Grand Master visits Coventry

On Friday 8th April, a team from HFAF led by the Grand Master Christine Chapman, visited Coventry Masonic Centre as part of the initiative to re-open Centrum Lodge No. 46 as a future member of the HFAF University Scheme. Thanks to the efforts of the Coventry Management team, led by David Joyce, maximum publicity for this event ensured a good attendance for the talk on Women’s Freemasonry given by GM Christine. After the talk in the Temple everyone adjourned to the dining room for a buffet supper. We were delighted to see some former members of the lodge there who were keen to rejoin us. Several prospective candidates came forward and we look forward to welcoming them into our Fraternity in the near future.
