The Chase Lodge was consecrated on 28th October 1946 and meets on the last Monday of September, October, November, January, February, March and April. The installation of Officers is normally held on the last Monday of October.
The Brethren also enjoy several social events throughout the year, where the doors are open to the family, friends, and guests of our members.
From its consecration in 1946 up until 2006, the Lodge was based in Cannock, and originally met at the Hatherton Rooms, Stanton's Cafe in Wolverhampton Road, where our Mother Lodge, the Earl Shrewsbury Lodge held their meetings. Holding meetings in the Hatherton Rooms which were the function rooms for Stanton's Cafe, meant that the room had to be cleared by the brethren, the masonic furniture brought down from the attic and the Lodge set up. After each meeting the masonic furniture was taken up to the attic and the room then set up for the Festive Board.
For the Installation Meetings the old Community Centre, Hall Court Crescent, Cannock was used and a dispensation had to be obtained. The furniture was then transported from and back to Stanton's and the Festive Board held at Stanton's.
In 1956, Stanton's sold their business and the buildings and we then moved to new premises above Taylors in Market Hall Street, which we then occupied until 2006, when we moved again to the newly consecrated Masonic Rooms at the Chase Golf Club, Pottall Pool Road, Penkridge ST19 5RN.
Following every formal Lodge meeting we enjoy a meal with toasts and a few speeches. It’s a convivial environment where the brethren can spend an enjoyable evening amongst friends.
