On the 22nd February saw the Ryton Holy Cross Lodge 4231 hold its Ladies night. It was at the excellent venue of Close House Golf Club near Wylam.
The Worshipful Master Bob Lydon along with his wife Janis greeted 70 guests consisting of lodge members, their good Ladies and their personal guests as they arrived to a champagne reception. The meal was absolutely a dream as expected at such avenue.
The Ladies Song was delivered by W Bro Jim Jordan of Ryton Holy Cross Lodge along with W Bro George Paylor of Ryton St Mary’ s Lodge. Mrs Janis Lydon suitably responded.
The entertainment was provided by Jason King who sang many popular “swing” songs and had everyone up dancing throughout the evening.
The Worshipful Master Bob and Janis had dressed the tables with lighting within table balloons and provided most of the raffle prizes themselves.
The guests were most generous in buying tickets which raised £520 which is destined for the Children’s Ward of the RVI Hospital.
The night was an outstanding success and carriages arrived at 11-30 (ish) and all went home very satisfied. A truly excellent Masonic Ladies evening in great company.
