Hello from newbie in Newark on Trent

Postby Matt Hurley » Thu Mar 26, 2015 10:34 am

Hello to all,

I have recently found this forum, and wanted to introduce myself. I am originally from West London, but moved in 2005 to the North East of Scotland. I joined Lodge Forbes No 67 in Rosehearty, and was raised towards the end of 2007.

Couple of years later completed my Mark degree in the same lodge.

Due to work commitments have been away from the craft for a couple of years, but now living in Newark on Trent and looking to return to the fold.

Thanks for a great forum

Yours fraternally
Matt Hurley

Welcome to the forum Matt - we have a few Notts masons here

Thanks for the kind words of welcome,

Lloyd, it is indeed a small world, I don't know Cambridge, Ontario, but have family in Hamilton and spent many a happy time there. Also spent time studying at McMaster University, and loved every minute of it.

Peter

We have mutual friends. :-)

I had the privilege of attending the installation of Brother Grant PM as Provincial Grand Master :-)

It was held at our Mother Lodge at Rosehearty, and a very well attended installation. As a member of Lodge Forbes, I remember him as one of the first of my Brethren to congratulate me as I took my first seat in the lodge after my initiation.

I have been away from the NE for a couple of years now, but nice to be reminded of some of the brothers I have left behind.

Cambridge is about 30 min. north of Hamilton. (Canadians tend to measure distance in driving time)
