It was a very special occasion when W. Bro. Nigel Codron recently visited Hillingdon Heath Lodge, No. 7259 for the 3rd Degree Ceremony of Bro. Aaron Cook.

Aaron’s father, W. Bro. Ian Cook, and grandfather, W. Bro. Derek Cook, are Members of the Lodge, as is one of his uncles, W. Bro. Howard Heyd.

They were also joined by another uncle, W. Bro. Peter Langley, to make this a unique ceremony and family affair.

Bro. Ian took the Chair for part of the Ceremony and was ably assisted by Howard & Peter who acted as SW & JW.The Lodge were also treated to a super Graveside Address from W. Bro. Roger Tomlinson.

Bro. Aaron said “Having grown up around Freemasonry, I am proud to say that I have followed in the footsteps of both my father and grandfather in joining and recently becoming a Master Mason.

My exposure to Freemasonry began at a young age.

I have always remembered my father attending Masonic meetings and I have fond childhood memories of helping him at previous Masonic Festivals.

As with any boy, my father has been one of my biggest idols throughout my life and I recognise the significance that Freemasonry plays in his life.

I realised that the Masonic principles that he values, I share too.

Even before joining Freemasonry, I was also privileged to have met many Brethren through my father.

All of whom only furthered my decision to join.

Upon joining two years ago, my expectations were only surpassed. I look forward to continuing attending Hillingdon Heath Lodge and Lodges abroad, now that I live in Germany.

I aspire to not only continue a family tradition, but also look forward to making new friends and developing as a person throughout my progression in Freemasonry.”
