Festive meals and 'santa stuart
Lodge Kirkliston Maitland 482 were delighted to contribute £200 towards an amazing Christmas enterprise that saw Christmas Dinners being delivered to 45 local individuals and families.
This ‘Sponsor a Christmas Dinner’ appeal was jointly organised by The Newliston Arms, Queensferry Churches Care in the Community (QCCC) and other local organisations, with the dinners being delivered to vulnerable and shielding individuals, as well as younger local families.
The meals were prepared by Mrs Karen King and her staff at the Newliston Arms and 482 Lodge Almoner Bro. Stuart White P.M. stepped in to help with the deliveries.

Right Worshipful Master Bro. Stuart Donald said: “This is a truly fantastic initiative that directly helps local individuals and families at this special time of the year. We are really thankful to have been allowed to help and our congratulations and thanks go to The Newliston Arms, QCCC and to all those involved.”
And the same Kirkliston 'boy' stepped in to give Santa a helping hand when he toured around the village.
Assisted by his elves, 'Santa Stuart' proved to be a popular Christmas Eve attraction - although we think he may have needed a wee brandy later to warm him up!!
Well done Santa. Fantastic job!!
