|The second Open Day at Windsor on 3rd September was a great day to be bringing the 2 in 2 project to a close! 68 people through the door, 15 probable members, some of which are very keen, 3 likely Joiners and 3 ladies – a great result.|
|As always preparation paid off. Steve Croston worked tirelessly on the preparation, and the Windsor Lodges’ support on the distribution of flyers to promote the event along with their support on the day gave us flying start, and the Freemasonry gazebo in the middle of the main street shopping area attracted interest from the locals.|
Councillor Sayonara Luxton, Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, accepted the invitation to attend and was welcomed by VW Bro. Colin Hayes, Deputy Provincial Grand Master, who brought a smile to her face with the presentation of a cheque for £1,000 from the Berkshire Masonic Charity for her chosen charity, The Household Cavalry Foundation.
|From the start there was a steady flow of interest which continued through the day, with lots of interest in the work of the Berkshire Masonic Charity presented by Sean Kulan, and the explanations in the Temple by Graham Reynolds, Mark Wiltshire David Whyatt and Mark Davis held visitors again enthralled.|
All visitors were treated to tea and biscuits by the tireless Pauline, who was presented with a bouquet by the Deputy Provincial Grand Master to thank her for her efforts.
A good supply of candidates and joiners should keep the Windsor Lodges happy and busy for some time to come!
