The aims of the Wiltshire Masonic Caravan Association, formed in the spring of 1980, are, to hold caravan rallies for Masonic Caravaners, to involve their families, to enjoy weekends together at a relatively low cost and to meet Brethren and their families not only from our own Province but also from other Provinces who have similar interests as ourselves.

The Founding members hoped that from our activities, Masonic, National and local charities could benefit and be helped and supported in some small way.  There is no joining fee, but we charge a subscription of £25 per year per unit, payable from the first of November each year. 

 

At the present time, four/six rallies are held each year, usually after Easter, around Spring Bank Holiday, in June/July and mid August and in early October.  One of these dates will be our annual lunch, usually in a Masonic Hall or hotel in Wiltshire or a Province close to our own.

 

The officers and rally marshals of the association will be pleased to welcome new faces to our  rallies and would like to see previous ralliers who may have joined us in our early days perhaps having sold and re-purchased caravans.

 

We enjoy our meetings, everyone is free to do his or her own thing and not organised in any way, come along and see for yourselves, you are promised a warm welcome which will, we hope, make you want to join us on a regular basis and thus enhance our association.

Caravanners have a happy time watching Wales beat Belgium

 

ImageMembers of The Lodge of Agriculture No. 9090 plus others, journeyed to Wales for their annual gathering at which they celebrated a members birthday.

Having chosen to spend some time in the Principality it would have been curmudgeonly not to have watched Wales play Belgium in the European Championships.

It was too much to hope the result might be somewhat similar to the England v Iceland match.

In the event Wales played very well (perhaps they could give the Welsh rugby union team some pointers) and beat highly rated Belgium by two goals. 

An enjoyable time was had by all on this very special occasion and for those of Welsh extraction the evening was made more memorable by the result.
