The Lodge of Rectitude 502 has celebrated what is believed to be for that lodge a unique ceremony in all its 168 years.
Bro Leon Wright was initiated by his father W Bro Paul Wright, with his grandfather W Bro Peter Wright acting as Junior Deacon. The ceremony was concluded with the presentation of the Charge after Initiation given by the lodge’s octogenarian, W Bro Royston Haggett in his usual exemplary manner. The ceremony was followed by an excellent festive board with some eighteen visitors supporting the Wright family, one of whom had travelled from the Isle of Man especially for the meeting.
Having three generations in a lodge is unusual although by no means rare but Bro Leon is a fourth generation mason as two of his great-grandfathers, W Bros Ernest Wright and Joe Darling were long time members of Stivichall Lodge 5799. Although not claimed to be unique, this is indeed a rare occurrence.
