The most recent meeting of the Fairways Lodge took place at Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club on Thursday 5th October. As always a game of golf came before the lodge meeting. A good number of members enjoyed bright sunshine throughout the day although the general scoring did not necessarily reflect the good conditions.
The Competition was won by Gerry Logue with 34 points.Gerry also took the longest drive prize whilst Colin Kerfoot carried off the nearest the pin prize.
Geoff Walker, who was later advanced into the lodge, made the most of his last game as a visitor carding a very creditable 34 points to win the visitors prize.
Several non golfing visitors joined the members for the advancement of Bro Geoffrey Walker. Excellent work by the Worshipful Master, David Smith was enhanced by the contribution of several members throughout the ceremony.
During a response to a toast at the festive board, the candidate thanked everyone, saying how much he had enjoyed the ceremony and that he now understood why Mark Masonry is referred to as the friendly fun degree of freemasonry.
Both the Secretary W Bro Mel Broadhurst, and the Treasurer W Bro Mike Gage, confirmed that they would not be continuing in office following the Installation meeting in April and arrangements were put in hand for their successors to be appointed at the next meeting.
