Forest Ridge Lodge No. 8306 in London marked their meeting on 19th April 2018 with a special event, as they presented a 50 year long service certificate to Laurie Cousins and a Grand Lodge certificate to his grandson Rickie Bloom
Laurie was initiated into Freemasonry in 1967 and has been a member of Forest Ridge Lodge since 1971. He was awarded London Grand Rank in 1993.
The meeting, held at the Southgate Masonic Centre, was in the presence of Metropolitan Grand Inspector Chris Burgess PSGD and was also witnessed by the rare sight of seven sets of fathers and sons, who are all members of the lodge, as well as a father and grandson in Laurie and Rickie.
Forest Ridge Lodge has a long history of father and son members. This dates back to their Primus Master Cecil Wershof PAGStB, with his son David still a member of the lodge.
