Our other Sponsor Lodge would be Lodge Abbotsford No 937. The Two Wardens would be from No 832 for Senior Warden, and No 90 The Ancient Lodge of Forfar Kilwinning for Junior Deacon.
It was also agreed that the Lodge would be called Water of Leith, with the colours of Brown and Gold, symbolising the golden sun glinting on the brown muddy water of the "Water of Leith"
