Morgan Lodge member takes part in Rust to Rome
Brother Jim Curtiss with his son Brett have set off for the Rust to Rome run that starts from Edinburgh 2nd July 2023.
Rust 2 Rome is drivers dream. It’s a Top Gear adventure without the 15 support vehicles. Visiting small and big cities full of culture & great food. The route has been put together with years of experience. The route blends days with a lot of miles and days with a few miles that will take all day to tackle. It’s not a flat-out race. The rally is a well balanced driving adventure, when it feels like a challenge after being on a motorway for hours then the route ends up on a mountain road. This route has matured over the past five years to become the most ideal experience possible.

Charles Morgan Talks to the Morgan Lodge
The Morgan Lodge No. 9816 held a Passing ceremony in June of the Secretary’s son, Bro John Warner.
After the ceremony we were honoured to have Charles Morgan, of the Morgan family, attend the Festive Board and give a very interesting talk on the Morgan family illustrated with some old photographs of the founder, HFS Morgan, Charles’s Grandfather and the rest of the Morgan Family. He followed the history of the company with a thought provoking argument to replace plastic in cars with sustainable products. The meeting was well attended, £100 was given to Charles Morgan for his chosen charity which was the UNICEF fund to help the children of Ukraine caught up in the war and a substantial amount was raised for the Provincial Festival.
Morgan Lodge at the Morgan Factory
In November 2019 the Morgan Lodge held a very successful weekend in Malvern, starting off on Friday afternoon with a Factory tour for 18 people given by Kenneth Wright one of our members who also works as a factory guide, it was thoroughly appreciated by all, I don’t know if the factory received any orders for new cars though.
This was followed on Saturday 15th November in the morning by our usual Lodge Meeting. Here we welcomed 15 guests.
Next on the list was a white table lunch for 58 people where we sat down to a wonderful ‘light’ lunch, we asked for a light lunch from our caterers but it was far too good and far too much but we managed.
After a walk around Malvern to walk off lunch it was time to get ready for the evening entertainment. This was billed as ‘An Evening of Nostalgia’ and it certainly turned out just like that. On the stage of the Visitor Centre of the Morgan Factory were the Trench Raiders, led by our own Kenneth Wright (busy man). The audience were the stars, 76 people, mainly dressed in period costume of the 2nd World War sang their hearts out. We all had song books and led by the Trench Raiders sang songs like Underneath the Arches, Wish me luck as you wave me Goodbye, Doing the Lambeth Walk and many many more. With a bar on hand and a super meal half way through the evening produced by the Visitor Centre caterers.
It turned out to be a great weekend, raising over £1500 for the 2022 Festival.
