Lord Harris Court, the R.M.B.I. Home at Sindlesham, adjacent to the Berkshire Masonic Centre, opened its doors to elderly Brethren, their wives or widows or close dependent relatives in 1972. Having dual registration as a Residential and Nursing Home, Lord Harris Court has some 90 residents. The Association of Friends, also formed in 1972, aims to assist in providing facilities for the care, comfort and well-being of the residents.
Over the years the Association has financed several projects including a physiotherapy wing, ornamental garden pond and purchased many forms of recreational equipment, together with vehicles including minibus ambulances. The Association organises fetes to raise money, social activities for its members and the residents and provides weekly services such as a non-profit shop for the residents, shopping trips and coach outings, carpet bowls and theatre trips. A regular Newsletter keeps the members informed.
The Association of Friends would welcome all enquiries from those who are interested in this work to become members of the Association and to participate in the social and fund-raising activities which are open to all the family.
