I attended Sir Walter Raleigh Lodge No.2958 at The Masonic Temple, Oreston, Plymouth on 20th June 2018 to present a certificate to Brother Keith Moorhouse on his reaching fifty years as a Freemason.
Bro. Keith was initiated into The Smithills Lodge No. 7068 in the Province of East Lancashire on 3rd January 1968 having been proposed by his father Bro. Harold Moorhouse. Bro. Keith Moorhouse moved to Plymouth in 1971 to take up a job as relief bank manager becoming president of the chartered institute of bankers in Plymouth and a council member in Lombard Street, London for four years.
He served in the Royal Navy reserves for twenty two years, being a founder member of Saltram Rotary Club and is now a Past President and holder of the Paul Harris fellowship medal . Bro. Keith Moorhouse has also been a member of Prudence Lodge No. 8946 in the Province of Huntington, Northamptonshire where he reached the office of Junior Warden.
He became a joining member of Queen Victoria Lodge No. 2655 and became a joining member of Sir Walter Raleigh Lodge No. 2958 on 20th January 1987 where he is a current member.
In presenting the certificate I brought the best wishes and congratulations of our Provincial Grand Master R. W. Bro. Ian Kingsbury and the Brethren showed their appreciation in the usual way. We all then retired for an excellent Festive Board ending yet again another happy masonic evening.
