On Sunday 17th July, Chillington Manor Lodge held its annual Widows’ Lunch when four of the surviving widows of past members of the Lodge were entertained to lunch at Maidstone’s Masonic Centre in Tovil.
The attached photograph shows the four ladies that did attend in the Rose Garden at Tovil, with the current lodge Master John Hopper, in the background. In his speech to the ladies John gave a brief review of memories of the four past members of the Lodge and the legacy they had left in the character of Chillington Manor.
On behalf of the lodge members, John also presented each lady with a small bouquet. Mrs Angela Geeson (second from left in the photograph) expressed the thanks of the four ladies present for the thoughtfulness of the Lodge in arranging the lunch and looked forward to a repeat of the event in 2017.
