The Travelling Trowel arrives at Wells & Mendip Museum

Visiting is the life blood of Freemasonry; it allows us to enjoy the company of others with similar interests to our own and to often make new friendships.

To encourage more visiting to other Lodges, the Province of Somerset introduced the travelling Trowel several years ago. The idea is that each Lodge will receive a visit from the Master, Officers and Brethren from a neighbouring Lodge, to present them with a “Travelling Trowel”. The receiving Lodge will then take this to an another Lodge in Somerset; there are now 5 Trowels in all, covering all of the Province.

So it was that Ian Odam of Benevolent Lodge welcomed Ralph Howard the Master and Officers of King Alfred Lodge, who made the trip to Wells from Weston s Mare.

A Fine bunch of men!

Ian said “I am delighted that so many members of King Alfred have come along, to deliver the Trowel to us, and witness a Raising”.

The night was finished off by the Benevolent Choir “serenading” everyone at dinner, a memorable evening for everyone.

Benevolent have been meeting at the Wells & Mendip Museum for several years and are a “pop up” Lodge, in that all of the equipment and is stored away between ceremonies and is all put together prior to each meeting.
