Hamlet January News

On behalf of the Worshipful Master and Brethren we wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year.

The Lodge got off to a great start Brother Mark Walker taking his second step in Freemasonry.

The Worshipful Master being ably assisted by his team and a couple of visitors. Super subs were also used notably W.Bro. Dr. Alan Dowler who stepped in with short notice as the Senior Deacon. Some old timers namely W.Bro. James Thompson delivered and explained the tools in the ceremony.

A notable first was Bro. Desmond Radcliffe who having been appointed Inner Guard and who is partially sighted and partially deaf undertook his duties without needing any help. Well done Des.


The Lodge was also delighted to hear that W.Bro. Kelvin Jones is to be appointed Assistant Provincial Grand Master. Kelvin joined Freemasonry in general and the Hamlet of Van in particular many years ago however due to moving away he left the Lodge but continued to progress in Freemasonry in other Lodges and supporting roles in Province. Congratulations we look forward to your next visit at possible our Installation meeting in November.


This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Lodge and the Worshipful Master has decided that we will donate £50 to up to 50 local charities in the area starting with SSAFA, Little Hearts and LLamau.

He has also asked if anyone can come up with suitable registered Charities in the Caerphilly or surrounding area they would be considered.
