Social Events for 482 & 788


The Brethren should take note that there are two social events which have been organised and are happening soon.


1. 482 & 788 Annual Ball

This event is taking place on Friday 18th November at Kirkliston Bowling Club.  Tickets which are priced at £20.00 and will be made available at our next meeting for all Brethren wishing to attend.  There are a limited number of tickets being allocated to each Lodge and any unsold tickets must be released on 27th October to allow time for them to be reallocated.

There will be a Raffle or Tombola held on the evening and both Lodges welcome the donation of prizes.


2. Burns Supper

The Burns Supper taking place in Friday 27th January 2012 is no longer a joint venture with Kirkliston Maitland No.482 but it is hoped it will still be well supported by both lodges.

The venue has now been changed to Kirkliston Bowling Club, which will be their new 'Home' starting with their Installation on 11th February 2012.

Tickets are available at £10.00 each and can be obtained by calling Gordon Yeoman on 07894 727894.


Donations of Raffle/Tombola prizes will be gratefully received.


Cramlington 2011


Several of the Brethren from Lodge St John Corstorphine No.788 travelled to Cramlington in Northumberland on Saturday 3rd September to witness the Installation of Office Bearers at Lodge Arcot No.7000 on the Roll of the United Grand Lodge of England.

Present on the evening were our R.W.M. Bro. Edward Kelly, I.P.M. Bro. Calum Stewart P.M. , Bro. Wallace Bruce Stewart P.M. ,Bro. Fraser Gaunt P.M. , D.M. Bro. William McGillivary, W.S.W Bro. Sean Cairns, W.J.W. Bro. John Wilson, Treas. Bro. George Glendinning, and J.D. Bro. George Veal.



After the Installation the Brethren relaxed in the comforts of a local Italian restaurant before making the return journey home again.



A Perfect Harmony from Fish

On August 4th 2011, Bro. Stuart Murray, Bro. George Glendinning, Bro. Chris Veal and myself Bro. George Veal all went to a very special event being hosted in Dalkeith Kilwinning No.10.

This wasn't a masonic event and was open to all members of the public, but special it was indeed as Fish was playing a concert at No.10 to raise funds for the Lodge.   Why?

Well, Fish, who used to be the front man for 80's rock band Marillion is actually a local guy called Derek Dick and it turns out Derek joined Lodge Dalkeith Kilwinning No.10 as a Lewis and overall there are 110 years of Masonic history in his family.



The concert was absolutely fantastic and was part of his current Fish Heads Acoustic tour where he has teamed up with Frank Usher on Guitar and Foss Paterson on Keyboards.  Although it might sound a bit limited, the performance was powerful and really highlighted the talent of all involved - including the sound man (Fairy Tale Creature) who joined Fish in a chorus at the end.

The tour is in it's Scottish Phase where he/they will be playing a fantastic range of venues all over before returning to Edinburgh before Christmas.


Well done Fish & Co, and well done with the Fund Raising at number 10.


... and by the way, it's the best Harmony I've been to!

Building of King Soloman's Temple - Follow Up

The special event jointly hosted by Lodge St John Corstorphine No.788 and Castle Park Royal Arch Chapter No.520 proved to be a great success.


The two main events of the evening were to confer Honorary Membership on Bro. Barry Nutley who is the Right Worshipful Immediate Past Provincial Grand Master of Midlothian, and also to receive a demonstration / Lecture on the Building of King Soloman's Temple.

Both events were very well received by the Brethren and Companions who attended.
