Felixstowe Widows Group Restart

On Thursday 24th November the Provincial Grand Lodge of Suffolk hosted a widows fellowship Tea at Felixstowe Golf Club for the Group 8 lodges. It was organised by W. Bro Dougie Paine the Group 8 Almoner and Widows lead. 18 widows attended from Felixstowe and Ipswich and had a great afternoon of chat, cakes, and refreshment.

Caroline Wales, AST from the MCF attended and briefed everyone on the support offered by the MCF.

New friendships were made throughout the event. It was pleasing to see that the diaries were out throughout the afternoon and plans were being made to visit galleries and other venues. The informal widows group had waned during COVID, and this event kick started the group again. Further gatherings are planned in future.
