Guests were welcomed by the directors and a glass of ‘fizz’ taking the opportunity to review pictures from the former Masonic Hall in Hunter Street and renovation of Cheshire View, a previous Christleton Country Club. Slides jogged members memories as they recognised the work carried out by Freemasons of past and present which has made Cheshire View the Provinces Premier Masonic Hall now used by so many today.
