This becomes even more poignant when considering the candidate was introduced to Freemasonry through the Provincial Discover Freemasonry initiative.
At that meeting a cheque was presented by the Worshipful Master’s son, W. Bro Adam Bending, the Lodge Charity Steward, to W. Bro Paul Huggins APGM PSGD for the amount of £1,700.00, plus an additional £450 donation from their Relief Chest, making a total donation of £2,050, which then qualified the Lodge for Grand Patron Status.
What a wonderful “baptism” for Bro Laurence to be present at such a significant event in the annals of the Lodge.
Roxeth Lodge was formed in 1949 and its name refers to the area south of Harrow Hill.
Etymologically the name Roxeth originates in Rooks Heath and the Lodge Crest as shown on the Summons depicts two rooks, a mulberry tree, whose leaves were said to feed silk worms, hands representing friendship and a well representing the founding first Master of the Lodge Edward Atwell.
Hopefully the successes of Roxeth Lodge 6905 in the last year both in membership growth and in charity augur well for the next 70 odd years.
A grateful thanks to W. Bro Paul Huggins APGM PSGD for this contribution.
