Prorsum Semper has always fostered excellent relationships with clubs from around England and Wales and most especially those from bordering counties. This was evident at a gathering after a invite from Prorsum Semper Secretary and WM of St Pauls – Scott Redpath. The visit was set up with the Cubit Club reaching out to neighbouring provinces to join together in combined lodge visits. This soon escalated into a to multi club conference with attendance from Cubit club (Worcestershire), Colonnade (South Wales). Brethren also came from Swindon, Wiltshire.
Portland streets capacity was put to the test with around 60 in attendance in a packed lodge room for the Initiation of Mr Matthew Goodwin, a serving British Army officer, whose late father, Frank Clifford, was a member of the lodge for many years. Frank was a strong supporter of the lodge of instruction and new members in general. It was therefore a fitting tribute to Frank that his son should be initiated in front of such a gathering.
The meeting was attended by Ian Davies APGM (Vice President of Prorsum Semper), Michael Dykes APGM Worcestershire (President of the Cubit club), Brody Swain Grand Pursuivant and 7 masters of other lodges.
The evening raised £250 for Cheltenham Open Door – To Read more about this wonderful Charity and the Lodge of St Pauls continuted support please see the article on Glosmasons click here.
The Cubit Club are keen to host a reciprocal visit to their province to continue to forge strong links between our clubs across Provinces.
