On 4th April our District Grand Prefect R. W. Bro Colin Woodcock MBE attended Broad Forde Lodge in Wiltshire at the request of and as a guest of Alex Purves to present him with his 70 years in Masonry certificate (Scottish Constitution). Colin says that the Lodge worked a very good (and unusual) ceremony of Raising - Alex is a leading light in the Lodges LoI and it showed!!
The Lodge was closed and Alex's family were invited in and Colin presented the certificate - tears of emotion all round!! As we know well - Alex is a much loved and regarded brother. Also Alex is going to be 90 years old on Wednesday 25th May - amazing.
