On Tuesday 20th December Veritas Lodge held its Annual Christmas Dinner and Carol evening at Ampthill Masonic Centre.
A total of 50 ladies, friends and brethren were present, and following a traditional meal with obligatory crackers and hats, the carol singing ensued.
There was the usual auction for the table to have the privilege of singing ‘Five Gold Rings’ in the twelve days of Christmas. Also the privilege of singing the solo Away in a Manger which was provided by Worshipful Brother Eddy Lia accompanied by Harriet Hardie. Music was provided by Quint Essential, a local 5 piece brass band.
The evening raised £400 which is being donated to the 2026 Festival in the Lodge’s name.
