Swindon 32 History
|Moose Swindon 32 Lodge and Ladies Circle|
Moose International has had a presence in Swindon since 1929. A fraternity that originated in the United States but spread worldwide, it is based on the principles of service to the community demonstrating our concerns for those less fortunate than ourselves. Our aims are to forge bonds of friendship and to foster mutual aid among our members, to encourage good citizenship and kindly feelings between people of all nations, to stand for the preservation of constitutional government, to provide sustenance and education for dependent Children of deceased members, to assist our widows and widowers, give aid to our aged members, to give Vocational Guidance to those children of our members who may be in need of such guidance.
Our Hall in Eastcott Road, Swindon was built in 1964 and has been developed over the years to now provide facilities including kitchen, licenced bar, hall with small stage, cloakroom, toilets, car park and full disabled access. Our Hall is available to hire at £15 per hour, current users include Scouts, Cubs and Beavers, Slimming World, Line Dancing, Women’s Institute and private parties and we rent out car parking spaces during office hours all of which enables us to not only maintain our halls upkeep but also to donate to local charities that come to our attention. The last 3 years has enabled us to donate £10,000 per year to Charities such as Brighter Futures Radiotherapy and SCBU appeals, Dressability, Open Door, Swindon Food Bank, TWIGS, Swindon Deaf Children’s Society, Prospect Hospice and many more.
We are not particularly good at blowing our own trumpet, so we find that our presence is often unknown. We are formed of members of like-minded individuals who wish to form friendships, attend social events and make a difference to the lives of the community we live in through our charitable works. Members pay a yearly fee of £40 and can enjoy the benefits of a lunch club, lodge nights with guest speakers, dining events with entertainment, bingo and line dancing, all amongst a friendly welcoming group. Our Lodge night is the third Monday of every month at 730pm, why not come along and meet us, no obligation, it could be the start of something fun and rewarding in your life.
