A busy week ahead

I have a busy week ahead.

This afternoon I am off to the City of London to attend a meeting of Poulters Lodge. A friend of mine is being Installed as the new Worshipful Master of the Lodge, which is associated with the Poulters Company, one of the City's liveried companies. Several of the officers of Poulters Lodge are also members of my Mother Lodge, and it will be great to see them in action.

On Tuesday I have an eye test booked at the Bluewater branch of Vision Express. I hope that this will show that my eyesight has not deteriorated over the last twelve months, and than I am not developing cataracts.

Thursday will see me travel to Hemel Hempstead to attend the annual Hertfordshire Board of Stewards dinner. The stewards are the active foot soldiers of Freemasonry. They escort the Provincial and Deputy Provincial Grand Masters when they go out on official visits to Lodges as well as acting as stewards at the annual Provincial Grand Lodge Meeting and other large Masonic gatherings within Hertfordshire (e.g. The annual carol concert at St Albans Abbey). Being invited to attend their annual dinner is a great honour, and I'm looking forward to meeting so many old friends and acquaintances.

On Saturday, I'll be going to a Masonic meeting in Luton to deliver a talk entitled THE HALSEYS OF HERTFORDSHIRE: WHO DO WE THINK THEY ARE? The Halseys played a very important part of the development of Freemasonry in Hertfordshire, and the history of the family is very interesting. I've delivered this talk many times, and it has always been well received because the family were involved directly or indirectly with many important historical events in the UK and the USA.
