Curry and more curry – a year (or so) on from starting the Light Blues Club of Jersey

Curry nights. That’s what the Light Blues Club of Jersey is all about, right? Well, it seems to be given the appetite of us Freemasons for a good bottle of Cobra and a decent Tikka Masala.

We’ve held very successful curry nights over the past year, mostly because they’re relaxed and informal. We even held a curry Q&A, which answered a few questions about Freemasonry some of us dare not ask in front of our more senior Brethren.

There’s more to the Club than a beer and curry though. Behind-the-scenes, we’ve designed and produced a Club crest, which is now proudly displayed in the Masonic dining room, and developed a new website.

We’ve also been active on Twitter and Facebook (more to come once the summer recess is over), organised the hugely successful Mannequin Challenge (over 1 million views!), provided articles for Regular Steps, and organised a fantastic write-up in a Jersey high-end publication, Lux, in which a number of Club members were photographed and interviewed (a link to the publication is here – our article appears on p34).

We have also recently sent a letter to all secretaries giving new initiates more details about the Club as soon as they join.

2017/2018 promises to be an even busier year. We’re planning another curry evening, a Mediterranean evening and more besides.

We’ll also be keeping you informed of all that’s going on in a regular email newsletter, including the Installation evenings of all our members so we can support them. (My installation for De Carteret Lodge, by the way, is on Tuesday 3rd October – please email me for tickets which are £20 each for dinner and beverages).

Yours fraternally,

Bro. Martyn White
