The Lodge was opened in the Second Degree and the Candidate answered the questions put to him. The candidate was then escorted from the Lodge and W.Bro Bill Flaherty left the Lodge to assist Bro. Kevin Dixie who had stood in as Tyler to assist him prepare the candidate.

As this was an emergency meeting there were no risings.

We were joined by the Ladies and other guests at the Christmas festive board where we raised £130 for the Trussel Trust, £184 from the sale of Teddy Bears, to add to the £20:70 alms.

The majority of the raffle prizes and all the Teddies were re-donated to a woman and children’s refuge in Bridgend, along with a new electric sewing machine to a charity that makes clothes for disadvantaged and sick children.
