School Friends – reunited as brothers
Geoff Taylor, Alan Brooks & Jim Spence attended the same Corby school back in the sixties, as it is well known Alan and Jim have been stalwarts of freemasonry in Corby for many years, both had lost touch with Geoff, until fate took a hand.
Geoff had a holiday in Madeira where he spotted a masonic ring on the hand of WBro Ben Ambler. Having seen the SKY 1 TV series ,which had piqued his interest, he then introduced himself and asked about Freemasonry.
Ben then extolled the virtues of the craft so much so, that Ben passed onto Geoff contact details for the Provincial office in order to understand how he went about joining Freemasonry in Corby.
Just a few months later all three school chums were re-united at Geoffs initiation into Ferraria Lodge #8489 .
One of the guests that night was no other than WBro Ben Ambler who had made a special trip from Somerset and gave a superb rendition of the charge after initiation to Geoff.
