The Grand Lodge of Scotland / Poppyscotland 2018
Day 7 of The Grand Lodge of Scotland / Poppyscotland joint venture to commemorate the end of the Great War in 1918 visited Hamilton and Paisley. Unfortunately, the weather was against and the Widows Sons Scotland had to endure a very wet drive to reach both locations. However, the visible presence of the motorcycles was appreciated at both venues..
Sunday 26 August
Day 7 – 1pm
Arrived in a very wet Hamilton to be met by PGM Bro. William Perry.
To minimise being drenched the ceremony commenced without delay.
Thank you to the PGL of Lanarkshire Middle Ward and the Daughter Lodges for assisting in organising this afternoon’s event and especially for turning up in numbers on a wet Sunday afternoon.
Day 7 – 2pm
A drive in the rain along the M74/M8 motorway, we arrived at Mexwellton Road in Paisley – home to 5 Lodges (129, 370,1116, 1218, 1219).
Day 7 – 3pm
PGM Bro. Neil Fraser welcomed the assembled company. After a short briefing we departed for the Cenotaph in Paisley town centre.
The rain had now ceased and the ceremony was conducted by Bro. Rev Robert Craig Past Senior Grand Chaplain.
After the ceremony we returned to Maxwellton Road where the Paisley Lodges had very kindly laid on soup and a roll – very welcome on a damp day!
We said our goodbyes and Day 7 drew to a close.
Thanks to the PGL of Renfrewshire East and the Daughter Lodges for their support at this afternoon’s ceremony
Special thanks to the Paisley Lodges (129, 370, 1116, 1218, 1219) for their hospitality.
