9th May 2016:   Regular Lodge Meeting - an Advancement.

This evening, we advanced Brother Philip David Partridge of The St John's Lodge No 1247 into our order.

What a delight to have a candidate, and the full support of almost all the team ably led by our W. M., W.Bro. Steve Towl, to perform his ceremony. It was obvious that a lot of effort had gone into getting everything right, making it a most successful and rewarding night. Well done everyone, and it was hinted that we have another possible candidate in the offing, things are really looking up. Again congratulations to all who took part: it did the two right things, made the team proud of their achievement, and impressed the candidate with the ritual.

After the ceremony, we enjoyed a good Festive Board.

Welcome Brother Philip, to the Manadon Lodge of Mark Master Masons, and to the order of Mark Master Masonry, "The Friendly Degree".
