On Monday 6th May, 2013 at 7:15 pm  at the Broadview Masonic Hall,

Thorngate Lodge  No.118  performed a Re-Affirmation of Twinning Ceremony with the Duke of Edinburgh Lodge No. 16.

 

This enhancement of the Bond of Friendship between these two Lodges first began in August 1986 when  WBro. Jack Enever was a member of Thorngate Lodge No. 16 whilst at the same time member of Duke of Edinburgh Lodge No. 16.  The Duke of Edinburgh Lodge No. 16 approached Thorngate Lodge No. 118 and asked them to twin.  This invitation was accepted and has been re-affirmed every three years since that date.

 

Currently there is still a  member who belongs to both Lodges, namely VWBro. Robert John Hughes.
