On the 8th December 2018, twelve members of St Laurence Lodge travelled to Saxon Hall in Southend where Nore Lodge No 3610 raised our Bro Mike to the sublime degree of a Master Mason. It was an excellent ceremony with all the members of Nore Lodge performing to a very high standard indeed. Also, our own W Bro Ken Cownden invested Mike with his apron and delivered the Tradition History.

The festive board was a delight with excellent food, company and fun; and entertainment by way of an electric guitar and Christmas songs.
