initiative in Hinckley

Wednesday, 13 June 2012

In 1927, Hinckley Freemasons saw an opportunity to take masonry forward in the Midlands town and purchased land on which to erect a masonic hall.

Now, the building has been refurbished. To finance this, members purchased bonds of £93,000 – some £9,000 of this being donated. This left a shortfall of £10,000, which the board sought from outside commercial sources, with a mortgage agreed with a local building society.
