Kidsgrove Mark Lodge No 1503 was very much a family celebration on Monday 21st March 2016. With a full team of Provincial officers in attendance, the delightful Kidsgrove Temple was full and W. Bro Paddy Knowles did a splendid job of Installing Bro David Edwin Beckingsale into the Chair of Adoniram. What made it extra special however was the fact that “Dad”, VW.Bro Andrew Beckingsale PGJO and a Past Assistant Provincial Grand Master was also there to support David and had been asked by our Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro David Edwards to deliver the Address to the Worshipful Master which he did in his usual exemplary fashion. W.Bro David is a fourth generation mason and Mark Masonry in particular flows through his veins, his Grandfather RW Bro Douglas Edwin Beckingsale was Provincial Grand Master of the Mark Province of Gloucestershire and Herefordshire from 1983 to 1986. The whole evening was conducted with dignity but was enjoyed by all present, with over £300 being raised for Masonic charities.
