Isle of Wedmore Lodge News and Events


February 2022 - Provincial Visit
After two years, the Isle of Wedmore Mark Lodge, meets again. It is the only Mark or RAM Lodge, that tyles in the daytime, in the province as well!
It was a well attended meeting, which saw the provincial team parade in, under the careful direction, of the Provincial AGDC, W.Bro Steve Mcnaughton! Following the normal welcome and salutations, the Provincial Grand Master, presented a certificate to, W.Bro Robert O ' Malley White, on his becoming a Grand Patron, of the Mark Benevolent Fund.
The DC, of Wedmore Mark, W. Bro Richard Farmer, gave a near perfect recital, of the lecture, on the degree of Mark Master Mason, which was very warmly received and applauded by the brethren.
The Master, W.Bro Ian Macdonald proposed, that the Senior Warden, W. Bro Mike. Fazackerely, be the Master elect for the ensuing year, which was duly accepted by the brethren.
We then all retired, to a cracking daytime festive board, with a vibrant atmosphere!

The lodge meets, on the second Wednesday, in Feb, MAY, Sep, so if you would like the experience, of a daytime meeting, in the Mark degree. Please come along and support this unique lodge, in the province.

    The Provincial Grand Master R.W.Bro John Morgan accompanied by members of his Provincial team visit the Isle of Wedmore Lodge for the meeting on 10th June 2015. The principal reason for the visit was the presentation by the PGM to the Lodge of the Somerset Travelling Keystone on the start of a new two year sojourn round the Province.

David Nelson assisted by a team of Provincial officers consecrated the Isle of Wedmore Lodge of Mark Master Masons No 1912. This is the first new Mark Lodge in the Province since 1988 when the Portcullis Lodge was founded.
    Immediately after the Consecration ceremony the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, V.W.Bro Ray Guthrie installed the first Master of the Lodge, W.Bro John Newland Peters who then appointed his officers.
    The ceremonies were followed by a festive banquet and celebration at the Masonic Hall, when over 70 members and guests enjoyed a very pleasant summer lunch.

The idea for a daylight Mark Lodge came originally from Brothers John Peters and Richard Farmer who will be the first Master and founding DC of the Lodge. As with all ideas it does take some time and effort to put them into practice. The selection of the Lodge name and the venue for its meetings are important.
Wedmore is an old market town with a long history, it was here in the 9th century that Alfred signed his peace accord with the Danish King, Guthrum. The Lodge logo shows Alfred holding up his "reverse" sword as a symbolic gesture of peace. The idea for the design comes Alfred's statue at Winchester, every Mark Lodge should be a peaceful haven, the Isle of Wedmore will share that peace and go on to be a great success.
