Christmas 2017

On Saturday 16th December 2017, the two Craft Lodges based in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Ferrers & Ivanhoe No.779 and Hastings Lodge No.8695 , hosted a highly successful Family Christmas Party for Freemasons and their family and friends, at the Manor House School just around the corner from the Masonic Hall.

W. Bro. Terry Hueck, Master of Ferrers and Ivanhoe Lodge, and W. Bro. Anthony Hall, Master of Hastings Lodge, formed a small group of willing volunteers to organise the event. The party was attended by over 60 adults and 30 children, varying in age from 4 weeks to 16 years. The action-packed programme included carol singing for both adults and children, a huge buffet which was contributed by the attendees, a pay bar, solo singers, story-tellers and a ‘surprise' act with W. Bro. Mervyn Wass playing the ukulele supported by W. Bro. Phil Vincent playing the guitar.

Father Christmas also arrived, sitting and entertaining the children with stories and songs for almost 30 minutes before being presented with a cheque by the two Masters for £250 to be donated to Rainbows Children's Hospice in Loughborough. The evening concluded with a highly successful raffle to win one of four superb prizes, including two Christmas hampers where a further £300 was raised being split equally between the two Lodges, to be used for the benefit of other local charities.
