On Thursday 24th March 2022, Depute Provincial Grand Master Brother Alan Cuthill (IPM of 117) along with the Master of Partick Saint Mary’s Lodge No.117, Brother Andrew McGroarty, had the privilege of attending the launch of the book “Secret Glasgow”

During Alan's tenure as Master pre lockdown, he was approached by Stephen Millar, a journalist and writer who informed him of his intentions to highlight little known Glasgow Places for a book.

He stumbled upon Lodge Partick St.Mary's Lodge Premises and was eager to include it.
Alan had the pleasure of conducting him round the halls which suitably impressed him enough to afford 117 recognition in his book.
Interestingly, along with his co author Gillian Loney, other premises with Masonic significance and interest have also been included. The Lodge has a two page spread on pages 50 and 51 and Stephen graciously and expectedly invited Alan and the Master to address the audience at the launch in Waterstones Book Store Argyle Street.

It was a most enlightening, educational and enjoyable evening and the book itself is a fascinating read for anyone with an interest in our wonderful city.
We wish both Stephen and Gillian very successful with their book.
The book is available from Waterstones priced £15.99.
