A few days ago, I was very pleased to visit Bryan and his wife Pat at their home to see him being presented with a certificate celebrating his 50 years in Mark Masonry. Bryan was due to receive his certificate in Derby, where he has been a member of Woodiwiss Lodge No. 503 since his advancement, but as I’m sure you are aware Bryan has not been too well recently and could not make the journey.
So it was a very nice surprise for him when a delegation from Derbyshire arrived at his door with certificate in hand!
The attached photo shows Bryan receiving the certificate from his old friend RW Bro Robert Poxon, PPGM.
The full list of brethren from left to right are: WBro Ralph Hitchin, PGSec, RW Bro Robert Poxon, PPGM, VW Bro Bryan Walkerdine, PGJO, VWBro Phillip Ablott, DPGM, WBro Dany Brown, WM of Woodiwiss Lodge MMM No. 503 ………………Best wishes, WBro Bill Harwood
As well as being a long serving member of Woodiwiss Lodge, VW Bro Walkerdine has been a member of Belaside Lodge, No. 1340 in this Province of Cumberland and Westmorland since 1999.
