Presentation of 60 Year Certificate at Hope and Charity Lodge 377

The rare presentation of a 60-years' Membership Certificate and a Proclamation attracted about 60 Masons to the February meeting of the Lodge of Hope & Charity, No. 377 at Kidderminster.

The Certificate was presented to W.Bro. Peter Ricketts by W.Bro. Keith Evans, Assistant Provincial Grand Master, who, at the same time, announced that, with immediate effect,  the Provincial Grand Master had promoted Peter from PPrGJW to PPGSW.

The award sits nicely beside his Certificate of Merit, awarded some time ago for his editing of the Provincial Newsletter, 'Worcestershire Source'.

Earlier, W.Bro. Colin Young had outlined Peter’s career as a leading journalist in Birmingham and also his abiding desire as a teenager to become a Spitfire fighter pilot – an ambition thwarted when, while flying training in Oklahoma, the dropping of the atom bombs abruptly ended the war.

During a memorable evening, W. Bro. John Stevens was Proclaimed as Worshipful Master for a second year.
