Lovells Bury Lodge Funds the Festival

Lovells Bury Lodge welcomed four visiting Grand Officers at their meeting last week, as well as a large contingent from the Widows Sons, BEDA Chapter.


Worshipful Brother Bob Curson presented six Festival jewels and was then himself presented with a cheque for £5,000 from the Lodge for the 2026 Festival.  The Worshipful Master then announced that the proceeds of the raffle that evening, £220.00, would be presented to the Beda Widows Sons so that they could carry on their valuable Charity work.

Pictured above is Worshipful Brother Chris Clegg, the Lodge Charity Steward, presenting the cheque to Worshipful Brother Robert Curson, along with members of Lovells Bury who assisted with the ceremony that evening and members of BEDA Widows Sons Chapter.


The usual fun of the Festive board followed the meeting, as can be seen in the photo below, as Worshipful Brother Mark Constant, APGM Northants and Hunts, ’stole’ the gavel from Brother Adam Wilson, the Senior Warden, who then successfully retrieved it!
