[Semper Paratus] 2022-05-27 Semper Paratus 3015 Raising

Our Light Blues are growing

Around 50 masons attended our April meeting. It started with a warm and fitting tribute to our late Brother and friend, W. Bro. Derek Bampton which was presented in an excellent manner by Bro. Geoff Graham. Officers not present at the Installation meeting were then invested by the Worshipful Master before all witnessed a great Raising Ceremony undertaken by the Worshipful Master, W. Bro. Gowan Hunt, who was ably assisted by other members of the lodge. It should have been a double raising but, unfortunately, one of the candidates was unavoidably detained with work duties. Bro. Mark Mills was raised to the sublime Degree of a Master Mason in true Semper style, guided expertly throughout by our Deacons, Bros. Dean Casey and Grant Howes. The evening was rounded off as usual with an excellent Festive Board. All are now looking forward to a Double Raising to be undertaken at an Emergency Meeting on 19th May.
