The West Lancashire Masonic Clay Shooting Society regret to announce that under the current circumstances the 2020 Masonic Clay Shooting Championships are cancelled.

West Lancashire look forward to seeing you all in Dorset in 2021

Large Presentation to the 2021 Festival

On 25th June, and on the 34th anniversary of the formation of the West Lancashire Masonic Clay Pigeon Shooting Society, the chairman and members of the Society presented W Bro Tony Harrison the Rt W Provincial Grand Master with one of the largest single donations to the 2021 festival

The Cheque of £10,000 was a combination of the hard work of the society members and some Patronage from Lodges & Chapters, for which we are always thankful.

We were hoping that it would have been much more but unfortunately, we had to cancel the 16th National Championships, scheduled for the 20th June, because of social distancing restrictions.

This together with the £750 to two non-masonic charities, distributed at our AGM, brings our total donations over the 34 years to over £134,000.

Our forefathers put in the Constitutions as one of the aims of the Society ‘To maintain our support of Masonic and non-Masonic charities’ I don’t think they envisioned how well those aims would be achieved.

The presentation took place at the Provincial Office in Leyland and facemasks were worn, not to protect the innocent but to be socially aware and set an example. On receiving the Cheque W Bro Harrison said “ I am absolutely delighted that such a generous donation of £10,000 to the 2021 Festival has been received from the West Lancashire masonic Clay Pigeon Shooting Society and it is most appropriate that today marks the 34th Anniversary since its formation. My sincere thanks to those members of the Society, both past and present, for their continued support”.
