LONDON UNDERGROUND TREASURE HUNT - Claremont Lodge No.1861 is planning a treasure hunt for its members on the London Underground taking in some of the sites across the capital whilst collecting items, selfies and cracking a station-related quiz on-route. It's planned for the 3rd July before the BIG WEEK itself and is hoped that if successful will be available for other lodges to use. It will start at a central location and finish at a restaurant near Grand Lodge for lunch and token prize giving, however participation and enjoyment is more the order of the day that winning and if anyone is late nobody's going to "MIND THE GAP".
