Generous freemasons from Morpeth have donated some useful funds to one of the town’s scout groups.

Members of Lodge de Ogle, which meets in Winton House, decided to give £100 to the 4th Morpeth Scout Group as part of their freemasons in the community commitment.

The cheque was presented by two lodge members – father and son David and Jonathan Richardson – to eight-year-old Milo Stewart from Widdrington Station, who represented the scout group.

David said: “We heard about the good work that the scouts do in the town with young people and decided to help.

“It’s great to be able to support people locally to carry on the good work that they do.”

There are almost 4,000 freemasons and more than 135 lodges meeting in 27 Masonic Halls across the Northumberland Province.
