Brecon Freemasons welcome Llangasty Womens Institute

On Wednesday 13th June, the Brecon Freemasons played hosts to members of Llangasty Womens Institute. The ladies received a very informative presentation from V. Wor. Bro Dr Paul Calderwood on the origins of Freemasonry that then progressed through to Freemasony’s role in present day Society. The ladies were then invited into the Lodge Temple where they were able to see the Lodge layout and the Lodge Honours Boards that itemise the Worshipful Masters of the various Lodges.

The structure and offices in a Lodge were explained to the Ladies and opportunity was taken by the ladies to sit in the seats that would equate to their status within the WI.As can be seen, the President of Llangasty WI, Mrs Ann Bevan appeared very comfortable in the Worshipful Masters Chair! The ladies enjoyed a very relaxed atmosphere and were able to ask questions and discuss perceptions etc with their hosts.

Mrs Ann Bevan on behalf of Llangasty WI received a History of the Brecknock Lodge No 651 from W. Bro. Des Preece MBE. All the ladies were given a copy of Y Dalaith, the freemasons quarterly magazine for the Province of South Wales. This was indeed an historic day for both Brecon Freemasons and members of the Womens Institute and when the update to the Brecknock history is written it will surely include this memorable evening.
