The Oddfellows – one of the UK’s largest and oldest friendly societies, with 280,000 members nationwide – opened a fresh chapter in its history with the move to a new national office in Deansgate, Manchester, last month.

The Lord Mayor of Manchester, Councillor Naeem ul Hassan JP, was among the 100 guests at the official opening and foundation stone unveiling of the Grade II-listed Old Courthouse building, which has been renamed Oddfellows House following a £5m refurbishment. The move to the Victorian building from rented accommodation in Booth Street reaffirms the Society’s commitment to the region, with which it has a shared heritage stretching back more than 200 years
