The Lodge was closed in due form and everyone retired to the bar. We were then called into the dining room to be treated to a sumptuous 6 course meal specially prepared by W.Bro. Robbie Dobbie and his team at Glenmore House.

After the meal we played Heads and Tails to win a special Christmas rum cake baked by our Master Chef, VW.Bro. Jerry Gangadeen. This was won by the Worshipful Master, W.Bro. Richard Knox.
