On a sunny Saturday in August, members of the Light Blue Club, some 48 in total, all arrived at The White Hart in Loughborough, to begin the first Magical Mystery Bus Tour
Arriving in Hawaiian shirts, which was the dress code for the day, the members were in good spirits and excited about the day ahead.
The day was organised by Freddie Harris, of Beacon Lodge No. 5208, and Andrew Yorke, of Highcross Lodge No. 4835, and proved to be a great opportunity for the members to meet up during the summer break, blow off some steam and have a good time together.
Visiting picturesque establishments in Walton on the Wolds, Hoby, Sileby, Rearsby, Thrussington, and Quorn to name but a few the journey on the vintage double decker bus was most enjoyable.
There were even a few non-masons on the tour; one is joining Highcross Lodge very soon and another enjoyed it so much, meeting the members plus hearing about all the good deeds undertaken by Freemasons, that he has just applied to join Beacon Lodge.
At the end of the tour, they all returned to Loughborough, where the venue had live music and bands playing throughout the rest of the evening. £100 was also raised for Leicestershire's 2022 Festival appeal.
