Bro Dan's Passing and Bro Geoff's 50th!

Wednesday 4th October saw Hartington Lodge Pass Bro Daniel Illsley to the Second Degree.
The Lodge was supported by the Assistant Provincial Grand Master W. Bro. Ian Copestake, the Provincial Assistant Grand Secretary W. Bro. Martyn Bailey, a number of Grand Lodge Officers, eleven Brethren from Spencer Lodge and visiting Masters.
The Lodge was opened by Bro. Peter Walklate – Worshipful Master of Hartington Lodge 1085 and Brother Illsley was Passed to the Degree of a Fellowcraft, assisted by the IPM W. Bro. Mark Campbell.
Once the Ceremony had concluded, the APGM gave an Account of Bro Geoff’s (who is also a Founding Member of Spencer Lodge) history and 50 years in Freemasonry. Although travelling extensively throughout his career, he has always remained loyal to the Craft. The 50 years Certificate was then read out by the ProvAGS on behalf of the Provincial Grand Master – Arthur Steven Varley.
All in all a great night was had by everyone.
