Peter Meadows 50 years And A Night To Remember | Durham Freemasons

A quite unique evening in Hartlepool saw Peter Meadows not only awarded his 50 years continuous service to the Freemasonry Award from AsstPGM Andrew Moule, but an impromptu  field promotion to the Rank of Past Provincial Junior Grand Warden, from the PGM John Paul Thompson.

Peter responded to the Awards with a humorous response as he  detailed his life experience in freemasonry, dating back to his childhood when his late father would arrive home from Clarence meetings. Following in his fathers footsteps he became he became a technology teacher or as he more fondly described a ‘Wood and Metal’ work teacher as he looked around pointed out a number of his former students within the Lodge room.

His enthusiasm for freemasonry was epitomised in his reflections of days gone by, coupled with a quite remarkable his clear vision for its future.

To add to an already tremendous evening, Lincolnshire Freemason Chris Jones having arrived in Durham on Thursday 26th January on his Round Great Britain walk in Aid of the Lincs2025 Festival for the Masonic Charitable Foundation, was welcomed as a guest of Clarence Lodge 2462.

Chris was absolutely, overwhelmed to receive a donation for the sum of £1000 from Durham Benevolence and further donations of £100 from St Helens Lodge, £100 from Clarence Lodge, £200 from Harte Lodge, £100 from Strathearn Lodge and a personal donation of £120.

At the festive board Peter was presented with a Gold Full Hunter Pocket Watch from the Worshipful Master Steve McKie on behalf of the lodge,  in accepting the gift Peter stated he would treasure the evening the magnificent watch forever, and in conclusion stated that on his passing his wish was to donate it to Clarence Lodge,  to be passed on from  generation to generation in perpetuity..

Peter is truly shining example to all, and an inspiration to the younger membership within the Clarence Lodge, we congratulate him on his promotion and may he have many happy and healthy years ahead to enjoy it.
