Lodge St. Bryde No. 579 was Chartered by The Grand Lodge of Scotland on 7th. February 1876.
We have continually met in Uddingston since that date and our Lodge has in its possession a complete minute which traces not only the history of the Lodge but importantly the history of our village and the surrounding area.
Our present Masonic Hall was built in 1924 and is one of the finest examples of a building of its type in Scotland.
With so many Proxy Members of Central South Africa Lodges in our Province we thought it would be a good idea to include a section in
The Right Angle on that is happening in The District.
With 47 active Lodges in the District, the Middle Ward has 18 Proxy Masters and of the 18 in the Province, 6 are from Lodge St.
All vacancies have now been filled, however if you would like to be associated with our future twin District, contact Jim Jack for details.
New Temple Dedication. Bob Law, Past District Grand Master
reports that recently, a near dormant Lodge Scotia No. 973 was
revived in the town of Virginia in the Free State.
The Lodge moved from Johannesburg and several Brethren from Bloemfontein and Virginia and the surrounding area affiliated to the newly located Lodge Scotia and purchased a building in the shopping centre in the town and refurbished it as their Temple.
Various items, including the Masonic light fittings were bought from a dormant Lodge in Queenstown, Eastern Cape and are over 100 years old.
The Consecration Ceremony was conducted by RW Bro. Jim Kerr, District Grand Master and the DGL office-bearers. Thereafter
followed the Installation of Bro. Frank McNicol as RWM and the
office-bearers of Lodge Scotia No. 973.
