At the Somerset Provincial Grand Lodge AGM on the 5th April, the PGM was very pleased to formally congratulate the worshipful master, secretary, and charity stewards, of Tennyson Lodge No 4947, and Backwell lodge No 7964, on the occasion of them having attained a Golden Ashlar.

Golden Ashlar Grand Patron

This tremendous achievement represents an average donation of £1000 per member, and is not only a prestigious recognition of these lodges being Grand Patrons to the 2020 festival, but also significantly helps those lodges who are struggling to raise funds in time for 2020.

The Golden Ashlar achievement entitles these lodges to add a Golden Ashlar to their lodge banner and to their summonses, to receive a Golden Ashlar certificate (please see below), and to be further honoured by the MCF, who will send an executive later in the year to add MCF congratulations to those of the PGM, and to present a wall plaque.

Congratulation to all of the Brethren in both of these lodges for your unrivalled generosity in reaching this highest level of giving towards the 2020 Festival.
