W Bro Peter Muriel 60 Years a Freemason

The celebration of W Bro Peter Muriel's anniversary of his Initiation started on the 15th of November, when he was presented with his 60 year Certificate from his mother Province of West Lancashire. The Presentation  took place at the meeting of Phoenix Lodge No 1730 in Manchester. W Bro Muriel only expected the Worshipful Master of St Pega Lodge, Bro David Headley to attend the meeting, but to his astonishment, twelve other members of St Pega Lodge paraded into Phoenix Lodge after W Bro Headley’s admission.

The celebration continued at the December meeting of St Pega Lodge, when W Bro David Gray, the Lodge's Liason Officer, presented W Bro Muriel with his 60 year Certificate from the Provincial Grand Lodge of Lincolnshire. Peter was initiated into Great Stone Lodge No 6737, becoming Master in 1969, before the Lodge amalgamated to form Phoenix Lodge. He was, and still is active in Royal Arch Masonry, his labours in Foundation Chapter being recognised by Supreme Grand Chapter by him being awarded the honour of PGStdB in April 2000. As well as being a member of Foundation Chapter, which he still regularly attends despite a round trip of 300 miles, he is a member of Hereward Chapter No 1232 and is Liaison Officer for St Guthlac Chapter."
