Pangbourne Lodge No. 4381
In February this year, Pangbourne Lodge celebrated its centenary and its 100th Installation Ceremony with a gathering of nearly 80 members and their guests attended. Dining afterwards was at the Ducle Domum Restaurant within the George Hotel in Pangbourne.
The Lodge meets six times a year, late afternoon, on the first Saturday in February (Installation); March; April; October; November and December. Additionally, we hold Classes of Instruction for all our members to attend on the second and third Thursday evenings of each month (except during the month of August).
Throughout the year, and in addition to events organised by the Provincial Grand Lodge at Sindlesham, we hold social events of our own for our members their families and friends including a Curry Night, a Summertime Sunday Lunch and, a Ladies Night which is a night of good food, good wine and excellent company.
The Ante-Room is used for committee meetings and for robing prior to the meetings.
The refreshment room provides tea and coffee for members and visitors before the meetings,
The Temple is quite unique with its ornate ceiling and photographs, which adorn the walls, of Past Masters of the Lodge.
This magnificent mezzotint engraving hangs in the Ante-Room and depicts the Installation of HRH Albert Edward (Bertie), the Prince Wales, held at the Albert Hall in 1875 when it was hailed as the largest congregation of Freemasons ever held.
