Bro. Robin Manchester, one of our newly made Brother’s, as a Fellowcraft Freemason, wanted to be able to make a contribution to the 2022 Festival for the Province of Leicestershire and Rutland.
As we were in lockdown he had to find a way to do this from home and came up with the “Entered Apprentice” wages casket, which are also the elements used when consecrating a Lodge.
I thought, this would be worthy of a mention in the magazine and hopefully in the UGLE Bulletin, as it both highlights what our Lodge are doing within the Province towards the 2022 Festival and perhaps attracting some interest from other Lodges.Bro. Robin, has so far sold some 40 caskets at a cost of £10.00 each + postage if required.
I’ve attached various photos for illustration together with details of how to order them direct from Bro. Robin.The actual size of the casket measures 10cm length x 7.5cm height x 6cm wide.
How to order and personalise your casket
• Select the colour you would like the casket to be.
Beech, light oak, medium oak, Redwood, Silver (grey) or Walnut
• Select the colour you would like the Square & Compasses and seals for the jars
Blue, gold or red. You can have a different colour on the lid and the jars if you prefer
The cost is £10.00 and once completed, the casket will be available to collect from myself in Leicester, or I can post at cost which is £4.70 first class recorded (UK Mainland) I am willing to post worldwide at cost.
Please consider I have been fortunate to be able to continue working throughout the lockdown and it could take me up to two weeks to make and send your casket
