Onslow Lodge held its annual Summer Buffet at The South West Surrey Masonic Centre, Weybourne House in Guildford on Sunday 17th July. Some 80 people attended made up of members of Onslow Lodge together with their families and friends. We all enjoyed pre-luncheon drinks on the veranda overlooking the River Wey before taking our seats in the dining room for a sumptuous buffet. After the meal a raffle was held and £500 was made, being divided equally between Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice and The 2019 Festival appeal which supports the new Masonic Charitable Foundation. The Grand Finale was as usual the now famous “Yockney Quiz” compiled by Onslow’s very own Quiz Master, Gerry Yockney, which got everyone’s grey matter working overtime.
This year we were joined by The Honourable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons, representing Freemasonry for women. Maxine Priestley, their Grand Secretary, was present and will be working with Onslow Lodge, in particular W. Bro David Fairhurst, in presenting Freemasonry to Surrey University students in support of the UGLE University Scheme initiative at this years Freshers Fayre at the end of September.
Here are some photographs of the day.
