Off we Go Visiting

Every Lodge is different, that’s what makes visiting a very enjoyable and important part of Freemasonry.
Tuesday was no exception. First stop on a hot afternoon was the Hercules Pillars to cool down with a pint after fighting through the hoards at Kings X and then Holborn Underground. 

Then it was a short stroll across the road into Freemasons’ Hall for a 4.45pm meeting at Kindred Arts Lodge. The guy at reception pointed to the lift and exclaimed Front Lift, 3rd Floor, no.3. a great help as there are about 4 floors and 8 lifts to different parts of the building
This was the second time I had visited the Lodge which has a membership of about 50, so you can always rely on a good turn out, this time 40 were in attendance including 15 guests for a Passing Ceremony which was conducted in a superb manner, a good job as there was an official visit by a Met.Grand Master Met Grand Inspector and 6 Grand officers (more than you could swing a stick at a regular meeting).
An excellent four coarse meal at a  festive board that was in the held in the basement of Parker’s ( private members club, i think) situated just around the corner, which after we finished at 9.30pm turns into a lap dancing club. The changing faces of London !! I beat a hasty retreat !!!!

Bro. Simon (North Harrow) after his 3rd Degree with
W.Bro Charrison (Wealdstone Lodge’s Visiting Officer)

That was is in sharp contrast to the next meeting at Wealdstone Lodge that I along with 3 North Harrow members attended on Wednesday at Harrow District Masonic Centre. They did a superb job at raising one of our brethren, Bro Simon Thomas, to the degree of a Master Mason with our help as there was only 13 in theTemple, that included the 4 from North Harrow and 3 guests including an official visit from WBro  Guy Charrison their Visiting Officer.
However, a great evening was had by all . We were happy to give them the work and I hope with the New Candidate for initiation we have also given them it will give them the boost they need to move forward.!!! watch this space !!
