Welcome to Jason McComb (centre) who last night became the 10th candidate to be initiated into The Iron Bridge Lodge, No. 9897 since our consecration less than three years ago. He is pictured with his proposer Bro. Steve Venezia (right) and W. Bro Jon Hughes who was the WM for the evening, as VW Bro Roger Pemberton was otherwise engaged at Grand Lodge.
This initiation would not have happened without the help and support of St. Alkmund Lodge, no. 2311 who after interviewing Jason thought he was more suited to our lodge due to the location of his home address being over an hour away from Whitchurch. It was not an easy decision to turn him away especially when lodges are always looking for good candidates!
We also welcomed Bro. James Buckley (who has taken on the mantle of our Organist) after joining us from Gatwick Lodge, no. 2502 after moving to Telford a few years ago. He played the organ and trumpet at our meeting for the first time and is pictured with singers W. Bro Brian Goodwin and Bro. Steve Venezia.
Finally during the evening two more candidates were proposed for 2018
