Assistant Provincial Grand Master W Bro Eric Rymer presented a 50 year Service to Freemasonry certificate to W Bro Brian Hoyles at the Lodge of Warwick 8011, where Brian is the senior Past Master, having been Master in 1982.
This was followed by a 3rd degree ceremony when Bro Max Dehaut, a Belgian member of the Lodge, was raised with Brian delivering the Exhortation and Charge in an exemplary manner.
Also present was W Bro John Webster, to whom Eric had presented a 50 year certificate the week beforehand at Warwickshire Royal Air Force Lodge 9456 where John is Senior Warden. During his visitor's greeting W Bro Ted Byron of Lee Torre Lodge 7253 welcomed Brian and John into the "Frisky Fifties" Club, he also having received his 50 year certificate on a previous occasion.
