At the last regular meeting on Tuesday the 15th of November Estune Lodge welcomed in their Newley made Brother Matt Parsons, Matt is a serving member of Avon Fire and Rescue and first found an interest in Freemasonry whilst talking to Somerset Freemasons who supported the local Beer and Cider community event held at Nailsea and Backwell Rugby Club, he soon found that a number of his friends where actually Freemasons and took the next steps to enquire about Joining, he was proposed by Bro Mark Raby and seconded by Bro Stewart Galway who can be seen in the photo below with Matt. It just goes to show supporting community events does reach out to potential candidates.
The new officers for the year appointed by WM John Wyatt performed an excellent ceremony, The evening was also supported by a number of visiting Brethren who made this night a special one for Matt, we thank you all and we hope you enjoyed your evening.
The festive board was well received by all with a delightful meal catered for by Sam and her team of ladies. The evening was closed with the raffle and a game of heads and tails for a Bottle of Highland Park whiskey kindly donated by Nailsea and Backwell Rugby club in recognition of the support given at the recent community firework display.
We look forward to doing this all again when we have our second candidate of the year being initiated on the third Tuesday in December, we look forward to giving a warm welcome to our visitors.
