Cambridgeshire Light Blues Club Launch
On the 30th April, 2017, The Cambridgeshire Light Blues Club had their launch event.
Brethren, family, friends and prospective candidates all came together to meet at Bateman Street, Cambridge for the event, meeting new friends and joining with old ones.
Some 12 months previously, the committee members, W.Bro. Pete Wheeler, W.Bro. Lee Wilson, Bro. Gavin Philpott, Bro. Karl Doddimeade, Bro. Shaun Rawlinson, Bro. Paul Dunham and Bro. Graham Clapperton gathered together with an idea. Since then, with the assistance of W.Bro. Brian Elliott, the Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies and W.Bro. Jon West, the Provincial Grand Mentor, they have planned and created the CLB, the Cambridgeshire Light Blues Club.
It was very quickly decided that the CLB was not going to try and be a replacement for an individuals’ Lodge, but instead, a social meeting group for those newer to Masonry, along with families and friends, to meet and potentially bring along prospective candidates to enjoy the social side of Freemasonry.
