Morpeth Mark welcomes its latest member

On Thursday 20th April 2023, Morpeth Lodge MMM No 691 welcomed its latest member into Mark Masonry.

The candidate on the evening was Bro. Richard Brian Erskine and he was advanced into the Order in an exemplary manner with the ceremony being conducted with dignity and sincerity by the Master, W. Bro. Denis Beecroft ProvGAlm, and the officers of the Lodge. Special thanks going to W. Bro. Stephen Matthews P.A.G.D.C. for his explanation of the signs and secrets of the degree.

After the ceremony had concluded the DPGM, V. W. Richard Northey, welcomed Bro. Richard into Mark Masonry in Northumberland and hoped he had many happy and enjoyable years within the Order. The DPGM then presented an Advancee’s Pack to the candidate which contained, among other things, the Northumberland Mark tie, handkerchief, ritual book, history of the Province and more useful information.

The DPGM also took the opportunity to formally welcome a joining member into the Lodge. This being Bro.
