Area 4 Light Blues Social. This will take place at the Jolly Tap in Barnsley on the 7th May meeting at 1pm. There are a number of hostelries as well as places to eat. All brethren and prospective brethren are welcome. The Jolly Tap is less than 100 yds from Barnsley Station in the Victorian Arcade.
The LLB social was attended by over 20 brethren and some partners, alongside the chairman of the Adair club from Somerset! A large contingent of area 4 Rough Ashlars from Sheffield making up the numbers!
As our private area was double booked, we went to plan B, utilising the area of the Pack Horse known as the "naughty corner". After welcoming our visitors, Bro. Matt Nemyria announced that he was stepping aside as LLB chairman and Bro.Dean Leach would be taking on the role from the 1st of April.
The LLB members passed on their sincere gratitude to Bro. Matt, and to all of the previous committee members who had decided to stand down, including Bro. Manni Singh, and founder Matthew Wharton.
The Leeds Light Blues Club held its first Open Mic Lecture Day at the Allerton, Leeds, where 20 brethren and candidates were delivered four lectures, of different Masonic and historical subjects.
Despite a flash covering of snow, the fish and chip lunch was still successfully received, with gratitude to Corona Chapter for covering the costs and thanks to the brethren on hand with 4x4’s to assist in the food collection!
We look forward to holding more of these days in the future, where any brother, irrespective of rank, can practice delivering a lecture to peers.
