New EA from Cardiff

Postby Simo6328 » Mon Jan 20, 2014 3:40 pm

Just a quick hello from myself.

I was initiated on January 18th 2014. I'm looking to gain as much new knowledge as I can on my journey through freemasonry, so thought I would take a look at this site. Whilst I am learning from the many topics in this great looking forum, I hope I can help also make a valid contribution.

God bless to you all and I looking forward to sharing and learning on my masonic journey.

Welcome to the forum Simo

I'm fairly sure I know the JD who toook you round the lodge on your initiation - Joseph? We were in school together (only a few years ago - honestly....)

Thank you all for your messages. I look forward to getting to know you all on this forum as my journey continues.

Bod, I believe the JD is called Joseph but as there were three of us who were initiated (we had to get special dispensation apparently), I was lucky enough to have a friend of mine, Gerald, take me around the lodge.

If it's the Gerald I suspect it is from the Provincial Yearbook (initials DGR) then you were highly honoured to be escorted by such a senior Brother

Yes Wayne. That's him. I was extremely honoured. Being totally new to freemasonry I didn't realise until the night how much of a big deal it was. He is a brilliant guy though and made the night extremely special for me. The lodge was full of welcoming brothers though. It was a truely great night. One that (as soon as I know what actually happened, it's was obviously a lot to take in) I won't forget it in a hurry.

I had the honour of escorting him in his first outing as an Assistant PGM - a really nice guy

That's crazy. It's a small world. Where are you from Wayne? I grew up in Merthyr Tydfil but moved to Dinas Powys about 5 years ago with my wife. I'm in the army so spend most of my time in Hounslow, London? How long have you been a freemason?

I've been a Freemason for almost 15 years - my Mother Lodge is in Caerphilly but I now live in Newport

I'm currently one of the Provincial Deputy Grand Directors of Ceremonies which is why I escorted Gerald

I was brought up in Gilfach Goch

Which part of the 'port are you living in Wayne? One of the nicer bits I hope!

Simo - Joe sat near you at the FB I gather - I'm hoping to persuade him to visit my lodge some time - maybe you and Wayne could come down too!
Aim for a Welsh take over one meeting so I'm not alone!

Welcome, from a brother who lives in Gwent but is a Past Master of Llynfi Lodge 2965 in Maesteg. Hopefully I'll see you in the Cardiff temple one day. Enjoy your masonic journey.
