Dear Brethren, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.
This new year promises to be a challenging one. We have already closed our doors on Nelson Lodge.(ring out the old) and have started moving our belongings to Colne lodge. (ring in the new) We have a new year, new lodge building, new Worshipful Master , new officers, new friends and a new start. New members are needed, I believe we have some in the pipeline, who knows.
I’m sure this new start will invigorate and strengthen the resolve of the brethren in Pendle Lodge and we will make a success of this opportunity. Nothing could be better than handing a stronger lodge over to Bro. Mark Barlow when he takes the chair.
May we all have a healthy and prosperous year ahead of us, and for now, have a cool yule.
Bro. Ian Salthouse Worshipful Master
