Travellers finished on a third

The last meeting of Travellers Lodge No 4679 concluded the Masonic season on a high note by conducting a third degree ceremony for Jonathan Williamson, which was witnessed not only by several members of the lodge, but many visitors from across West Lancashire and Cheshire.

Jonathan Williamson was the candidate for the ceremony which was skilfully conducted by Barry Corcoran WM and most ably assisted by Peter Hayes, a lodge member.

Jonathan Williamson a mortgage advisor from Grappenhall, Warrington was raised to the third degree in due ceremonial style and it seemed like an ideal opportunity to celebrate not only the raising of Jonathan but the end of a very successful and enjoyable season.

The evening was well attended by several visiting friends from across West Lancashire, masters of other lodges in the Warrington Group and brethren from the Province of Cheshire, mainly from Barry’s other lodge being Kinderton Lodge No 5759, which meets in Middlewich, Cheshire.
