Subject: Thank you for your kind donation

Dear Mr T.A. Davies

I just wanted to send our heartfelt thanks for the kind donations that we have received, totalling £500:

  • £450 from Dalhouse and Call Sign Lodge
  • £50 from Dalhouse Lodge, GG Hooper Memorial Fund

Park Lane Stables is a truly special place, where horses help people and people help horses, and everyone leaves happier than when they arrived.

Your support will help us to continue offering much-needed equine therapy and support to those who need us the most, and to help us care for our amazing ponies who do all the magic.

Last year, we were able to support over 1,000 children and adults with a wide variety of disabilities, learning difficulties, mental health issues and others with socio-emotional needs.

We would not be able to do what we do without the support and donations we receive from people like you.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Best wishes from the Park Lane team.

Nicola Sutcliffe

 Masonic Knowledge The Hidden Mysteries Of Nature And ScienceOur masonic ritual throws up some words and phrases which we often accept as being what they are: something to remember when performing ritual, but not necessarily investigated to see whether there is some especial meaning to be elucidated.

FaustThese words may well ring true of the fortunes of Masonic Lodges, where over time there will be periods of rude health, with double ceremonies and lengthy guest lists, while at other times there can be pressure to find enough Brethren to fill the Lodge offices and a sense that the future is uncertain, to the extent that handing back the warrant is considered.
