For the last twenty years a luxury coach has been organised, from Swansea, for Brethren wishing to attend the meeting of Grand Lodge. This has always been an excellent trip, with hot bacon rolls and coffee to start the morning, quizzes with prizes donated by Paul Clement, Peter Williams and Phil Saunders, as well as a bar with Steward service on the return journey. The bus trip enhances the enjoyment of the London visit.

W.Bro. Julian Rees is organising the coach with pricing to include the luncheons, overnight hotel stay, as well as the bar on the way home. The coach will leave at 06:00 am from the Swansea Masonic Hall and pick up along the way at various M4 junctions.
