On Thursday 3rd November Bro Martin Goodwin, the Worshipful Master of Olive Union Lodge No 1304 presented a cheque for £500 on behalf of the New Provincial Benevolent Fund, to Mrs Mary Silverton, Chairman of Horncastle History and Heritage Society.
The grant is to part fund the society’s new book ‘Horncastle’s Great War’.
The book is co-written by Mary Silverton and Colin Gascoyne and features details of the town’s fallen heroes from the Great war, including Bro W C Isle, a member of Olive Union Lodge.
Colin gave a brief resume of the book and offered his personal thanks for information regarding Bro Isle and presented the lodge with a signed copy.
Mary thanked the Lodge members for their support and stated that the book would not have been published without the help of Lincolnshire Freemasonry.
