Open Day at Guy's Cliffe House - a rare opportunity to tour the house

Guy's Cliffe

Guy's Cliffe
Sunday 27th May
10 am - 2 pm

The brethren who meet at Guy's Cliffe House near Warwick would like to extend an invitiation to any Freemasons and their families who would like to take an opportunity to tour the house and grounds to join us on May 27th between 10 and 2 for an open day. We are also happy to invite people who are interested in learning more about Freemasonry and may be keen to find out about becoming either a male or female Freemason.

Guy's Cliffe House has parts of the building that date back to the 13th century and are a scheduled ancient monument the lodge rooms are apparently the oldest building in which freemasons meet.

The main house is a ruin that looks over the river Avon and its grounds have a Site of Special Scientific Interest as part of them

We are opening the temple, parts of the house and grounds not normally visited by the general public.

We look forward to welcoming everyone to Guys Cliffe

The Happiness Five go up to Llandudno - Presentation of a 60 Year Certificate

On Sunday 29th April 2018, five brethren from the Lodge of Happiness No 7952 ventured up to Llandudno in order to present a 60 Year Certificate to W Bro Thomas F Mitchell, with the approval of the Provincial Grand Master.

W Bro Tom was initiated into the Lodge of Faith and Hope no 4772 on 25th March 1958, and subsequently became one of the 13 Founder Members of the Lodge of Happiness in June 1964.

W Bro Tom, now a Nonagenarian, is one of two surviving Founders and delighted in explaining to the visiting party some of the early history of the Lodge and its members, particularly in relation to the fun and good times of past Ladies Nights, Social events and now seeing the Lodge grow from strength to strength – unfortunately for us, from a little further afield.

The picture below shows W Bro Tom receiving his Certificate from W Bro Geoffrey Weston, IPM of the Lodge, accompanied by W Bros Chris Albion and Mike Willetts (Photographer), Bros Philip Williams and John Snape together with obligatory fizz and Lodge Cupcakes!!

Presentation to W Bro Tom

Now an Honorary Member of Happiness, W Bro Tom keeps in touch with Lodge events through digital communication and the odd phone call here and there. A keen ritualist in his day, being known for his delivery of the Charge to the Initiate and the Traditional History, Tom was delighted to see a full plan of “work” for the Lodge over the next two years – only sorry that he can no longer make the journey down to Birmingham from North Wales.

After a very “Happy” couple of hours of fraternal company, the visiting posse retired to a local restaurant on the seafront in Llandudno for a refreshment stop before the return journey to the Midlands – unfortunately, we didn’t manage to wrestle either Tom or the glorious sunshine away from North Wales – can’t quite understand why!
