So the New Year starts with a BANG at Signa Bene Lodge in Alcester with the presentation of 50 Year Certificate by R.W. Bro Philip Wills to W Bro Trevor Wellings. The evening started amazingly with a huge column of Provincial Officers to escort into the Lodge our Provincial Grand Master, RW.Bro.Philip Wills accompanied by RW.Bro.Eric Rymer, VW Bro.John King – The Provincial Grand Master and his Deputy from Worcestershire and two of our much loved Past Prov.GM’s, RW.Bro.Bob Russell and RW.Bro.Roger Mac.
The Provincial Grand Master conducted the customary ‘fireside chat’ with W Bro Trevor who has given remarkable and outstanding service to Freemasonry, not the least through being the driving force behind ‘Freemasonry Afloat’ on P&O Cruise Ships – these events have raised and incredible £300,000 for good causes! The Festive Board too proved to be excellent, the food superb, the atmosphere in such a hearty throng illustrating the camaraderie and fraternal affection that sets us apart as Mark Master Masons.
