At the regular Salem Lodge, No. 1443 meeting held on Monday 20th June, W Bro Derek Webber PPAGM presented 50-year Certificates to two Salem Members, W Bros Roy Crocker PPJGW and W Bro Colin Adams PPJGW.


This was a first for Salem Lodge and probably an unusual occasion within Masonry.

As usual W Bro Derek gave a very detailed history of both the recipients, including reference to Roy Crocker being born in Greenway and his mother being the cook to Agatha Christie who, as a boy, Roy used to enjoy afternoon tea with on many occasions.

Both recipients thanked W Bo Derek for his comprehensive presentation and expressed their appreciation of the friendships they had made over the years and the pleasure enjoyed from masonry in general and Salem Lodge in particular.
