On 27th November 1982, a meeting was held at Freemasons Hall, Shrewsbury to consider the formation of a Round Table Lodge for Shropshire.
Tablers and 30 past Tablers convened to discuss the formation of a new Lodge. The outcome of the meeting was very positive and a letter was sent to all Lodges in the Province, requesting all Brethren who were interested to contact the Secretary of the proposed new Shropshire Round Table Lodge.
It emerged that there were 20 to 30 potential Founder Members and a good number of others who would join the new Lodge.
It was agreed to meet 4 times a year to make it easier members who were members of other Loges to attend. It was also decided that the lodge would be peripatetic and would travel around the Province with the Installation meeting being at Freemasons Hall, Shrewsbury on the 4th Tuesday in March.
The Petition for the formation was signed on 15th September 1983 with due ceremony at Pengwerne Lodge No. 3229, who were the sponsoring Lodge.
The Warrant of the Lodge from the United Grand Lodge of England was dated 9thNovember 1983. The Consecration was held on Saturday 5th May 2984 at the Shrewsbury Technical College. It was a splendid occasion attended by 230 Brethren.
