During the lockdown it was pleasing to receive a message to our website advising that a member of the public has come across three historic record books belonging to Lodge Kirknewton and Ratho 85. Bro Bullions, Secretary, contacted the gentleman thanking him very much for bringing this to our attention and that if he posted them we would gladly refund the cost. However, it quickly became apparent that these were very heavy large books and a pallet may have been required to have them couriered, notwithstanding the cost. As the lockdown traveling restrictions began to ease, Bro Potter PM volunteered to drive to Milton Bridge and uplifted the books. The books turned out to be petition books covering 1895 to 1963 and despite their age, were in good condition throughout and thus restoring the significantly historic and valuable records back into the Lodge's possession.
