochdale Masonic Hall. The combination of Rugby Football and Mark Masonry is not as immediately recognisable as the above but somehow it works, and it works really well. The Mark Masonry is very much the standard protocol with exceptional ritual and a great membership of Mark Masons whose hobbies and interests also encompass Rugby Football, even the Summons more “Cheese & Onion, Black & White, Morecambe & Wise.”

3 x 3 x 3 Three Peaks Challenge

Provincial Grand Charity Steward, Brendan Harte, successfully completed the Challenge in company with his Son and Grandson. He was also joined on the Snowdon climb by his nine-year-old Grand-daughter who heard of her brother playing in the snow at the top of Ben Nevis!.

Ben Nevis was both challenging, not only more “3 x 3 x 3 Three Peaks Challenge”

Thoughts in Spring

As we approach the end of the current Masonic Season we now have only two years to go until our Festival matures. The big date for all your diaries is Saturday, 3 July 2021.
A great deal of work is already going on behind the scenes as we liaise with the venue, Manchester United, and start to bring together menus, AV suppliers, transport, hotels and all the other more “Thoughts in Spring”

Your loose change Brethren.

For your change: The Mark Benevolent Fund is issuing the Province with a number of boxes for each Lodge and each Masonic Centre. If you have any loose change and feel disposed to put it in the box, it will be thankfully received and will contribute to our 2021 Festival. Your generosity, as ever, will be appreciated.
