Freemasons of Skegness continue to work within the local community to support the contributions being made by younger people in the town.
Members of Lumley Lodge attended this evening’s presentation and awards ceremony for 1073 (Skegness) Squadron ATC at the town’s Masonic centre, when the current Master Scott Colbourne presented the Community Merit Award to Olivia Langford (pictured above).
Freemasons gave visitors the chance to see the Lodge room, an opportunity eagerly grasped thanks to this week’s broadcast of The Late Late Show with James Corden, filmed at the iconic Freemasons Hall in London.
Lumley Lodge member Simon Noden said: “We had about 80 parents and cadets at the event. The offer to look behind to doors inside a lodge room was very popular and prompted lots of positive questions about Freemasonry.
“Many spoke about our charitable work and how we have supported the ATC previously with a cheque donation in 2019 and most recently when St Clement Lodge, also in Skegness, made a donation of £1500. From a PR point of view I’d say it was as successful as an open day.”
