The brethren of Lodge of Tranquillity No 3877 have a busy year ahead with a number of ceremonies planned, these include the celebration of the WM Alan Carter’s 50 years in Freemasonry in January 2018 and the lodge celebrating its centenary in October 2018, in between there is plenty of work to be done the first of which was to raise Christopher Edwards to the third degree.
At the regular meeting of Lodge of Tranquillity held at Woolton Golf Club the lodge was opened by WM Alan Carter, on conclusion of the routine business the lodge was opened to the second degree.
Senior deacon Roy Brewis and junior deacon Carl Davies attended upon Christopher Edwards who confidently answered the usual questions leading from the second to the third degree. Christopher then retired, in his absence the lodge was opened in the third degree.
Christopher was then readmitted into the lodge and was raised to a master Mason in a sincere and dignified manner by WM Alan Carter. Christopher retired from the lodge and on his return to the lodge, the traditional history was delivered impeccably by Alan Carter.
The WM closed the lodge down to the first degree and further lodge business was conducted. All the business now being concluded the lodge was closed all retired to the dining room to enjoy the festive board.
