Freemasons Pay Tribute to Community War Dead

Members of Stokenchurch Lodge recently paid tribute to our war dead by cleaning up military graves in the South Bucks village of Stokenchurch. 

They descended on the churchyard of St Peter and St Paul in the centre of Stokenchurch to polish up the headstones of seven men and two women who fell in the 1914-18 and 1939-45 conflicts. John Colling of Stokenchurch Lodge says: “Freemasonry is all about friendship, integrity and charity, so we couldn’t think of a better way of putting those principles into practice by sprucing up the military graves, a century after the Great War began.”

Pictured are Stan Ramsey, Richard Rivett, John Colling, and Steve Jones, with the assistant to the parish clerk, Helen Daly. Stokenchurch Lodge meets regularly at the masonic centre in St Peter Street, Marlow, to support the community.
