Outstanding Service

The Provincial Grand Master, John Thompson, had the pleasure of heading up his Mini Team to a special celebration at Benfeldsyde Lodge.  Peter Hough received a well-deserved promotion to Past Provincial Senior Grand Warden for 60 years of service to the craft and recognition for all his meticulous work in running the building at Blackhill Consett.

After a second-degree demonstration ceremony Peter was asked to join John for the informal seated chat on the carpet, in front of the master’s pedestal on Saturday 7th October 2023. Peter moved to Consett at the age of 5 from Manchester and was educated at a local school with Eric Heaviside. He then went on to serve his time at Consett Iron Company and was initiated into the lodge in 1963.

After the chat, Eric assisted John to invest his old school mate Peter, with his new apron and collar.

At the festive board Peter was presented with an engraved glass, garden ornament and etched slate to mark 60 years of outstanding service to the Lodge. Peters’ wife Christine was also presented with flowers from the lodge for supporting her husband over the years.
