Special Events

Welcome to the Website of The Provincial Grand Lodge of Lanarkshire Middle Ward. I encourage all visitors to the website to browse through our pages and acquaint themselves with the masonic activities of our Province.

We have now reached the summer recess for many lodges and I am pleased and encouraged by all the support received when visiting lodges throughout the province. It has been very enjoyable to be involved in special events for brethren and lodges marking significant milestones in their Masonic history. It has again been a another very successful and enjoyable year for the province.

The Commissioned Officebearers have completed their annual visits to the daughter lodges and I know they are pleased with the support from their teams of officebearers and committee members and the way they have been received throughout the province, there is a purpose and positive feeling in the province and the brethren continue to be very supportive.

I have been heartened by the support of the lodges and individuals for the PGL Annual Charity Appeal which has raised over £15,000 for Prostate Scotland and Breast Cancer Care Scotland. The fundraising initiatives by both lodges and a number of individual members has really boosted the amount raised, these events included raffles, auctions, sportsmanís dinners, social events, sponsored hill climbs, runs and walks. Thanks to everyone for their efforts.

I particularly thank the lodges and brethren for their support for my sponsored walk around Fife which has now raised £6,750. I thank all those who accompanied me for parts of the walk, provided transport to start and finishing points, provided accommodation and generally made the walk easier. You know who you are.

I congratulate the lodges of the province on their continuing fantastic work to support local charities both Masonic and Non-Masonic. There have been many wonderful efforts from the lodges and individual brethren to raise funds for their chosen charities, this is very commendable.

The motorcycle cavalcade by The Widows Sons which toured all around the West of Scotland, visited Airdrie at the end of May. They were presented with a cheque for £1,250 which had been raised by the brethren of the province to further the work of the Marcus Humphrey House Friends Group with the residents at Bridge of Weir. Their tour raised a total of over £6,000.

I wish all the brethren a very happy summer break but ask them to remember that there are still lodges meeting throughout the summer. Lodge Nos. 166, 203, 440, 919, 1730 and 1779 have meetings at various dates during the summer months of June, July and August (See PGL website for details). I am sure they would be grateful for your support at their meetings.

This website is still developing and will continue to evolve to meet the information needs of the daughter lodges, the brethren of the Province and other interested website users. Enjoy browsing through our website and please return again.
