Updates & information
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 falls ill or needs support in any way ~ do not hesitate to contact the lodge Almoner (Martin) immediately. Help and support with 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.

We at Someries Lodge 5202 are proud to announce, that there was a Chairty Auction as well as a Raffle, which raised £2,200.00, all of which is to be donated to the Kings Arms Project, a local charity which supports homeless people of Bedfordshire and the surrounding areas, and, a charity that W Bro. Martin has supported personally for many years.

Someries is now well into the new season. With the resumption of meetings after the sumer break 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.
