When presenting the 300 First Aid Boxes To Elaine Cook, CEO of Devon Communities Together, Worshipful Brother Andy Vodden MBE, Chairman of the “Masonic Tercentenary Committee” said “as an organisation we have been a part of local society for nearly 300 years so it seems right that the Freemasons of Devonshire should continue to support the welfare of our local village communities in this way, the safety of everyone is of paramount importance to us all” When Receiving the First Aid Boxes Elaine Cook said “The support and generosity of the Devonshire Freemasons will be much appreciated by the halls on receipt their free first aid boxes.
