176 Visit Croydon

Fifteen members of Lodge St. Andrew (Denny & Loanhead) travelled to Croydon for the bi-annual visit to their EC twin, The Coulsdon Lodge No. 4547.

After the Coulsdon meeting was ‘called off’ RWM Archie Mackay and his team of Office Bearers gave a demonstration of a Scottish third degree ceremony with two volunteers acting as candidates. 

The ceremony was very well received by the 190 Brethren who attended and 186 dined afterwards. Coulsdon Lodge promote their ‘Scottish’ night as a fundraiser and the menu included haggis which was piped in and addressed by PM Kevin McLean.

The event raised over £2,000 for Coulsdon charities.

The formal twinning between the two lodges came after 25 years of visiting. Coulsdon Lodge make an annual pilgrimage north for the installation and in recent years 176 has had an Emergency Meeting the night before so their special guests can witness two ceremonies.
