The two meetings  held so far by our Lodge at the new Masonic Hall in Stourbridge have been extremely friendly and well attended, with excellent catering, which indicates a very good future for our Lodge.

At this meeting, an engraved Conductor's Baton was presented to the Lodge in memory of W.Bro Royden M.Smith to act as an inspiration to future Members.
