A huge congratulations to the Featherstone Lodge team and their team leader Worshipful Brother Campbell Caraher for their tremendous achievement!

Ladies Festival Weekend 2017

Oxford Spires

This year the Master and his lady are holding their Ladies Festival at the Oxford Spires Four Pillars Hotel over the weekend of the 11th & 12th March starting with an informal evening on Friday the 10th.

The idea behind this event is to thank the Ladies for letting their men actively participate as Freemasons and to let them attend meetings.

The Saturday evening is a formal “Black Tie” event.

Featherstone Ladies Weekend March 2017

This festival is a chance for everyone to get together with friends and family and have an enjoyable weekend in pleasant surroundings and an opportunity for everyone to dress up on the gala banquet night with live entertainment, a raffle and some fun and games.

Oxford has been chosen as a venue so as to reduce the travelling distance for our Brethren who hail from Northampton and further Northwards and the hotel is only 10 minutes away from Oxford’s pedestrianised city centre.

This event is also an ideal opportunity for those who are not Freemasons to meet members of Featherstone Lodge and see what Freemasons do for charity, whilst still having a good time in a friendly environment.

Steward of the 2020 Festival

Steward of the 2020 Festival

I would like to personally thank the Brethren of Featherstone Lodge who have already made a commitment to the 2020 Festival for their contributions. Having pledged more than £9,100 Featherstone Lodge has been awarded the honorific “Steward of the 2020 Festival”. This entitles us to claim a grant from the Middlesex Province Relief Fund (MPRF) for £200 to a to a Middlesex charity or good cause of our choosing.

Select a Middlesex Good Cause

At our next meeting in June I would be grateful if Brethren would propose ideas for any Middlesex charities and good causes for our donation if £200 pounds so we can debate a worthy recipient.
