Freemasons in the Community
Our Hall is within the Burnley and Pendle District of the Province of East Lancashire.
Whilst individual Lodges allocate their charitable giving to worthy causes some funds are placed with the District. These funds are distributed as the District Charity Stewards think appropriate. Recently, a Burnley pub praised for its over 70s free meal service has been given a cash boost of £750 from Burnley and Pendle District Freemasons.
The Kettledrum Inn owned by brothers Robin and Steve Reid were given the donation to ensure their charitable endeavours could continue. In partnership with Cliviger Parish Council, they have been providing free meals on Wednesdays and Saturdays, delivered to residents aged over 70 who are isolating during the coronavirus outbreak. And last month they were acknowledged as ‘mealtime heroes’ through BBC North West Tonight ‘s Everyday Hero programme. The story also appeared in he Burnley Express see photo here.
If you have a worthy cause needing support please contact us.
Cooperman Memorial Shoot 2020
It has been decided to cancel this year’s Cooperman Memorial Shoot and hold the next in 2021.
Most of the funds raised at this event comes mainly from the generous sponsorship of local businesses and it was felt that asking for such this summer was inappropriate. We will let you know through the usual channels the date for next year’s shoot.
Learn More About Freemasonry
There is a wealth of resources and materials on the internet about Freemasonry. Some of it is ‘Fake News’.
The Grand Lodge of England has developed a resource called Solomon which provides ‘A Journey of Masonic Learning and Development‘. It was originally designed for Freemasons but has now been extended to non-Masons so that interested gentlemen can begin their journey with confidence.
This new resource does not require the guest to sign-in and can be viewed here.
