On Sunday the 13th of October 2019, the Worshipful Master of Grand Junction Lodge No. 9775, WBro Graham Minett ProvSGW, and his wife, Denise, hosted a very successful Ladies Luncheon at Dodford Manor.

Despite a damp, drizzly start to the day, the company, food, venue, and excellent professional-entertainment all went towards making the event most enjoyable.

With 87-guests in attendance, including Brethren, ladies and friends, the atmosphere was ‘buzzing’. This was also in no small part due to the electric violinist who played during and after the four-course meal and post-lunch coffees.

As a departure from the normal custom, Mrs Denise Minett did not arrange for the usual ladies’ presents, but instead made a donation on behalf of each lady to Cancer Research UK. Each lady did, however, receive a red rose as a memento of the day.

Together with the raffle, a fantastic total of £650.00 was raised for the charity.
