The Provincial Grand Master, R W Bro John Herbert Prizeman attended the November 2015 meeting of Bournemouth Mark Lodge No 125 when he was delighted to present Long Service Certificates to three Brethren who between them had achieved 142 years service in Bournemouth Mark Lodge.
W Bro Cyril Penny, PProvGSW topped the list with 52 years service, followed by W Bro Colin Atyeo, PProvGJW, with 50 years and W Bro Ron Nutt, PProvGJW with 40 years. W Bro Colin was Worshipful Master of the Lodge in 1975 and during his year he not only Advanced W Bro Ron but also Installed W Bro Cyril who attained the Chair in 1976. Both Cyril and Ron are nonagenerians and the Lodge was pleased to confer Honorary membership on W Bro Cyril during the meeting. W Bro Ron is still very active and is the current Lodge Chaplain. In congratulating all three recipients on their magnificent achievements, the Provincial Grand Master said that they were a marvellous inspiration to all brethren.
Following this presentation, the Provincial Grand Master announced that the Lodge had qualified for its MBF Grand Patron award and he was delighted to present the Worshipful Master, W Bro Alan Bailey with a Collaratte. Needless to say a very happy Mark atmosphere prevailed throughout this very special night for Bournemouth Mark Lodge.
