Travelling to Timaru
In Timaru, New Zealand, Tony Mansfield has been installed as Master of Lodge of St John, No. 1137, more than 150 years after his great, great grandfather, William Mansfield, was installed as its first master. Tony, a Past Master of Prince of Wales Lodge, No. 1338, has taken on this role despite residing at Auckland, 770 miles to the north. More than 100 Freemasons attended to celebrate such a rare event, with some 26 masons travelling to Timaru from across the Cook Strait, including members of the Scottish Constitution.
