Gloucestershire Freemasons Convene at Sea

Three Gloucestershire Freemasons were lucky enough to be on a ‘new year’ cruise to the Mediterranean, and realising that there were probably other Freemasons aboard, decided to hold a couple of Freemasons “get-togethers”.

With the blessing of the Captain and help of the crew, this was published in the ships magazine and as the invitation was extended to partners and widows, there were well over 40 in attendance with brethren from across the UK.

Brothers Robin Tudor and Reuben Wyatt organised the date and venue with the P&O staff and Brother Slater gave a talk on the work of the Masonic Charity Foundation and local charity giving from Lodges. Robin Tudor talked about the St John’s Teddy bear appeal (through his initiative, St. Johns has been providing teddy bears at Christmas and ‘bunnies’ at Easter to the children’s ward at Gloucester hospital for many years). Reuben Wyatt then talked about his visits to America. The brethren present were then given the opportunity to talk about some of their masonic experiences and you could have heard a pin drop when a brother told the story of how the Masonic hospital saved his life in the early 1980’s.

The topic of ‘multiple candidate ceremonies’ was also discussed and all agreed that it was a great problem for Lodges to have after many years in the doldrums.

An invitation to visit a Gloucestershire Lodge was extended to those present and everyone thanked ‘The Dursley Three’ for instigating two very enjoyable meetings !

We thank Reuben Wyatt and Robin Tudor for the article and pictures.
