The ‘MAC’nificent charity weekend organisers (Russ and Denise) attended the Square Events familiarisation trip at Hellidon Lakes Golf and Spa Hotel. They loved the venue and thought it would be ideal for the charity weekend that they are organising, to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd September 2013.

Russ and Craig (brothers in law) take part in the annual Macmillan 4×4 challenge, referred to as the ‘Mac’, partly because they enjoy it so much, but more importantly, because they raise money in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Everyone has already been very generous with support for the last 2 years, for which they are extremely grateful and thankful. However the 2014 ‘Mac’ hopes to take the total raised since the event started in 2002 past the £1m mark.

They need your help to boost the funds as much as possible, so instead of just asking for sponsorship, a weekend away at a superb hotel in Northamptonshire has been arranged. Everyone is welcome, but demand is high for this indulgent weekend, so reserve your place quickly by contacting Russ Rainger.

The weekend will consist of dinner and light-hearted entertainment on Friday night, overnight accommodation and breakfast at your leisure on Saturday morning, with a day to yourself to enjoy the excellent spa and pool facilities at the hotel, explore the local area or play a round of golf on the challenging course. Saturday night will be a black tie event, with Champagne and canapés, a banquet, music for dancing and the all important Charity Draw, overnight stay and another leisurely breakfast.

Square Events have been involved in the organisation of this charity event, along with Russ and Denise, due to the expertise that they provide. Square Events have shown their versatility in the respect that this is not the usual type of event that they deal with, but have been involved from the off, as they introduced the organisers to the beautiful venue back in November 2012.

Hellidon Lakes Golf and Spa Hotel offers something for everyone, the hotel has experience of Masonic Events, with great banqueting space for your Gala dinner and fabulous facilities including a spa, pool and a golf course for your leisure time. For more information about organising a Masonic Ladies Festival please contact Matt Devine, Tara or myself at  Square Events on 01202 400855.

Russ and Denise are hoping for plenty of support from the Masonic community for this event, please contact Russ directly on 01728 688739 for more information or to book on to this indulgent charity weekend event.

The New Forest has so much to offer, a wide variety of hotels, restaurants and cafés. We had an amazing opportunity to experience some of the many different things that can be done in the New Forest, from relaxing in the hotel bar to being on an exhilarating RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) ride.

The New Forest is an ideal location for a Masonic Ladies’ festival, although there are a few hotels in the area that are unsuitable due to size and/or price, they are all set in beautiful surroundings and tend to be within a stone’s throw of a golf course. Another great thing about the New Forest is that it is very close to main transport links and just off of the M27.

I think that the New Forest is one of the most beautiful places in the UK and with so much to experience it is an ideal location for a leisure break with a combination of relaxation, with a wide variety of spas and treatment facilities and lots of exiting activities.

You can also rent a New Forest Twizy to have a different experience of driving around the forest without being worried about emissions, as they run purely on electric. If you are used to driving a big car on the bumpy forest roads, driving a Twizy may be a slightly scary experience.

Battlefield live, laser clay, archery and Segway are just a few of the activities that we encountered in one day in the New Forest, imagine the possibilities for a longer stay.

Even though I live just 10 minutes away from the New Forest and go there often, there is still much more to experience than the relaxing summer walks looking at the cows, ponies, donkeys and pigs and stopping for an ice-cream and possibly a drink in Burley.
