The first of the Jacobs Ladder fund raising social events Jacobs Ladder Spring Gala Festival took place in Swansea at the Masonic Hall on Saturday 23rd April 2016. The event was well attended and enhanced by the presence of the Provincial Grand Master RW Bro Gareth Jones O.B.E., Deputy Provincial Grand Master VW Bro Roy Woodward, Provincial Grand Secretary W Bro Gerald Rowbottom and the Provincial Grand Charity Steward W Bro John Davies.
The event included a five course meal and entertainment together with luxury prize raffles sponsored by local Swansea business’ who have connections to masonry. The majority of the Swansea lodges were represented at the event and the Jacobs Ladder committee hope to build on this success with further social events.
