A few interesting points to note

At the 25th year membership was 128

At the 75th year membership was 52

A sad sign of the times.

Before closing the Lodge Martin presented John with a cheque to the value of £4623.00 towards the Grand Charity.

The lodge then was closed.

Well done Eslington Lodge
