If you've been interested in Freemasonry and what goes on behind the scenes, here are the answers.  So what happens in a Masonic Lodge?  Meetings have a formal masonic structure conducting the same administrative business as any club e.g minutes, financials, correspondence, reports, etc. But uniquely the major part of most meetings is the processing of new members.  This is done in a series of ceremonies, all new members experience, to reach full membership and become Master Masons. The ceremonies are the means of teaching the history and principles of Freemasonry.  Other matters at the meetings include charity and social activities of the Lodge. Afterwards there is, sometimes a shared meal or a pie and a refreshment with some social time.

A few months ago, residents may have noticed works to reduce the height of the entrance columns and to remove the stone balls from the top of the columns at Uphall Cemetery.  Since then, a local resident has engaged with the Cemeteries Department so that a permanent location for the stone balls, preferably in Uphall Cemetery, could be found.

However, the Cemeteries Officer of West Lothian Council has informed the community that the red sand stone balls have gone missing and that it has been reported to the police.  Below is a photo taken when one was blown off its pillar to show size - approx. 36 to 40 cm in diameter.

If anyone knows of their location now or has relevant information, please contact the police quoting crime ref number is CR/005333/22.
