Cavendish Club

A Message from the New Chair of the Cavendish Club – Gary Gibson 

“Brethren,

I would like to take this opportunity to say how honoured I was to be proposed, and then elected, as the new Cavendish Club Chairman.  Alongside Bro Matty Woods, W.Bro Carl Hallows and Bro Stuart Braithwaite, we are very much looking forward to building on the solid foundations that have been put in place thanks to the hard work of Bro’s Phil Renney & Allan Ritchie.

The overarching aim of The Club is to facilitate social interaction between new, junior and experienced freemasons who have not yet received Provincial rank.  In order to achieve this, The Club promotes visiting and working with lodges across the Furness and South Lakeland peninsula.  In promoting the values of free masonry, The Club is keen to encourage and support new members to become fully involved in this worthwhile and rewarding community.

There are no costs associated with joining The Cavendish Club.  If you wish to join, contact your Cavendish Club representative or if you wish to submit an enquiry about The Cavendish Club, you can do either via the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Since the formation of The Club, the members have attended some extremely positive and enjoyable events. In the summer of 2019, The Club sponsored two corporate days at Lindal Moor Cricket Club where an eight-a-side team enjoyed good company and a great game of cricket despite picking up the wooden spoon award!

In April and June 2019, ten members of The Club attended Barrow Rugby League where they enjoyed the facilities provided by the Schofield Construction hospitality box, courtesy of the group chairman, W.Bro. Peter Schofield, as well as two great games of rugby.  On Sunday 8th April 2018 a trip to Hawkshead Brewery was a very informative and enjoyable day for all who attended.  In September 2018 and 2019 The Club journeyed to Chester Races to enjoy a fun day of socialising and healthy competitive wagering. In May 2019, The Club was also able to enter Team Cavendish into the Coniston to Barrow sponsored walk, raising money for worthy local charities.

We have many future events planned for 2020 and beyond; such as further sponsor days at Lindal Moor Cricket Club, Furness Rugby Union, Barrow Football and, once again, Barrow Rugby League.

In the summer months, there will also be a trip to the Lancaster Brewery for a tour.  In addition, there will be events to support Stewards’ Lodges within the F&SL group, where new members are welcomed and supported.

Further information about planned events can be found on the Cavendish Club Facebook page or on the website.  Further suggestions for events and trips are welcomed by all members.

Please do join the Cavendish Club at the earliest opportunity and if you have any ideas, questions or other suggestions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of the officers or your Lodge Representative.  A bespoke Cavendish Club pin badge is available from any of the officers at a cost of £5.00.

On a final note, I would encourage all freemasons, but especially those newly initiated, to make the most of your masonic journey by getting out and visiting other lodges.

 

Sincerely & fraternally,

Gary Gibson.

Cavendish Club Chairman.”

Events and future plans.

Since the formation of the club, the members have attended some extremely positive and enjoyable events.
In December 2017, the Club organised a visit to Hindpool Christmas Lodge; we were treated to a wonderful night, which included, a lodge meeting, a Christmas dinner, fabulous homemade mince pies,waitresses, Christmas hats, carols, excellent company and one brother even playing a tune on a teapot!
Following on from this, in January, members of the Cavendish Club attended and stewarded the Group dinner, held at the Fairfield. This was another excellent night and we must have worked hard as we’ve been invited back next year.
More recently, on Sunday 17th February, 10 members of the Cavendish club attended the Barrow Rugby League game v Leigh. They took out a hospitality box and enjoyed the solid and liquid refreshments provided, as well as a fantastic game of rugby which resulted in a hard fought home win.
There has also been the launch of the Cavendish Club pin bade. This is a bespoke design and is available from any of the officers at a cost of £5. Many thanks to W/Bro Alan Tomlinson and Bro Paul Ackred for their hard work and involvement in this project.
Future Cavendish Club events are set to include… Sunday 8th April 2018 – a trip to Hawkshead Brewery; May/June – trips to Barrow R.L in the Schofield Construction hospitality box; July/August – sponsorship days at Lindal C.C and another local club (tbc); September/October – a trip to London which will include a visit to Grand Lodge at Great Queen St.

Please do join the Cavendish Club at the earliest opportunity and if you have any ideas, questions or other suggestions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of the officers or your Lodge Representative.
