Provincial Grand Lodge
of Hampshire and Isle of Wight
Bournemouth Lodge’s Masonic Welfare Association AGM
On Monday 25th January 2016 the United Grand Lodge of England Assistant Grand Master, Sir David Wootton was the guest speaker at the 50th Anniversary AGM of the Bournemouth Masonic Welfare Association.
The Association was set up to help assist brethren and their dependents who had retired to the area but were not attached to local lodges.
The meeting was chaired by W.Bro Ian Young, Chairman since 2005, who gave a very interesting talk on the history of the Association.
The Assistant Grand Master then gave an informative and interesting talk on “Freemasonry – a forward view” in which he elaborated on the new Grand Lodge strategy document, after which he took questions from the floor.
The Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro. Michael Wilks paid tribute to the work of the association after which a special tribute was also paid by Past Provincial Grand Master RW Bro. Ernest Moss.
The final item of business was to announce that following the new Area structure implemented by the Province, the Association would now be known as The Bournemouth and New Forest Masonic Welfare Association, thus encompassing the whole of the South West Area of the Province.
