On Saturday the 7th June 2014, the Master and members of The Wyggeston Lodge, along with the Leicestershire & Rutland Light Blue Club visited Apollo University Lodge No.357, in Oxford, the oldest University-affiliated lodge in the country. Both Lodges are members of the United Grand Lodge of England Universities’ Scheme.
The meeting was held in the Randolf Hotel Ballroom and consisted of 6 Initiations and 7 Raisings. Over 100 Freemasons attended and was excellently conducted by all involved.
The Festive Board was very enjoyable and entertaining with wine and laughter free flowing throughout the four course meal and afterwards.
After the Festive Board, members were welcomed to the Oxford University Union until the early hours of the morning.
Andrew Slater, a University of Leicester graduate and member of The Wyggeston Lodge, said “Yet again, visiting another lodge has not disappointed. We have all been able to make many more new friends from the far reaches of the country and strengthen existing ones.”
