A praiseworthy effort by all at Hayle.Despite the atrocious weather our stand at the Royal Cornwall Show in June received a great deal of
interest from visitors at the show. Going under the banner of ‘Freemasonry in the community’, our
representatives received many enquiries from non Masons about our work, and an interestinginterview was given on Radio Cornwall by W. Bro. Roger Freeman. Such was the success thatconsideration is being given for another larger stand next year. Our particular thanks go to W. Bros.Roger Read, Tony Ward, Alan Odgers and Roger Freeman who put in so much time and effort for thisdisplay.
Pedal power rules
The heavens smiled - for a change - on Saturday 30
June as W. Bro.Richard Knight, PPJGW, and his family/minders set out bright and early tocycle along the 12 mile Camel Trail from Wadebridge to Padstow and back.A band of their supporters from the Molesworth Lodge were on hand to cheerthe
rider’s off on their long ride for charity.
Richard, who has turned 91 years of age, decided as the grand finale to hisyear as Master of the Molesworth Lodge No. 1954 for 2011/12, to leave hismark helping others not as fit or fortunate as himself. One of the charitiesclose to Richard
heart to benefit from the sponsored ride is ArthritisResearch; this charity will receive half of the near £600 raised on that day.Richard
rity is the 2013 Festival. Richard said, “
This will be agood way to boost the Festival Fund as it nears completion and as good a wayfor me to get fit
ter after the rigours of my year!”Also doing ‘wheelies’ were members of Cothele Lodge No. 2166
in Calstock who cycled from themost westerly Masonic Hall in Penzance to the most easterly Masonic Hall in Calstock.During the long journey the riders visited many Lodges along the way and raised over £1000.There then followed a Bar-B-Q which raised a further £696, all being donated to the Festival.A great effort by all concerned.
Any ideas ?
I have received a letter from Bro. Adam Reece of St. Piran’s
Lodge No. 7620 in Perranporth. Bro.Adam assists children with special needs by musical therapy, and I feel his letter will explain all
am hoping to raise awareness with regard to fundraising for the provision of music therapy in theSpecial Schools throughout Cornwall. The Council has cut all funding for the provision of music. Music is so important, in terms of learning, speech and communication. I am hoping to fundraise for the provision of music in special schools in Cornwall. If anyone knows of any venues that will host anight of live music please let me know, as any funds raised will go directly to the schools for the
provision of music”
