Old Priory Lodge assist Sandy Bear Charity

While they were redecorating the offices of the Sandy Bear charity (a children’s bereavement charity covering the whole of Pembrokeshire), a request was made to Old Priory Lodge almoner Ian Barnes to ask if he could do something with the kitchen, which was in a bit of a mess. Without hesitation Ian replied yes, and so the process began. For the full story click here.

The September Quarterly Communication of Grand Lodge will take place at midday on Wednesday 13th September 2023 in the International Conference Centre at the Celtic Manor Resort, just outside Newport.
