A contingent from the Kingsgate Lodge No. 4882 visited the Union Lodge No. 127 at its meeting on 21st February to make claim on the Area’s Travelling Gavel.
Headed by Kingsgate’s Worshipful Master, Ian Day and accompanied by 5 of his Lodge members, they made correct representation and walked away as second time holders of this small but highly treasured trophy.
Pictured is the Worshipful Master of Union Lodge, Tony Dallman handing the gavel to Ian and his team. A well supported Festive Board with friendly banter made the challenge even more entertaining.
The Area 8 Travelling Gavel initiative leads to an enjoyable evening with some light-hearted banter and rivalry. More importantly it helps to support local lodges and encourages visiting, particularly by newer members.
