At their meeting at the Solihull Masonic Centre in Knowle, the members of Fletcher Lodge 1031 welcomed Assistant Provincial Grand Master W Bro Trevor Sturt, who presented a 50 year Service to Freemasonry Certificate to Honorary Member W Bro A John S Neale, who was initiated into the Lodge in 1964 and became Master in 1977.
Also present were long standing members W Bros Norman F Webber (39 years), Anthony J Wall (51 years) and Claude E Barnwell (60 years), who with John have given an amazing total of 200 years service to the lodge between them. This nearly reached 250 years, but sadly W Bro Harry Whomersley passed to the Grand Lodge above last year after receiving his 50 year presentation in 2012.
