On Monday 30th January 2024, Freemasons from Leicestershire descended upon the capital to attend a very special meeting, held at Freemasons’ Hall, Great Queens Street, London
Everyone attending the meeting had one thing in common, a love of the noble game of Cricket! On this occasion, the meeting was being held by St John’s Lodge No.80, the London Cricket Lodge. As it was their annual installation meeting, the person taking over the reins for the next year is Leicester’s very own Rob Wood. With members and guests from all over the country, the meeting was followed by an excellent meal in the Gallery room at Freemasons’ Hall London before departing for home.
Nine in total had made the journey down from the East Midlands, three were members of the London Lodge, and the rest were members of Leicestershire & Rutland’s very own Cricket Lodge, the Gabriel Newton Lodge No.9071.
