Lodge of Union, No. 38, celebrated its bicentenary at Goodwood House. The country estate, near Chichester in Sussex, is the seat of the Duke of Richmond, many of whom have been masons over the centuries. Lodge officers wear gold on their collars to commemorate the close connection between Chichester Freemasonry and the ducal family, whose colour it is.

The event was attended by Pro Grand Master Peter Lowndes, Grand Secretary Nigel Brown, Grand Director of Ceremonies Oliver Lodge and Sussex Provincial Grand Master Kenneth Thomas.

Helping Chlöe

Brethren of Lodge of Union, No. 38 in Sussex, along with MCC (Madehurst Cricket Club!) and the Lions Club, raised funds at a cricket match with barbecue and raffles to provide a suitable wheelchair, unavailable from the NHS, for Chlöe Humphrey, the granddaughter of the lodge Master Rod Humphrey, who suffers from multiple sclerosis.
     As a result, Chlöe has gone from strength to strength and is is now training regularly with the West Coast Tornados. She also attended a paralympic residential summer training camp at Stoke Mandeville Sports Centre in Buckinghamshire in August.
