On 10th December the Lodge will hold its Christmas meeting. After a short meeting where the Treasurer will present the Lodge accounts for approval, the Lodge will close and adjourn to the dining room for the Christmas dinner. We will be joined by our wives, partners and friends, after dinner we will sing some carols, have a pantomime (not confirmed) and hold the bottle draw. The bottle draw is our main booster to Lodge funds, so we hope to sell as many tickets as possible. There is always a good number of bottles for prizes. All brethren are invited to attend.
