Sandbach Area Five Annual Dinner

Forty delegates from Craft Lodges and Royal Arch Chapters assembled at Sandbach Masonic Hall to meet Leaders at the Annual Area Five Dinner. RtWBro Stephen Blank was on hand to talk freely about all aspects of Freemasonry, he described how the IDG in London are working towards a simpler and more sensitive system of screening new members, how the Province are now using every avenue to project our true image through the media and detailed plans for Grand Lodge Tercentenary celebration in London and Cheshire. Masters and First Principals were able to meet in an informal setting and talk about their experiences under the direction of Area Five Chairman WBro Dave Firth and Area Secretary WBro Martin Yoxall. The red and blue napkins were again used to identify members who moved tables between courses giving delegates maximum exposure to all our Leaders. Everyone agreed another great informal evening talking Freemasonry.
