The Provincial Grand Lodge of Hampshire and Isle of Wight
Rugby Bastion Lodge No 9896 Consecrated in Style!
October 2014
On Friday 10th October 2014 a new Lodge was consecrated by the Provincial Grand Master for the Masonic Province of Hampshire & Isle of Wight, RW Bro. Mike Wilks.
The Rugby Bastion Lodge will be of particular interest to fans and players of rugby alike and will be based at the Purbrook Masonic Centre near Portsmouth.
Such was the interest in attending this event that the Consecration Ceremony had to be held at the Novotel Hotel in Southampton and almost 300 Masons from all over the Province and beyond gathered to witness the formation of this new Lodge.
The very moving ceremony was expertly conducted by the Provincial Team and members of the Lodge.
