Cliff Hotel comes to the rescue

It was a crisis situation when, the night before the installation meeting of Teifi Lodge, No. 4648, in Cardigan, the masonic hall was struck by lightning, requiring structural repairs. Moreover, it was the lodge’s 90th anniversary, West Wales Provincial Grand Master Stephen Hookey was attending, and Master Elect David Elliot was to be installed by his father Graham. 

The Cliff Hotel in Gwbert, already scheduled to host the Festive Board, came to the rescue and the meeting was held there. Stephen Hookey presented a Grand Charity cheque for £4,000 to Tony Key OBE, Pembrokeshire Coordinator for Wales Air Ambulance, and received a cheque for £10,000 from Teifi Lodge towards the West Wales 2015 Festival for the Grand Charity.
