December 2023

Every year at our December meeting, we invite our partners, family and friends to a Ladies to Dine evening held at Maxstoke Park Golf Club. It's an opportunity for all to celebrate Christmas and to introduce non-Masons to a Masonic function.

The evening was very well attended and good to see a large proportion of "non-masons" along with their wives and partners. The meal and hospitality, as usual, was to a very high standard, something we have come to expect from Maxstoke Golf Club.

Masonic events such as this are a great introduction to the social side of Freemasonry and are open to anyone to attend. You get to meet Masons, their partners and their family who will happily tell you what masonry is all about.

If you are interested in attending one of our social events then please contact the lodge here.

​Seeds of Hope is a community hub in Kingshurst working for and with the community offering various activities for all ages. They offer the opportunity for people to mix and meet others who share the same interests. Giving people with a community spirit the chance to get involved to use and share their skills. Christmas day saw two extra visitors who donated their time to support Seeds of Hope by serving 70 people a 3 course Christmas lunch, those that would otherwise be alone.  Both Tony and Sue were introduced to the organiser Jean Hamilton earlier this year when Tony went along and had afternoon tea with the Mayor. Tony is a member of Coleshill Lodge and, along with his partner Sue served food, entertained and then tackled the washing up.

Tony is due to become our Worshipful Master for the 2024/25 season and is already leading by example showing that charity is not always about money. The Christmas cakes in the picture were homemade by Sue

Feburary 2024

February meant a short trip just down the road to the Knowle Masonic Center for the Lodge of Alliance fun quiz night. Four members of Coleshill Lodge and their partners accepted the invite to put a team together and although we didn't win, we held our own which resulted in a very respectable 3rd place. We all enjoyed the very relaxed friendly atmosphere, delicious buffet, drinks from the bar and knowing you have more knowledge when leaving than you did when you arrived. A quiz is always an education and this one certainly was. Who would have known the Earth is 3 million miles closer to the sun in February than it is in July?

A Woolly Challenge for Tarts with Hearts

A member of the Coleshill masonic lodge recently lost his mum who was a prolific knitter of baby clothes, however, never finished any of the knitting off. The ladies of the Lodge have been working really hard to complete the work, and today donated 2 bags of knitted items including booties, cardighans, hats and mittens

Special thanks need to go to the ladies of the lodge and their friends and colleagues,
Debbie Ramsey for washing it all, Marie Smith, Sue Hughes, and a friend of Sharons from Work –
Wanda Shephard and her mum, and Mrs Hegarty and Sharon for making up all they have done so far.
We still have lots of cardigans to go so if anyone fancies a challenge

The items will be donated to Heartlands hospital and distributed out to the other neighbouring hospitals in the area for the neo-natal wards, and maybe some will even go overseas.

Brother Peter Gray our charity steward, was privileged to represent the lodge, giving over the garments to Jeanette one of the founding members of Tarts with Hearts.
