The Spirit of Rugby Lodge No 9922, which was consecrated in February 2016, held its first Beer Festival on Saturday 24th September.

Since the lodge’s first Master, Roger Waltham, is an old-boy of Medway Rugby Club, it was decided to hold the event at that club.

With glorious weather and plenty of activities for everyone, including children, the event was supported by some 600 people and achieved its aim of reaching out to the local community and engaging positively with a local club.
