Blind Veterans Masonic Group - CYMRU

From the 5th until the 11th of February a new chapter was opened not only for Blind Veterans UK (Formerly St Dunstan’s) a Charity for blinded ex-servicemen and women but for the Masonic group in particular.

After three years of organising and the ups and downs that go with it, W.Bro Clive Jones and a few Brethren visited the Llandudno centre for the inaugural Welsh Masonic Week.

Members of the Blind Veterans masonic group were hosted by the Worshipful Master and Brethren of the St Tudno Lodge No. 755 for a fantastic meeting.

W.Bro Clive Jones gave a 10-15 minute lecture on St Dunstan’s, its formation, the change of name to Blind Veterans UK and the part that the Masonic group play within the charity as one of their specialist members groups.

Earlier that day the members visited the Masonic museum in Llandudno and were treated to a very informative tour of the museum and the items within it.

Many other items were discussed and arranged for next year and the week was ended by a wonderful meal in “Hogwarts”.the main dining halls within the Blind Veterans UK Llandudno centre. Here the members of the group and 30 members of the Lodge and very many special guests were invited.

During the meal, two presentations were made to V.W.Bro Allan Powell, the Deputy Provincial Grand Master for the Masonic province of North Wales and to W.Bro Gerald Jones, the Worshipful Master of St Tudno Lodge No. 755. They were presented with identical block and gavels both showing the BVUK Crest on the front, W.Bro Clive Jones had these made, their respective ladies Margaret and Ceirnwen were presented with bouquets of flowers.

A wonderful week was had and the members who attended very much enjoyed it and were keen to attend again next year.

My final thank you goes to W.Bro John Bell the Secretary of Saint Tudno lodge, whom without him this week would not have happened. John, I thank you for your help, assistance, and patients, and I look forward to bringing more members of the Blind Veterans UK Masonic group to share their Freemasonry with you next year.
