The University of Birmingham Lodge 5628 enjoyed an unusual occasion when it initiated a man who was already a Master Mason.
Bro Adam Doveston is an Operative Mason and recognised all the working tools as those of his craft. He joined the lodge through the UGLE University Scheme, holds an Honours Degree in Construction Management and is a member of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
As well as Freemasonry Adam enjoys a variety of interests including Clay Pigeon shooting, History, travelling and Art. Unsurprisingly he also enjoys Architecture and Stone Carving (including taking part in the European Stone Festival), as well as good cigars and whiskey, and brewing his own beer and port!
All members are hoping that Adam will speak at one of their meetings about Operative Masonry and wish him the best of luck in the craft!
