A cracker of an afternoon
Christmas festivities were in the air on Sunday 3rd of December as the widows of the former Darlington based freemasons were invited along to attend a special Christmas lunch. The event, which was a huge success and enjoyed by many, was organised and co-ordinated by the Darlington Freemasons Hall Management Committee, ably led by the Chairman Clifford Field.
Starting with drinks and conversation in the bar area everyone then moved into the dining hall and enjoyed a delicious turkey dinner with Christmas pudding for dessert, followed by cake and coffee. Chatter, laughter and the sound of Crackers being pulled could be heard in a room full of smiles and brightly coloured Christmas hats as everyone had fun in each other’s company. Special thanks given to all members of the hall management committee, including, John Cheadle, Ian Groves and Paul Farrell who are also there to support the event as well as some members of the Darlington lodges and their partners & families who attended to give their support too.
