No. 3899

Family History


In November 2010 W Bro Mike Hodkinson Master, & the members of Lodge of Goodwill 3899 enjoyed a very special night at the Severn Street rooms when Mike initiated his father Norman.

The evening was even more special as with Mike's father becoming a mason the Lodge notched up a rare Masonic treble and double. The treble is achieved by having three fathers and three sons in the same lodge concurrently, the double being two fathers being initiated by their respective sons.
