Vale Chapter No. 5256 meets in differing locations in the West Lancashire Province, sometimes in Carnforth, sometimes in Barrow-in-Furness, and I was honoured to have given a talk on their May meeting in Carnforth on the York Grand Lodge. Carnforth is a beautiful historic town tucked away in the far north-west corner of Lancashire, not far from the border with the Lake District, the old county of Westmorland.
After the talk, we had a great meal which consisted of local cuisine and local ales. The talk went down well and I was invited back next year when the Chapter meets in Barrow-in-Furness. The topic next time will be the Wigan Grand Lodge.
