On Friday 24th April 2015 the Cheshire Scouting themed lodge was born at Leicester Warren Hall in Knutsford.
This was the culmination of the extensive work of WBro George Mann (APGM) in conjunction with Wheatsheaf Lodge over a number of years.
Also in attendance was WBro Nigel Cooper (PSGD), our own area 3 chairman WBro Adrian Morgan, WBro Colin Ross PrGChStwd with a large entourage of acting Provincial Officers.
A colourful and joyous Initiation ceremony was performed, with scouting music abound.
Stephen Morgan, now Bro Stephen Morgan. was initiated into masonry with all the majesty we expect.
An enjoyable time was had by all.
This lodge is already prospering with another candidate keen to join masonry at the next Wheatsheaf meeting.
After the meeting the Inaugural document is passed over to the WBro Edward Appleton, Master of the Scouting themed Wheatsheaf Lodge No 9170.
Charity cheques received with thanks.
Followed by a fun social board finishing with memorable camp fire songs bringing back many happy memories from those of us who were scouts in our younger days.
