A third generation was welcomed into Helios Lodge No. 8311 when Alexander Burton, at the age of 20, was Initiated at the Wilmington Masonic Centre in Kent on 9th May 2018
Alexander's father, John Burton, Treasurer of the lodge, acted as the Junior Deacon and conducted his son around the lodge room during the ceremony.
He was also looked on by his grandfather, Michael Burton, lodge Secretary, who recorded the ceremony and made sure everything went off properly. It was back in 2001 when Michael then had the pleasure of initiating his son John.
The lodge was honoured by the presence of James Marsh, Assistant Provincial Grand Master of West Kent, who, as the previous Provincial Grand Secretary, arranged for Dispensation to allow the lodge to initiate Alexander three weeks prior to his 21st birthday.
