Due to the impact of contractual agreement obligations, the social committee have had to reluctantly cancel the Summer Fayre and BBQ that was planned for Sunday 5th August 2018 at the Bankfield Hotel Bingley. We, and the Hotel, are disappointed this event cannot take place and both hope that it can be rearranged next summer
We would like to thank all Brethren for their support and especially to hard working W.Bro Mick Ricketts and Pamela Bolton who have put much hard work into the planning. I also must thank Jennifer Cooper, daughter of the late Graham Cooper, the Hotel events manager, who has worked so hard to ensure that it was included In the Hotels summer schedule; alas this was not possible and a difficult decision had to be made.
The hotel, however, have generously donated, to the Province, a voucher for an overnight B & B and Evening meal stay at any of their chain of Hotels in England.
The raffle which was due to take place on the day of the Fayre, will now be drawn at the Sheffield Combined Mark Lodge meeting on the 25th July, so those who have bought raffle tickets, hang on to them as you may be the lucky ticket holder.
