The Five of Nine Club’s next Freemasonry in the Community event will be held in conjunction with a Summer BBQ and will take place at Rough Close Scout Campsite on the 12th August 2017, this an event for the whole family!

Rough Close is a large scout campsite located just outside of Meriden, Coventry in the Warwickshire countryside. Freemasonry has long held a close association with the Scouting movement and we hope to strengthen this bond and help them carry on their great work with children from all walks of life and in particular those children with disabilities that use this fantastic facility. We will be cleaning and painting one of the Campsites Cabins ‘The Norton Cabin’, this is a large cabin, which is used regularly by the scouting world and includes facilities for any children or campers with disabilities.

We will have activities available for children and families, including football, Cricket, Mega Jenga and Giant Connect 4, we are also planning a mini orienteering activity/walk for the whole family. The
facilities are available for members to camp overnight with their families, with limited numbers inside the cabin and up to 50 on the field opposite.
After our Freemasonry in the Community event, we will host our first summer BBQ, the catering of BBQ and soft drinks will be provided by one of our committee members Bro Warwick Wakefield who runs his own catering business Ready to Roast, any specific dietary requirements please get in touch!

CAREWest Midlands Central Accident, Resusitation & Emergency Team (Care)

CARE is a charitable organisation who respond to serious medical incidents within the West Midlands. It consists of a group of volunteer doctors and nurses who provide advanced pre-hospital medical care to seriously injured and critically unwell patients.

The charitable aims of the organisation are the relief of persons suffering injury or illness by the provision of immediate medical care and advancing the study of immediate medical care by the provision of training and research.

CARE brings a highly skilled medical team capable of providing life saving interventions at the roadside and elsewhere. Their treatment of critically ill patients includes those severely injured in car crashes, industrial accidents, shootings and stabbings, through to adult and child cardiac arrests and those with serious medical problems, such as heart attacks, fits, and breathing problems.


Founded in the late 1980’s around the time of the national ambulance strikes, CARE has evolved from a ‘flying squad’ originally based at the now closed Birmingham Accident Hospital to the successful and highly respected organisation seen today offering pre-hospital emergency care across the region and in areas where air access is limited or impossible. Working alongside West Midlands Ambulance Service, each CARE team consists of three to four volunteer doctors, nurses, paramedics and other healthcare professionals who deliver enhanced critical care to seriously injured and unwell patients. Most of the CARE team work in NHS hospitals in their day-to-day professional life, volunteering spare time to respond with the charity.
