Somerset Masters receive talk about St John Ambulance.

At their recent meeting the members of Somerset Masters Lodge, received a presentation from a PastProv Grand Master Stuart Hadler, about the history and service provided by the St John Ambulance over the years, and how it has evolved. Also how much help has been provided by donations from Freemasons, particularly the Order of the Knights Templar, who support the eye hospital in Jerusalem, and have done so for many years.

Somerset Masters only meets twice a year and is also a peripatetic Lodge as it meets in Masonic Halls across the Province of Somerset, This time at Taunton with the usual excellent dining prepared there.

Any past master from any Lodge in any Province is more than welcome to join, the meetings are very relaxed with a talk or presentation rather than ritual taking place, you also sometimes get to witness some unusual forms of closing! If you are interested in joining please contact the Lodge Secretary Steve Chapman at steve.r.chapman@hotmail.com
