Barnt Green Bonfire Night 2017

Bros. Darren Cresswell and Michael Southall have been involved at the Scout Centre since the 1970’s as they were both Boy Scouts . There has been a bonfire at Barnt Green for over 20 years but Darren, Micheal and Bro. Bob Amos took it over from the church charity to raise funds for the new Scout Centre when the old one burnt down by vandals. 

This event has been very successful and the Boy Scouts now have a new Scout Hut and all their tents and other apparatus have been replaced. The Girl Guides and local Cricket club are now also now involved so they can raise monies for their own organisations.

Bob Amos  proposed Darren and Michael  into Freemasonry and they are now active members of Weatheroak Lodge, they asked the Lodge to help with last years bonfire night as they were struggling in getting enough volunteers to help with this event.

Members of the Lodge gave a positive response and Bros John Summers, Stephen Hall, Alan Smith, W.Bros. Steve Stowe, Glynn Egginton, Geoff Swann, Ray Golden and myself volunteered to help out in the Barnt Green Community Bonfire as we new how much it meant to the late Bro. Bob Amos. 

Ray and I spent the evening in a caravan counting money while the younger Brethren manned the turnstiles.

That night It was also good to see Bob’s widow Peggy helping out at one of the stalls.

Darren and Mick also organised with a dedicated team of helpers to set up the event and prepare a spectacular fireworks display and the crowd were not disappointed. 

Weatheroak Lodge are happy to have helped out on the night and we have also volunteered help for this years Bonfire Night.

It was great feeling to take part in this Community Event and at Lodge last Tuesday Darren and Michael generously  presented the Lodge with cheques to the value of £1450 which was gratefully received and will faithfully applied to Masonic and Non-Masonic Charities by our Charity Steward W.Bro. Steve Stowe.
