Somerset’s very own musical Lodge, was originally constituted as a ‘Travelling Lodge’ – taking its music to other Lodges in the Province by invitation. In more recent years it was decided to hold all four meetings at Wedmore. However, the Lodge still regularly supplies singers and music for major Provincial Team Meetings such as Lodge Consecrations, Bible, Banner and Organ Dedications
