W.Bro Derek spoke at great length about W. Bro John’s fifty years both Masonic and family, noting that W.Bro John was still the organist of the lodge, in presenting the certificate W.Bro Derek brought the best wishes and congratulations of our Provincial Grand Master Rt W.Bro Ian Kingsbury.

W.Bro John thanked W.Bro Derek for the effort and the kind way he had presented the certificate, remarking where has the time gone? The brethren then retired for an excellent festive board where W.Bro John was presented with a gift from the lodge and all present drank his health, as a new brother had be initiated on the evening it showed the two ends of the scale, thus ending a very happy evening
