At Dalecote House in Coventry on Wednesday 15th June 2016 the Brethren of the Lodge of Serenity and all the visitors to the Lodge took great pleasure in the Worshipful Master, W Bro Taz Bhachoo conducting the ceremony to initiate his younger brother, Amandeep Bhachoo into the Craft. In addition to being initiated by his brother, he was escorted around the Lodge by his father, W Bro Balbir Bhachoo, who acted as Junior Deacon and is the current Worshipful Master of Coventrian Lodge No 5982. It was a real family affair and a proud moment for Brother Dad – quite an achievement with two WMs and now a Brother Initiate in the Bhachoo household.
The Meeting was also attended by the Provincial Visiting Officer, W Bro Derek Hughes on his second official visit to the Lodge. W Bro Derek brought greetings on behalf of the Provincial Grand Master and he congratulated Bro Amandeep on becoming a Freemason.
The Charge in the North East and also the 1st Degree Working Tools were presented by Bro James Dalton of Stivichall Lodge No 5799 and the Charge after Initiation was given by W Bro Russell Starr in a most exemplary manner.
Surprisingly, this was the first Initiation of a Brother into the Lodge of Serenity, being the only summer lodge in Coventry, since W Bro Taz was initiated in 2010 and with 5 new joining members this year, the Brethren are hopeful that Serenity is now re-emerging and growing in strength for the future of the Lodge.
