The Lodge social committee are currently discussing this year's calendar with dates and venues soon to be made available to the members. 

The photo above was taken as a cheque to the value of £1000 was handed over to the founders of the charity, 'Speak with IT' by W Bro Webb, Worshipful Master, and W Bro Round, Lodge Charity Steward on behalf of the Lodge. This was to help them continue the work done through their IT resources in returning those who suffer brain damage following a stroke to a speedier recovery.This was most gratefully accepted by the charity founders.

The Lodge Ladies Evening is to be arranged possibly for May. 

As Royal Wharfedale Lodge No1108 is to celebrate its Sesquicentennial (150 years) in June 2016, a special ceremony and festive board is being arranged to mark the occasion. Those wishing to join us please contact the secretary on 0113 2502208 or E:mail

A trip is to be arranged by Royal Wharfedale Lodge and the Otley branch of the Royal British Legion for members of the Otley Lodges and Chapters to visit the National Arboretum in Staffordshire during the year.  Coach seats are available by contacting the secretary.

As we do not meet in July and August, our social secretary is hoping to arrange a meal at a venue to be decided sometime during the recess for members and their partners. Further information will be posted on this page as it is made available.

The Lodge is hoping to make a train/coach trip to Grand Lodge in London later this year, possibly including wives and partners depending on interest shown. Other lodges are to be invited to join us when numbers are known and transport arranged.

Royal Wharfedale Lodge on behalf of all freemasons layed a wreath at the Service of Rememberance in Otley on Sunday 15th November 2015 with other Otley Lodges being represented and Brethren joining with them to honour all those who made the ultimate sacrifice, particularly those from the local area.

The Worshipful Master has arranged a Christmas Festive dinner at the Peasehill Hotel Rawdon in early December for all the Brethren,their partners and guests.

We can now confirm that once again Royal Wharfedale Lodge is manning our Masonic stand at the Otley Show in May 2017. The event is held at the old market ground alongside the river Wharfe.  Here we welcome any interested parties both freemasons and non masons to speak with us so we can provide masonic information for those wishing to join our fraternity.  Just ask!!
