The Worshipful Master of the Lodge of St Paul No. 6516, WBro George Fletcher, together with the members of the Lodge Committee were determined that COVID-19 would not prevent them from acknowledging 50-years of service to Freemasonry by two of its senior members, WBro Peter Mobbs PPJGW and WBro William (Bill) Cox SLGR.
Knowing that both brethren were residing in care homes, Lodge Almoner Bro Trevor Pywell PPJGD enlisted the help of their daughters, Sarah Mobbs and Deborah Horne, to present 50-year Golden Jubilee certificates to them whilst carers kindly took photographs to record the events for posterity.
The lodge wishes to record its grateful thanks to the Provincial Grand Secretary, WBro William Diggins, who arranged for the printing and framing of the certificates prior to dispatch.
