It is with great regret and sadness that we intimate the passing to The Grand Lodge Above of Bro. Peter Avent in the early hours of 9 October 2020. Brother Peter was Initiated in Lodge Rosslyn St. Clair No. 606 on 27th March 1985 and progressed to take his Mark Degree on 23rd November in the same year; he had recently suffered a very severe stroke from which he sadly was unable recover.As a Chief Inspector of Police, Peter was on the front line in many notable homicide cases throughout Scotland, including the Lockerbie tragedy.
Bro. Alex’s Ponytail
Congratulations to our DM/Almoner Bro Alex Barrett PM for fundraising a fantastic £3,000 for Prostate Scotland – last year Alex grew a ponytail and launched a competition to guess the length when it was cut in December 2019. Due to the current Covid-19 lockdown the cheque presentation ceremony was unfortunately not able to go ahead but we managed to get a socially distanced photograph. We are all so proud of our Alex and the huge amount he raised to assist in the defeat of prostate cancer. Even after his haircut that full head of hair will be the envy of many a Brother!
The Lodge AGM is held at this meeting in February each year with the main business being the adoption of the Balance Sheet and Accounts for the year 2018/19. Thereafter, the Initiation which had to be postponed in January will be held this evening following which we will welcome our first new Entered Apprentice of 2020.
Lodge Social – Friday 25th April 2014
The primary purpose of this social was not only to enjoy ourselves, but to present a cheque to the Red Cross for the Philippines Disaster Fund for £500. We were once again entertained on the night by “Just One And The Other”.
The Philippine Consulate for Edinburgh was present to witness the Cheque being handed over to the Red Cross.
We had a great visit on Saturday from the Brethren from Lodge Abercorn No114 Belfast, N Ireland Headed by The Assistant Grand Master Mason Of Ireland RW Bro Rodney McCurley (pictured centre front).
They joined us for some hospitality after their tour of Rosslyn Chapel.
