Danish Brethren Visit to 540.

Updated: Apr 13



On Saturday 14th April 2018, a special meeting was held by Lodge St.John 540 Crossgates when a large deputation from Various lodges in Denmark led by Very Enlightened Brother of St. Andrew’s Lodge (X) Flemming Andersen. The whole day came about when the Danish Brethren contacted Worshipful Substitute Provincial Grand Master Brother Craig Thompson PM. and requested a visit to a Fife Lodge, Craig didnt know which one to arrange a visit to, by coincidence one of the members in the Danish contingent is a friend of St.John 540’s Sword Bearer Brother Bill Lindsay so fortunately St John 540 were only too glad to help him out. Along with Brother Andersen were...

Unfortunately due to illness Illustrious Scottish Master of St. Andrew’s Henrik Rasmussen, could not attend. The day began with Worshipful Substitute Provincial Grand Master Brother Craig Thompson, PM, taking our Danish Brethren on a Visit to Dunfermline Abbey, afterwards they travelled to Crossgates and witnessed the Office Bearers and Brethren of 540 work an Entered Apprentice Degree, this was followed by a buffet meal and the evening continued when 540’s wives, partners and friends joined us and we were entertained late into the night by International vocalist, Danny Phoenix. New friendships have now been made with our Danish Brethren and we at 540 will try our best to keep this going.
