The second edition

It carries reports and pictures about the £3 million donation given by Mark Masons to the National Osteoporosis Society, our Annual Meeting of Provincial Grand Mark Lodge, the Social Committee programme and events, and the magnificent demonstration given at the January meeting of Warwickshire Installed Mark Masters’ Lodge. The Social Committee are very pleased to have supported the Province by paying for the distinctive new portrait of the PGM, and to have provided funding to encourage support for the Lodge of Instruction Festival whereby all new Mark Master Masons advanced within the past 12 months are invited to attend completely free of charge.

At the meeting, the new portrait of our PGM RW Bro David Rawlins, seen here with WM Anthony Fine, which was artfully painted by W Bro Roy Tidmarsh, was officially unveiled, and received with acclaim by all present.

Grandeur, Pomp and Ceremony – at its very finest – and a rare opportunity to see Mark Grand Lodge in action We arrange transport, add a little bubbly and nibbles, then bask in true Masonic Pageantry as our well deserving Brethren receive their accolades. The regulars are there every year – why not join them for a leisurely game and supper? Prizes galore, something for everyone. Or welcome to supper only if you're a non-player. We couldn't resist introducing this very timely theme, and great opportunity to feel part of the Jubilee celebrations.

Now an established annual challenge, enjoyed by both sides. Traditional afternoon playing/watching, cream teas, bar and barbecue. Players and spectators now being invited. An exclusive invitation to the "engine room" members of the Province, who collectively make everything happen. All will be sent their personal invitations, if you don’t receive yours, get in touch! Always a great meeting to be at in support of our PGM, with a colourful delegation from the Royal Ark Mariners. All Mark Master Masons encouraged to attend.

A beautiful Service for all the family, followed by seasonal conviviality in a unique atmosphere. Secure parking is available adjacent to the Church.

A great event for all the family in the splendid surroundings of our HQ at Stirling Road. Reception drinks in the magnificent Concourse, a hearty lunch, entertainment and a Grand Raffle. Visitors from the Craft and other Orders are very welcome (subject to availability), and Mark Lodge Almoners are especially encouraged to bring along the Masonic Widows they support.
