Silhill Lodge of Mark Master Masons was delighted to be able to advance Brother Hardip Ubhi into the Mark Degree last night. Brother Hardip is an outstanding Mason as Worshipful Master of Knowle Lodge, but also quite inspirational in deciding at the age of 48 that he wanted to become a pharmacist; facing rejection from Universities as he sought to gain the needed qualifications; finally getting a place at the Medway School of Pharmacy but being told he ‘would have to do especially well’ if he wanted to stay on the course. He did, he was top in his Year. Now he has fulfilled his professional ambition.
W Bro Barrie Ratcliffe, Asst Prov GM and R W Bro Roger Mac, Past Prov GM, were both there to welcome him into the Order and make it an even more special night. Bro Hardip is now looking at joining the Silhill Royal Ark Mariners Lodge – welcome aboard and great to have you with us.
