Christmas Fair 2017


Thank you to all those who came and made this our biggest and busiest Christmas Fair yet. Santa arrived in fantastic style chauffeured by the Provincial Grand Master for Hampshire & IOW RW Bro Mike Wilks escorted by his elves riding pillion to bikers from Widows Son Masonic Bikers Association Southern, Hampshire Masonic Bikers Lodge and Lodge of Chevalier de Fer, supported by the local fire brigade who joined in with lights flashing and sirens blazing. The date for next years Christmas Fair is Sunday 25th November 2018.

After escorting Santa the PGM and bikers visited the Tercentenary Fountain which The PGM had opened at this years Summer Fete. It was rather colder than it was in June!

During this very special Tercentenary Year we have been delighted to have the Provincial Grand Master of the Masonic Province of Hampshire & Isle of Wight RW Bro Mike Wilks unveil our new Tercentenary Fountain and open the Summer Fair and also welcomed the Provincial Grand Master of the Masonic Province of Dorset RW Bro Richard Merritt and the Dorset Masonic Bikers when they visited Zetland Court on their Tercentenary Banner Tour.

Well what a day! The Summer Fete has come and gone for another year, leaving everyone who came through the gates at Zetland Court with a big smile on their face.

As always fun was at the centre of the afternoon, the official opening carried out by R.W.Bro.Michael Wilks the PGM for Hampshire and IoW, accompanied by his wife Kay.

Everything from a traditional Brass Band to face painting for the young ones was on hand to ensure entertainment for all. The queues for ice cream and burgers were literally never ending all afternoon.

If you missed this year make a note in your diary, it’s always the first Saturday in June, see you then.

Christmas Fair 27th November 2016


Many thanks to everyone who attended and supported the Christmas Fair. It was another successful event and raised a significant amount for the Home. This year Santa arrived in a 1969, fully restored Ford Mustang, much to the delight of the children and “Big Kids” who were there ! There were a good variety of Trade Stands, Games and Competitions, a Tea Bar serving hot drinks and Mince Pies and of course the Raffle with lots of prizes to be won. Special thanks to Steve Soutar of Soutars Fine Meats for the donation of the £50 Christmas Meat Voucher which was first prize and won by Terry Trevett. Second prize was the luxury Christmas Hamper which was won by John Claxton and Third Prize was a Lush Gift Set, donated by Lush Cosmetics which was won by Steve Turner and collected by his wife. The Verwood Brass Band played Christmas Carols and Christmas Music and a good time was had by all.

Below are a selection of photos from the event. How will Santa arrive in 2017 ???

The event was well supported and thanks go to all the members and public who came along for a wonderful afternoon of Brass Band music from the Poole Borough Band and the Southern Union Chorus.

As always at Zetland Court, the weather held good and the Pimm’s kept flowing. The Hog Roast proved a very popular feeding point for all the visitors and the day could be rounded off with a Cream Tea in the home dining room.
