Cherleton Lodge No.8439, which meets in Cheltenham, had a possibly unique occasion at the Installation of W Bro Craig Fellows on Tuesday 8th November 2011.
On hand to present the Working Tools to the newly installed Master were his father W Bro David Fellows, who presented them in the third degree, his older brother W Bro Matthew Fellows, who presented them in the second degree, and his twin brother W Bro Ashley Fellows, who presented them in the first degree. Also on hand to offer support was his uncle, W Bro Bob Hill, who proposed him into freemasonry.
His father and elder brother are also currently serving as the Worshipful Masters of Hands of Friendship Lodge No.9758 and Seven Springs Lodge No.7223 respectively - not often that you get a father and two of his sons in the chair at the same time!
After the Lodge meeting the Brethren moved to the dining room for the Festive Board. More than £500 was collected for charitable causes. Feedback from the event has been extremely encouraging. The Provincial Grand Mentor W Bro Toby Jones announced that this first evening will be followed by a series of similar events for new Masons around the Province.
