Saturday 31st July was a busy day at the Loughborough Masonic Hall. The doors were opened at 12noon to allow local Freemasons, friends, and family to attend a service to dedicate the new doors to a dear departed friend and member, Mike Smallman.

A brand-new plaque was unveiled by Audrie Smallman, who was accompanied by the Provincial Senior Grand Warden of Leicestershire & Rutland Freemasons, Alan Roberts. Both Audrey and Alan expressed their heartfelt thanks for the dedication, as they reminisced the work carried out by Mike over the years on behalf of the Freemasons.

Afterwards, the doors were kept open as people were invited in for refreshments and a tour around the splendid Lodge room and facilities.

The day was a huge success, and a superb way to commemorate the life and works of Mike Smallman.

Other work over the summer break has included the fitting of new front doors. The old doors have been replaced with solid oak doors making the lodge exterior look very smart and grand.

All work on the Accessible Toilet has now been completed and it is ready for use. Thanks go out to all those who helped raise the funds to make it possible but the biggest thanks go out to all those that help to build it and make it ready in time for the new season.

Thanks to donations and proceeds from 200 club, raffles and events such as the music events hosted by Concorde, work has started on the much needed easy access toilet over the summer. With work carried out by members and professionals, the toilet will be completed in time for the new season.
