Cornucopia Pass Hartington Brother

On Tuesday night 9 brethren from Hartington Lodge 1085 attended an emergency meeting of Cornucopia Lodge No 9925. To witness the dedication of the new provincial banner. An event that has not happened since 2002 we believe.

The Provincial team supporting the PGM looked splendid in their regalia as they processed in.

The PGM gave an explanation of the banner, how it came about and it’s symbolism after which the provincial Chaplin gave a reading and prayer.

After the dedication, cornucopia lodge then proceeded to pass our very own Bro. Dane Mullis on behalf of Hartington Lodge. The ceremony was very good and his answers to the necessary questions were exemplary, including an additional question given to him by another W.Bro when asked by the WM if anybody else had one to give!

The following festive board was busy and lively and a good time had by all.

Hartington donate to local school

Hartington Lodge has recently donated £300 to the Parent Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA) for the Mease Spencer Academy Primary School in Hilton.

Pictured below Bro Ian Johnson’s son, started at the school in September 2021. Whilst talking to members of the PTFA he learnt how Covid has made it unable for the PTFA to operate and raise funds, in order to provide activities to the children. He wondered if Hartington Lodge could assist.

With opening in 2019 and only taking on one school year at a time, it meant that after the first 6 months of being open, they had to close their doors and were not able to put on any events to raise funds until the 2021/2022 academic year started. Now with three school years and the world returning to normal, the school really wants to push events in order to do more activities for the children and raise money to buy a school stage.

Cheque Donation

This donation was greatly received by Sarah Irvine (left) PTFA Treasure and Julia Hart (right) headteacher. Wasting no time the school is doing a film screening and providing popcorn and hot chocolate for the children one evening soon to celebrate valentines day.
