Over three weekends in late March and April, members of Bourne End lodge 7943 have worked trimming the Freemasonry in the Community garden.
Situated at the north end of the historic Marlow chain link bridge, the garden gives a beautiful welcome to the town. Residents of the Tierney Court retirement centre overlook the expansive garden, which is 100ft x 20ft long having a wide array of plants.
Bourne End lodge members Steve Blair, Paul Webb, Dan Cole, Simon Corb and Jim Hunt cleared, weeded, pruned and trimmed the garden back into beautiful shape whilst removing a mountain of dead growth and rubbish. Martin Richards from the Bucks Classic Car lodge as well as 2 community volunteers aided the final day.
The Freemasonry in the Community garden project run by APGM Phil Blacklaw, with help from Masons all across Buckinghamshire. Phil complemented the team "Many thanks for your recent attention to the Marlow garden, I’m told it looks to be in excellent order. Please convey my thanks to all your helpers."
If you would like to be a part of this wonderful project, please contact Phil at the provincial office for further details.
