On the 20th of February 2016, the University of Birmingham lodge no.5628 had the honour of raising two brothers to the sublime degree of master mason. Though we have had many raising in recent times, this one was quite special. This was because, this was the first raisings to be held by our lodge at our new home in Severn street masonic hall.
The day itself was one to remember, particularly by those brothers who have been waiting patiently for this day to finally come. Though nervous, they went through this hallowed ceremony with dignity. Though a very personal ceremony, they were not alone, for they had the company of those brethren both lodge member and visitor alike watching over and guiding them, through a day that they will always remember.
