Ionic Lodge No 6983 Consecrated 27th June 1950

A meeting was held on 19th October 1949 to form a daughter Lodge of the Halsey Hall Lodge No. 4752. Minutes of that meeting records two names suggested for consideration; they were Ionian and Zidonian. No later reference was made to the name, but the Lodge was consecrated al Freemasons’ Hall, Great Queen Street as the Ionic Lodge. The Crest shows an Ionic Pillar and bears the Latin inscription ‘In Omnibus Caritas’.

The Lodge meets at the Halsey Masonic Hall, Cheshunt.

Jubilee Lodge No 9475 Consecrated 17th November 1992

A meeting was held in April 1991 by a few Masonic friends to discuss the feasibility of forming a new Lodge.
The original members were from various Lodges and Provinces who met, and became friends when visiting each other. Although widely spread over five Provinces, plus London, many within a reasonable distance of each other and were interested in founding a Lodge to which they could all belong.
In April 1992 the Provincial Grand Master gave his consent to a new Lodge, Jubilee, being formed. The name Jubilee Lodge was chosen because of the 275th Anniversary of English Freemasonry and the celebration being held at that time.
The Lodge was the first Lodge consecrated by RW Bro Michael B Jones on his becoming the Provincial Grand Master of Hertfordshire.
