At the last meeting of Ghyll Kirke Council held at Barnolsdwick Masonic Hall on Wednesday 24th October,  it was decided that from 2019 the Council will relocate to the Masonic Hall Keighley,   6-12 Cooke St, Keighley BD21 3NN.

The move will also mean that the October Meeting (Installation) will now be held on the 4th Wednesday in November. The other Meetings in June and August will remain the same.

it is hoped that as many companions can attend and support the Council in their new home.
