Ladies Night great success!

The Brethren of the Royal Alfred Lodge 1028 held their Ladies Night at Horsley Lodge on 13th October and their guests were treated to special guest Nell Gwynne, who gave a very entertaining talk about her life, the comedy skiffle band Kick ‘n’ Rush and they managed to raise over £2,000 for charity.  The Master’s lady has chosen the charity SANDS (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity) which was very well received.

Royal Alfred Lodge celebrates its 150th Anniversary

The Provincial Grand Master of Derbyshire, together with eighty eight Brethren, visited Alfreton 16th December to celebrate with the brethren of the Royal Alfred Lodge 1028 its 150th Anniversary.  The highlight of the evening was a reading of the history of the Lodge delivered by fifteen of its members, responding to a question master.  The Provincial Grand Master, being a member of Royal Alfred Lodge 780, which meets in London, commented that the name of the Royal Alfred Lodge 1028 may have originated at the time HRH Prince Alfred was alive, rather than the common thought that the Lodge was named after Alfred the Great.  At the 150th celebration the Provincial Grand Master presented the Lodge with a commemorative certificate and all its members with a lapel badge.  The current Worshipful Master of the Lodge presented all present on the evening with a quarter size commemorative brick!  On this occasion the celebratory festive board was held at The Derbyshire Hotel.
