A busy meeting at Surrey Council


On Monday 15th February, Surrey Council No. 64 had a busy day at Croydon Masonic Hall. The Council were honoured by the presence of the District Grand Prefect, Right Worshipful Brother Ray Hussey.

The District Grand Prefect was pleased to see the Council perform two ceremonies. Firstly, four brethren from across Surrey were created as Knights of the Red Cross of Babylon. Bro Steve Jones was the representative candidate. This complex, two-part ceremony was led by the Deputy District Grand Prefect, WBro Frank Powell and the Council Secretary, WBro Mike Neville. Several roles were taken by Grand Officers, including WBro Arnold Long.

Next, Brother Norman Jones, a busy Croydon mason, was welcomed into the Order after completing the degree of St Lawrence the Martyr.

The Acting Master, WBro Terry Carpenter thanked all the brethren, who had assisted in the ceremonies.

With a joining member, as well, the membership of Surrey 64 continues to grow. Some thirty brethren enjoyed the Festive Board. The next meeting of the Council is on Monday 6th June - Installation and ANOTHER new member - so room for a few more!

If you are interested in the history of masonry and the development of ritual - this is the Order for you. Members must by Mark and Royal Arch masons.
