The Masonic Housing Association (MHA) Sheltered Home at Prebendal Close in Aylesbury provides its 30+ residents with a friendly and convivial place to live, very close to the centre of town.
At present just under half of the tenants are from the community at large whilst just over half have Masonic family connections. Prebendal Close is run by a committee of volunteer Freemasons.
The committee Welfare Officer, Fred Crabtree, who is also a member of Buckingham Lodge 591, which meets in Aylesbury, wrote to the Bucks Masonic Centenary Fund (BMCF) to request funding towards the cost of refurbishing the chairs in their communal lounge. These were definitely showing their age and are in constant use by the residents who enjoy their group activities and social occasions.
The BMCF were delighted to donate the full cost of refurbishment of £1,000 and this was completed recently.
