The East Kent Regalia Scheme Helps to Support the Kent Museum of Freemasonry
Many of you who have been fortunate enough to receive a letter from the Provincial Grand Master offering you your first provincial appointment or a promotion in Craft or Chapter will have seen included a leaflet from Worshipful Brother Brian Blake of the East Kent Regalia Scheme.
Recent recipients with a keen eye will have noticed that Brian declared that he will donate any profits made on the sale of regalia to the Kent Museum of Freemasonry in Canterbury. To this end Brian (left) recently passed over a cheque for an amazing £1,200 to Tony Eldridge, Trustee (centre) and David Anning, Treasurer, (right).
If you cannot make it to Canterbury to buy your regalia etc from the museum’s shop then you can be assured that by using East Kent Regalia you can still help support the work of the museum
Although not able to be present when the cheque was handed over, Chair of the Trustees, WBro Tony Denne sent his personal thanks to Brian for all of his hard work and such a fantastic donation that will greatly help towards the daily running costs.
The museum, adjacent to the Canterbury Masonic Centre in St Peter’s Place, is open to everyone, not just Freemasons, from 10 to 4 each day and is free to enter. Despite the fact that the museum runs entirely on volunteers to keep it open seven days a week all year round, except religious holidays, it still has costs such as heating, lighting and insurance that needs covering on a daily basis.
Anyone still requiring Provincial Grand Chapter regalia can order it from East Kent Regalia by 21st April 2015, and thereby help support our museum. Click here to download an order form.
