Gardening Society: Wreath Making

6:30pm, Driver Lecture Room, Wellington College

The Wellington Community invite you to join a festive wreath making workshop kindly led by Donna, a former Wellington parent, who is a dab hand at hosting wreath making workshops! We will provide all materials including foliage that has been freshly foraged from the Wellington College grounds.

Please do bring some of your own materials to add your own creative flare using anything from red chillies, limes, dried orange or even peacock feathers! The wreaths will last right the way through Christmas so they can be admired by all.

This festive workshop is £10 per person and includes materials, mulled wine, mince pies and all your favourite Christmas carols.

Please spread the word to fellow members of the Wellington Community for what will be a merry evening, we have 40 places available.

The Old Wellingtonian Lodge No.3404

The Old Wellingtonian Lodge No.3404 is a Masonic Lodge for Old Wellingtonians, Governors, Masters and Officers of Wellington College, present and past, whether already a Freemason or those interested in becoming one. It is part of the Public School Lodges’ Council; a forum for the private lodges of many of our great public schools.

We welcome enquiries from anyone interested in finding out more about Freemasonry. Also, those who are already Freemasons are warmly welcomed to join us; especially those from PSLC Lodges or Old Wellingtonians from other Lodges – just ask!

Members of the Lodge meet in London three times each year: in February, October and November. For our May meeting we return to Wellington College to celebrate our Freemasonry and gives us the opportunity to support College charities and initiatives.
