The Fraternity was prominently showcased by local Freemasons at two major events: the 44th Peterborough Beer Festival and an Open Day, both drawing significant public attention. The Beer Festival, a staple on The Embankment, saw the Freemasons’ information stand bustling with activity and engagement.
Jonathon Hibbins, tasked with membership duties, hailed the event as a triumph, marked by a surge in public curiosity and subsequent referrals to the Open Day.
At the Beer Festival, the New and Young Masons Society, represented by Alex Thurlow, boasted 15 of its members serving behind the bars, with an additional 5 masons dedicated to the Discover Freemasonry stand. The enthusiasm carried over to the Open Day at the Peterborough Masonic Hall, which was a hub of interaction and discovery.
Attendees were treated to a preview of the under-renovation Masonic Museum’s exhibits, insights into the Masonic Charitable Foundation’s endeavors, and the compassionate outreach of Three Pillars Helping The Homeless. The presence of The Order of Women’s Freemasons added a diverse and enriching layer to the experience.
