Updates & information
Since resuming meetings at the pavilion, the covid safe site has remained a safe space to meet & conduct masonic business. although most of the brethren have had both vaccinations & bouts of C-19, thankfuly there have been so serious cases reported amongst the members. we remain mindful of the health risks & advice but encourage members to return to either take part in or comfortably / distantly spectate the ritual works of the lodge.
Since the beginning of the outbreak of C-19 and throughout the pandemic meetings were suspended by the Grand Master in line with essential health advice and the law. We managed to keep In touch & stay connected with new (for the lodge) communication methods that are helping more attend business meetings & catch ups. Our latest general purpose committee meeting was attended this way to a great turnout.
If any brother needs to isolate, falls ill or needs support in any way ~ do not hesitate to contact the lodge Almoner immediately. Help and support with covid (like with everything) is at hand so please keep the brethren informed of your status and needs. If you know of any brother in distress, similarly, drop the Almoner a line and let him know.
Sucess for the Masters
Due to the covid 19 restrictions, Someries missed out on its annual ladies Festival in 2021. Due to the reigning Master not being able to treat his good lady to an evening of masonic fun and enjoyment, the Current Reigning Master and the Immediate past master held a dual ladies night bash.
This was a night to remember and a well earned celebration by both Worshipful Brethren and their ladies, all the members of Someries, their wives, partners and friends. The event also supported the Masters charity. The pancriatic Cancer UK recievinmg over £1500
Mike & Martin on the square practicing their ritual with the aid of the brethren.
Someries is now well into the resumption of active meetings & have tackled some of the rust in the workings. With the resumption of meetings also comes the resumption of the informal lodge of instruction. All brethren are aware of the importance and necessity of getting the most out of the LOI & are strongly encouraged to attend as regularly as you can. If you are in office or taking part in degree work it is essential, and if not your help and guidance will be warmly welcomed.
This is also a great time to catch up in person, something we all enjoy and sorely missed through the lockdown phase of the pandemic. Come along, you’ll be glad you did.
Honouring the strong links between service to the nation and Freemasonry, Someries members share a profound respect for all members of the armed forces, present and past, that we owe an immeasurable debt of gratitude to.
On the occasion of remembrance Sunday, armistice day, we join community leaders and collected groups in laying a wreath to commemorate and pay respect to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the defence of their homelands.
We at Someries are fortunate to have serving and past servicemen amongst our membership, in this case it’s a generational thing – and its right they have the honour of representing our lodge and province at Luton’s remembrance memorial at the town hall.
