Lincolnshire’s Widows Sons masonic motorcyclists are now full formed, having been given their charter at the Sons’ 15thannual gathering, held this year at Lichfield and hosted by the East and West Midlands groups.
The group, called the Lincs Imps, got its charter alongside one from the West Country – the Stone Cutters of Devon.
Lincolnshire’s Steve Shcuksmith, secretary of St Denys Lodge in Sleaford, and Lincs Imps President, said: “All the UK chapters were represented at this rally, with about 500 members, wives, partners, friends and family and associates. The main cause of the rally is for us to get together and have a good time, for the President’s governing board to approve and to raise issues regarding the association, but mainly to meet old and to make new
Friends – and this year’s event raised £17,000 pounds for charity.”
He said that charity total, when added to other funds raised through the year, took the Sons to a total of £147,685 for charities all over the UK, and Ireland, collected from about 1,000 members in 23 Chapters.
Steve added: “The Lincs Imps have eleven full members, two applications to join, a joining member from Scotland and two associate members, so for a new Chapter we are in fine fettle.
“We would be pleased to bring our motorbikes to any charity function that any Mason may put on, and we would also be pleased to visit any biker who may not be able to ride anymore but would like to still hear from others who do.”
So far this year they have attended Devonshire Court, Nottinghamshire’s Provincial Funday for children, the Bottesford Egg Run, and the Connaught Court open day near York, as well as numerous ride outs over the summer. A run into Norfolk to meet the Anglia and Norfolk Chapters for fish and chips on the beach, is planned for August 11th.
