90th celebrations at Hugh de Pudsey
The brethren of Hugh de Pudsey made sure that celebrations were top of their to do list at the last regular meeting. One of their members, Gordon Toft, was celebrating his 90th birthday and the brethren were not going to let it go unnoticed. Despite Gordon not looking 90 years old, Gordon is a very active member of the lodge and likes to get involved and regularly entertains the brethren by providing harmony with his exceptional singing voice. Gordon currently holds office and is Senior Wardon at Hugh de Pudsey.
Thanks to Mrs Elaine Wharton, wife of Graham Wharton, were given by the lodge members and Gordon in particular for making a beautifully decorated and delicious cake.
Many happy returns Gordon.
