Wednesday October 17th saw the Raising of Bro Rob Wakefield to the sublime Degree of a Master Mason.
In a well-rehearsed Ceremony, the Master, aided by several other Brethren, raised Bro Rob in a dignified manner, enjoyed by both the Brethren of the Lodge and the numerous visitors present.
WBro’s Tom Browne and Dave Palin assisted by delivering the Exhortation between them and WBro Adrian Ogle delivered the Charge.
After Bro Rob had been restored to his personal comforts he received the Traditional History delivered by WBro Rick Bradfield, followed by the Working Tools of the Degree, presented by Bro Colin Rose, the Inner Guard of the Lodge. All present agreed that Bro Rob had been an excellent Candidate.
A typically lively Festive Board followed with the raffle raising circa £140 for charity.
The WM announced the Lodge Christmas Social & Dinner event on Saturday December 8th, with a local choir helping with the carols followed by dancing until midnight.
Further details of the event will be published shortly.
