Fine Dining at Knightsbridge Lodge


On 19th December 2017 at Surbiton Masonic Halls, the Warrant of the Knightsbridge Lodge No. 1878 was reponed and has once again taken its place on the roll of active Lodges in the Province of Surrey.

Our Provincial Grand Master was keen for the Lodge to be working once again and had the idea of a special interest Lodge, in this case one dedicated to fine dining. The Provincial Grand Secretary put out an invitation to all Masons in the Province for interested parties to come forward to take part in this project. In the event, it was answered by twenty five Brethren and VW. Bro. Michael Barnes, PGMO, PDepProvGM, who is no stranger to fine dining, is now the first Master of the new era. The Lodge has one formal meeting a year at Surbiton followed by a fine dining luncheon and then the members will assemble informally for a summer repast.

Special interest Lodges are springing up all over the country and whether for scouting, sport, fine dining or other purposes, are helping to bring together Brethren with similar interests. Whether by creating a new Lodge or breathing life into a failing one, they are helping to keep Masonry relevant and forming even closer ties among Brethren. Any Brother with an idea for, or wishing advice for, a special interest Lodge should contact W Bro. John French, the Assistant Provincial Grand Master in charge of recruitment and retention through W.Bro. Tim Ford, Provincial Grand Secretary: provgsec@markmastermasons.org.uk.
