Again this year our lodge held another emergency double raising ceremony for Bro. John Watt (Left) and Bro. Ryan Preece (Right) in July when the Worshipful Master V.W. Bro. Roger Pemberton, Dep. PrGM (Centre) presided over an excellent ceremony and was ably assisted by W. Bro. Melvin Gough, Bro. David Bromley and W. Bro. Shaun Willocks.
Amazingly the temperature in our meeting room (which has no air conditioning) was not as hot as normal. The call for more fans went out to the brethren so lots of brethren arrived with briefcase in one hand and a fan in the other one!
The ceremony, however, lost nothing as our lodge acquired its latest Master Masons, who are pictured above with the WM and the PrGM R. W. Bro. Peter Taylor (Right) who is also one of our honorary members.
Bro. Ryan Preece is pictured (Right) with his proposer W. Bro. Andy Delamere (Right) and his and seconder W. Bro. David Hedley (Left).
