The Assistant Grand Master, Sir David Wootton, visited John Bunyan Lodge in Bedford last night in his capacity as Chairman of the Universities Scheme, and witnessed a terrific triple passing ceremony at Bedfordshire’s newest University Scheme Lodge. Making up a trio of Right Worshipful Brothers were the Provincial Grand Masters of Bedfordshire and Nottinghamshire, Tony Henderson and Philip Marshall.
The John Bunyan team passed one of their own, plus two from the Cumberland Lodge in Luton, another Universities Scheme Lodge, ably assisted by a trio of Deacons from Cumberland. Sir David then presented four members of John Bunyan with their 2026 Festival Jewels and the Lodge with their Bronze Festival award.
A packed house then enjoyed a fabulous Festive Board in true boisterous Bedfordshire style.
