On Monday 14th May 2018 I visited Duncombe Lodge No 1486 in Kingsbridge to present our Provincial Grand Master’s certificate to W.Bro David William Peter Grose PPrSGW to mark his having served fifty years as a Freemason.
Having been initiated on the 6th November 1967 by his father W.Bro Peter Grose, who was master of Duncombe Lodge in 1962. Brother David became master of Duncombe Lodge in 1979 receiving his provincial appointed of Provincial Junior Grand Warden in 1988 a very high first appointment and promoted to Past Provincial Senior Grand warden the very high rank he holds today.
David has spent a very active life outside of Freemasonry and has not been able to attend as he would have wished, but now finding things a little easier we all hope to see him join us as often as he can. In presenting the certificate I brought the greeting and best wishes of the Provincial Grand Master R.W.Bro Ian Kingsbury the brethren showed their appreciation in the normal way W. Bro David thanked me for the way I had presented the certificate stating he was overwhelmed. All then retired for an excellent festive board ending yet again another very happy masonic evening.
