Mike Mote writes: On the 10th April ,15 members assembled in the reception at Freemasons' Hall and starting in the Library/Museum were given a guided tour of the building. After the robing rooms where there were paintings of past kings who were masons we moved on through extremely heavy but easily manoeuvred doors into the jewel of the building, The Grand Temple.
Our guide explained the significance of the various symbols around the gallery and especially the very ornate ceiling. He also explained the relevance of the various stations in the Temple and gave a brief
explanation of the ceremonies conducted in the temple. He added that the Hall has been used in many films and TV programmes.
After this absorbing tour we retired to the Freemasons Arms and had a convivial lunch and thanks to the generosity of the members raised £100.00 for the Foundation.
