Gloucester Day Parade 2022
Gloucestershire Freemasons took part in this year’s Gloucester Day parade to show that they are very much a part of the local community today (and have been for over three hundred years). The day was sunny not only for its weather but also for its mood: what Ian Davies, the Assistant Provincial Grand Master who lead the contingent, described as “a real festival atmosphere”. The event is certainly growing in popularity and we hope that as three Lodges were proudly ranged under their banners this year more will take part in future. As the United Grand Lodge of England encourages Freemasonry to step out of the shadows and regain its place as a respected part of their local communities it would be nice to see far more of our 82 Lodges in Gloucestershire stepping forwards.
Our thanks to Jonathan Smith of May Hill Lodge for the photographs and to Geoff Warburton, Provincial Secretary, for setting up the gallery.
