Bro. Ken was advanced into Backworth Mark Lodge No. 1189 on 14th April 1981 and became Master in 1989, eventually becoming DC in 2014 and then again in 2018. His first Provincial Appointment came in 1994 with promotion following in 1999. He was then appointed to Grand Rank in 2003 when he was awarded the rank of Past Grand Inner Guard.

He continues to be active in the Mark and Royal Ark Mariner Degrees and is well known throughout the Province. He remains a strong supporter of the Orders visiting many other Mark and Royal Ark Mariner Lodges.

On his visit to the latest meeting of Grainger Mark Lodge No. 1147, where he is an Honorary Member, the Lodge presented to W. Bro. Ken a bottle of ‘Linkwood 15 year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky’ to help him celebrate his birthday!

We wish W. Bro. Ken all the very best for his birthday and hope that he has many more years of enjoyment in the Mark.
