Essex Freemasons of Old Libertian Lodge No. 6096 know all about having good foundations on which to re-build for the future. The Lodge proudly possesses two Ashlars carved from part of the Foundation Stone of the City of London Guildhall when it was removed for restoration work and thanks to the revamped Member’s Pathway, they now have another very good reason
The Members’ Pathway is all about helping Lodges grow by helping them plan, attract new members, engage with existing brethren and encourage back inactive Freemasons. The member of the Provincial Grand Master’s Leadership Team with responsibility for bringing this about is Assistant Provincial Grand Master, Rob Eels.
The Assistant Provincial Grand Master is supported by the Provincial Grand Membership Officer Ray Quiddington, Deputy Provincial Membership Officers Dave Hawtin and Joe Curtis; Communications for the group are managed by Paul Kelly, the Provincial Pathway Officer Daniel Broyd, plus Group Membership Officers supporting the Masonic Centres.
Rob Pye and Brian Woodward are Grand Membership Officers for Upminster. As the Secretary for Old Libertian Lodge No. 6096, Rob Pye is most enthusiastic about the benefits the Members’ Pathway can bring to Lodges.
On 16th December 2021 the Brethren of Old Libertian welcomed Tony Medcraft into Freemasonry. Rob Pye enthusiastically explained 'Tony Medcraft is the third Pathway candidate to be Initiated into the Lodge. If any Lodge Secretaries or Membership Officers which meet at Upminster Masonic Hall want more information about membership or how I can help please get in touch with me'.
The new Provincial Members’ Pathway Team is all set to support every Lodge in Essex. Following a successful launch event at Braintree, a series of province-wide presentations are planned with the next one at Chelmsford Masonic Centre on Sunday 30th January 2022 at 12 noon till 2pm.
