Return to Kirk Loan - February 2018



Following a fire at our premises at The Public Hall in Kirk Loan, Lodge St John Corstorphine have been carrying out their meetings within the premises of The Caledonian Lodge No.392 at Roseburn Gardens in Edinburgh.

Although we will always be grateful to The Caledonian Lodge for allowing us to carry out our meetings at Roseburn, the intention was always - when the time was right - to return to our premise in Kirk Loan.

Currently, the premises we previously occupied are still unavailable to us, however we have been offered the opportunity to secure meeting nights at the newly refurbished Astoria Centre owned by The Corstorphine Trust, located at 18 Kirk Loan, Edinburgh.  EH12 7HD.

The Astoria Centre can be found by turning right into Kirk Loan from St John's Road, and is on the right immediately after Winston's Pub as per images below.

Remembrance Day 2017



It is always a pleasure to be offered the opportunity to lay a Poppy Wreath on behalf of an organisation at Corstorphine Parish Church and once again this honor has gone to Bro. Graeme Johnston as he represented the local Masonic Lodge in Corstorphine, Lodge St John Corstorphine No.788 as Master of the Lodge.

It is especially special to Lodge St John Corstorphine No.788 as we will soon be celebrating our 125th Year in Freemasonry, having been established on St Andrews Day on 30th November 1892.

Once again the Lodge St John Corstorphine were joined by local services from the likes of The British Armed Forces, The British Legion, Police Scotland, The Royal Navy and the Rotary club.
