On Tuesday 21 March, in Endeavour & Astley Union Lodge No 830, W Bro Roy collier celebrated 50 years in Freemasonry, along with over 50 friends present to help him enjoy this special occasion.

W Bro David Dyson, the APGM, led a delegation of no fewer than 12 Acting Provincial Officers into the lodge room and addressed the Brethren with an extremely interesting history of the Celebrant’s personal and Masonic career.

One of the anecdotes referred to was that whilst Roy was on a cruise, and having indulged in the hospitality of all that was available, decided he would sing “My Way” on the karaoke to all the other passengers on board. A feat he later repeated in the Social Board after he responded to his toast!
