Firstly I would like to welcome you all to Clausentum Lodge No 1461 web site.
My name is W.Bro David McLaughlin and for nearly forty years I worked for Brokers in Lloyds of London Insurance Market before retiring in 2008.
I married my lovely wife Lorraine in 1974 and we will be celebrating our 44th Wedding Anniversary in 2018. We have two sons and some absolutely adorable grandchildren.
Both my wife and I really enjoy holidaying, history, good music, fine wine and Venice is our "go to place". We have visited there 7 or 8 times.
I personally enjoy meeting people and socialising in general. I also enjoy all manner of sport including football, cricket, golf and horse racing. I'm also a whizz in the kitchen, able to prepare most cuisines.
However, Indian would be my dish of choice.
I really do enjoy my Freemasonry and this year my charity of choice will be one of those that provides respite care and support for children with serious and terminal illnesses, together with support of other brethren and family and friends will no doubt raise a great deal of money for a lot of very good causes.
I was Installed as Worshipful Master of this wonderful old lodge on the 6th December 2017 and I'm really looking forward to what will be a fantastic year.
My first meeting will be on the first Wednesday in April, so brethren if you would like to join us at my first meeting or attend any other meeting please contact our lodge Web Master, W.Bro Brian Durrant PProvDepGSwdB by leaving a message and he will contact you.
Our lodge hosts any social event during the year which can all be found on our events page
And finally, my wife Lorraine's Ladies Night will be held in mid November and a firm date will be posted in due course.
W.Bro David Charles McLaughlin
Worshipful Master of Clausentum Lodge No 1461
