10th Annual Ride to The Wall

The North Wales Chapter would like to wish everyone taking part in the 10th Annual Ride To The Wall (RTTW) Run a Safe & Dry Ride. (Last year we had spectacular rains)

This year due to a clash of dates with the The Provincial Grand Lodge of North Wales’s Meeting only a few of our Members will be taking part. So if you see a lost looking Welshman, or two take pity on them and say hi.

Those attending remember there is a Widows Sons gathering at the Masonic Garden.

What is Ride To The Wall?

Ride To The Wall is a unique motorcycling fundraising ride with a dedicated service of remembrance that provides an opportunity for all motorcyclists to ride as an organised group to the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire to pay their respects and recognise the sacrifice made by the 16,000+ service men and women whose names are engraved on The Wall of the Armed Forces Memorial.

More information on RTTW can be found on their official website https://www.rttw.org/.

Hugh’s Initiation

Last night at Wrexhamian Lodge No 6715 Hugh Jackson was Initiated into Freemasonry.

Hugh is a Blood Bike Rider, You may remember his review of our 3 Day Welsh Adventure which was posted HERE. After seeing the Good work we do, and having a great time with us on the 3 Day tour, and the Social Night he decided to join Masonry, and eventually the Widows Sons.

Several of our Members turned up to see his Initiation (We even had our own Widows Sons Table)

Ride Out – Patches & Certs

On Sunday we met up with some of the North West Chapter who were having a ride out over the lovely Welsh countryside. The rain held off, and a great day was had by all.

During a coffee break at the Ponderosa, we had the opportunity to Patch [Boxer] as he had completed the required amount of ride-outs and meetings.

We also gave Kev & [Woody] their membership certificates

The Big Party – Video Highlights

A gloriously sunny 1st July saw the Masonic Province of North Wales celebrate the Tercentenary of Grand Lodge with a hugely successful BIG PARTY in the extensive grounds of Queen Elizabeth Court Care Home in Llandudno. Attracting over 1400 attendees, including many young families from the local community, the day was a festival of live music, charity and market stalls, games of skill, fun fair rides, circus performers, circus workshops and craft demonstrations all supported by the Goose & Gridiron licensed bar and catering outlets.

All proceeds from the day, which amounted to over £21,000, were donated to the Friends of Queen Elizabeth Court to be used for the benefit of the elderly residents.

National Rally – A Thank You

Last night we announced the final figure of how much money was raised for charity over the 3 days of the National Rally.

The final figure was £5,276 which will be shared out among several local North Wales Charities.

All of us in the North Wales Chapter would like to thank everyone who came along to the Rally, or helped out in any way. Without all of you, the weekend would not have been the success it was, and we would never have raised this amount for Charity.

We raise a glass to you all….

Unfortunately It was a glass of Tim Fergusson‘s concoction. Which anyone who’s attended a Rally in recent years will know the pain we went through to say thank you.
