March 1st. 2015 was not only significant as being St. David’s Day, it marked the launch of the Colonnade club in the Province of South Wales at the prestigious Wales Millennium Centre.
This club is an exciting development for younger Freemasons in the province, offering an opportunity for them to meet, socialise with their peers and develop their Masonic proficiency, knowledge and experience.
Good afternoon, it is a pleasure to be here in Cardiff Bay this afternoon for the launch of the Colonnade Club. Thank you all for making the effort to attend. My name is Ben and I am the Chairman of the Committee. Over the past year or so it has been my great privilege to head a small team of dedicated young Masons in pursuit of something new. We all know that the Colonnade Club is a group of and for young Freemasons in South Wales, but perhaps it would be useful for me to expand upon why it needs to exist and the motivation for its formation.
