Not the full age of 21 years

The Candidate at Danetre Lodge’s meeting on the 4th of April 2016, Mr Adam Reynolds, was born in February 1997, making him only 19 years old.

Because of his age and studies, his Grandfather, WBro Alan Randall, currently Director of Ceremonies of Danetre Lodge, had never broached the subject of becoming a Mason with Adam, no improper solicitations, and so was surprised when Adam made the approach.

The required Dispensation was granted by the PGM who was already scheduled to attend the meeting of the 4th and so was present to see Adam initiated. On the evening Danetre’s WM vacated the chair to allow WBro Randall to obligate his Grandson.

Adam’s home is Craighall Castle in Blairgowrie, Scotland; he studied at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester before moving to live in London where he attends the Royal College of Music studying music in general and the tuba in particular. Do we have a budding Organist looming?

Although Adam’s father never joined Freemasonry, his heritage is extensive, with his grandfather, both great grandfathers and his great great grandfather being members of the Craft along with several great and great great uncles.

The PGM welcomed Bro Adam to Freemasonry in General and the superior Province of Northants and Hunts in particular (he admitted to being somewhat biased on this) and informed Bro Adam that he had joined a popular and thriving Lodge.
