Consecration

The Warrant for the Pulborough Royal Ark Mariner Lodge No. 1245 in the Ancient & Honourable Fraternity of Royal Ark Mariners was issued by the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons of England & Wales and [as it was then] the Dominions and the Dependencies of the British Crown on 7th November 1963.

Hence, in the Year Book of Mark Grand Lodge, the Lodge is shown as a 1963 Lodge. The Sussex Year Book, however, uses the date of Consecration, so Pulborough Royal Ark Mariner Lodge is listed as a 1964 Lodge, having been Consecrated at the Sussex Masonic Centre 25, Queen's Road, Brighton on Saturday 29th February 1964.

The Consecrating Officer was the Provincial Grand Master, RW.Bro Rev. Charles H. Mosse assisted by the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, W.Bro S.C. Addison with the Mark Provincial Officers

W.Bro G.W. Turner, ProvGSW Senior Warden
W.Bro R.A. Holland, ProvGJW

W.Bro Rev. J.E. Penney, ProvGChap Chaplain

W.Bro H.R. Dixon*

as Assistant Director of Ceremonies

W.Bro R.L. Siffleet, PAGDC as Organist
W.Bro P. Richard Whittington, ProvGIG Guardian

                     

* W.Bro H.R. Dixon acted as ADC in the late and unavoidable absence of W Bro Jack A. Hart, ProvAGDC who was due to fill that Office. The Brother who acted as Warder is not named.

There were fourteen Founders, and they held their Office for fifteen months to May 1965.

The Offices of Almoner and Charity Steward were not shown in 1964.  That’s because they were not authorised by the Grand Master's Royal Ark Council until 1982.  The first holders of these Offices in the Pulborough RAM Lodge were appointed in 1984, although the Lodge qualified as a Patron of the Mark Benevolent Fund [MBF] in 1983.  The Lodge subsequently qualified as a Grand Patron of the MBF in 1997 and as a Grand Patron [Gold Award] Lodge in 2015.

The preponderance of Members and Past Commanders of Hothampton Royal Ark Mariner Lodge No. 703 amongst the Founders, might suggest that the Hothampton Royal Ark Mariner Lodge sponsored this Lodge. There is, however, no mention of this in the Minutes of Hothampton Royal Ark Mariner Lodge and, in any case, all Royal Ark Mariner Lodges are sponsored by the Mark Lodge whose name and number the new Lodge is to bear.

It must be remembered, however, that Hothampton Mark Lodge No. 703 sponsored the Pulborough Mark Lodge No. 1245 in 1959, and that there was a high level of reciprocal visiting between those two Mark Lodges in the early 1960's. It was natural therefore that the Hothampton Brethren should form the nucleus of our Founding Brethren. It is understood that Bro William G.J. Dixon and Bro Cyril S. Scotcher were the main instigators of the Lodge. We owe a very great deal to them and, indeed, to all the Founders.

The By-Laws of the Lodge were, of course, adopted at the Consecration Meeting. They provided for four meetings each year - on the second Tuesdays of February, September and November, together with the third Tuesday of May. In February 1967, following a Notice of Motion at the previous meeting, Bro Ernest G.R. Fisk, Scribe, proposed that the meeting dates of the Lodge be changed to 1st Tuesday in February, 1st Monday October and 1st Monday in December [the Installation date remained the 3rd Tuesday in May].

Pulborough Royal Ark Mariner Lodge from its Consecration until 2006, when the October meeting was removed, was the only Sussex RAM Lodge meeting four times each year.

The Annual Subscription, Joining Fee and Re-Joining Fee were each fixed at £1.10.0d (£1.50), and the Elevation Fee was fixed at £5.0.0d (£5.00). The latter fee was reduced to two guineas (£2.10) a year later. The Annual Subscription remained at this level until October 1975 when the Brethren approved a twofold increase. It was again doubled (to £6.00) in October 1977, and further increased to £13.00 in February 1982. In 1989 they were £15.00. In May 1991 the Subscriptions had to be increased to £20.00. Over the years, owing to inflation, there had to be further increases in Subscriptions resulting in the current [2017] Annual Subscription being £65.00. The Elevation, Joining and Re-Joining Fees were amended in October 1977 and October 1980, before being raised to £10.00, £11.00 and £11.00 respectively in February 1982. Over the years, owing to inflation, there had to be further increases in resulting in the current Annual Subscription

The first meeting of the Lodge following Consecration was at the Masonic Temple, Station Road, Pulborough. This has been the venue for all subsequent meetings - and it should be noted here that every regular meeting of the Lodge has been properly held. At that first meeting, Bro William [Bill] H. Wareham was Elevated.

In the first year of the Lodge, three Brethren were Elevated and one Joined, but in the second year, there was only one Elevation, that being Bro John Irons, which took place at the Installation Meeting - a fairly common occurrence in those early years.

In the second and third years of its existence, several Meeting Dates were altered by Dispensation, and there was clearly a lot of discussion and dissatisfaction with the dates of the regular meetings. In November 1966, the Scribe gave Notice that at the next regular meeting he would propose ‘That the Regular Meetings of the Lodge be changed to the First Tuesday in February, the First Monday in October, and the First Monday in December’. Just three meetings per annum, in February, October and December. This was printed on the Summons for the February 1967 meeting and was duly put to the Brethren for confirmation and approved. Surprisingly, the Lodge next met on the third Tuesday in May 1967, when Bro William G.J. Dixon was Installed as Worshipful Commander; and the Lodge continued to meet four times each year despite no minuted Resolution to do so.

The By-Laws of the Lodge which the Scribe submitted following that February 1967 meeting do list four Meetings each year [the above three plus the third Tuesday in May]. These By-Laws were approved by the Grand Master's Royal Ark Council on 28th March 1967, and must take precedence over the Minutes. One can only assume that in 1967 the Brethren thought that the Installation Meeting was not a 'Regular Meeting'. However, our Lodge By-Laws have subsequently been updated and regularised to state that we hold regular meetings on the first Tuesday in February, the third Tuesday in May [Installation] and the first Monday December.

Tuesday 3rd April 1990 was a special day in the life of the Lodge as an ‘Emergency Meeting’ was called in order to Dedicate the new Lodge Banner.  This was carried out by RW Bro Clifford W.H. Jeapes, GMRAC (HC), ProvGM, assisted by W Bro James W.A. Webster, RAMGR, DepProvGM and the following Provincial Team: -

Treasurers

Some of the Lodge Accounts in the early years were accepted 'Subject to Audit', but the Minutes fail to record any subsequent report from the Auditors. Indeed the first minuted record of the Lodge Accounts being audited appears in 1972 after Bro Cyril S. Scotcher become Treasurer. It is pleasing to note that this has continued ever since with the Lodge Accounts being audited annually and we are fortunate, at this time, to have our Lodge accounts in the capable care of our present Treasurer, Bro Peter M. Smith.

Festive Boards

There have been around eleven venues for our Festive Boards. The original venue was the Red Lion Hotel, Pulborough, but we have also dined on several occasions in this Temple, and at the Five Bells Inn, Pulborough.

For about ten years Mrs P.H. Penfold catered for us at Sandham Village Hall following which Mrs D.H. Charman and then Mrs D. Woodhams who both looked after us for shorter periods.

 

Then we had a change in dining to the Swan Hotel, Pulborough followed by a meal or two at the Oddfellows Arms, Pulborough. In 1992, we, again, changed our dining to the Black Horse Inn at Amberley followed by a visit to the Blacksmith’s Arms, Adversane in 1993. However, we were soon back at the Black Horse Inn, Amberley from December 1993 until October 1996.

 

In 1997, the Lodge made another move back to the Red Lion Hotel, Pulborough, this being some thirty-three years after we had first dined there. This move didn’t last long, however, because albeit the food was good, the ambient temperature in the dining hall at this venue was just too cold! No amount of portable gas heaters, provided by the landlord, could keep us warm so we moved on.

 

A special note is made of the Installation in May 1997 when we decided to dine at the Crown Inn at Cootham. The food was just about perfect but the venue proved to be too small when forty-four Brethren dined in the Crown Inn conservatory. It was so cramped that when one got up - all around him had to get up! The food had to be passed around because the waiting staff couldn’t get to the tables.

 

Needless to say, sadly, we did not go back to the Crown Inn but were pleased to return to the Black Horse Inn, Amberley until 2000. The dining at the Black Horse Inn holds good memories in that the food was good, the room was small and the place had great ‘olde-worlde’ half-timbered charm. It was also different in that, many a time, when the wind was the right direction and someone closed the door the whole room would be filled with smoke from the open log fire! This smoky atmosphere somehow added to the experience making the food seem even tastier and, of course, it goes without saying that the company was always entertaining.

 

The Lodge had to find an alternative dining venue in 2000 when the Black Horse did away with their restaurant facilities so we tried out Brinsbury College and have been there ever since - a testament to their good cooking no doubt!

 

Notable Brethren

The Brethren who have graced the Lodge by becoming members, or by joining, have all been instrumental in our success over the last fifty years but there are some whose names should have a special mention.  They are -

RW.Bro James W.A. Webster who was Elevated into this Lodge in 1969, became our Worshipful Commander in 1973 and eventually rose to become Provincial Grand Master for the Sussex Mark Province from 1991 to 2000.

W.Bro Morris R. Averns was a Brother to whom the Lodge owes a lot - he joined this Lodge from the Three Grand Principals RAM Lodge No. 879, Penyrn, Cornwall on 4th February 1975 and soon became an invaluable member who took the Chair in 1981. He became Deputy Provincial Grand Master of the Sussex Mark Province from 1993 to 1997. To mark the great sense of appreciation for the support, guidance and wise council we owe to this Brother a commemorative disc has been commissioned and affixed to the Worshipful Commander’s Collar. 

W.Bro Percy H. Penfold was Elevated in 1972 and became our Worshipful Commander in 1980. He was a Brother who spent some eighteen loyal and active years as the Lodge Scribe [from 1973 to 1979 and 1982 to 1994]. During his tenure the Lodge flourished and was privileged to Elevate forty-four Brethren and have six join or re-join. As well as being an active Scribe he also organised, with the help of his wife Doris, the catering for the Festive Boards at Sandham Village Hall over a period of around ten years.

W.Bro Denis G. Colebourne, TD, was an active member who served time as our Lodge Scribe from 1979 to 1982 and was the Worshipful Commander in 1983. He became an Assistant Provincial Grand Master of Sussex [Craft] from 1987 to 1991.

W.Bro John J. Stanford was Elevated in 1968 and Worshipful Commander in 1974. Sadly, he died in 1989 but instructed in his will that money from his estate was to be used to commission a Lodge Banner. Through his generosity our Lodge Banner was made and then dedicated in April 1990. It has been in the service of the Lodge ever since. The Lodge Minutes of October 1973 state that W Bro Alfred E. Tout enquired whether it would be possible ‘for a board bearing the title of the Lodge and its Past Commanders to be obtained for display in the Lodge’. It was the same W Bro John Stanford who undertook to supply the Honours Board that we have on display to this day.

Last but not least we must mention W.Bro Bob Sillett, who was Elevated into this Lodge on 6th October 1969.  Bro Bob left us for a while but re-joined on 3rd December 2007.  So nearly 45 years after he was Elevated in Pulborough RAM Lodge W Bro Robert David Taylor Sillett  MBE RAMGR became Commander in our 50th Anniversary year.

To the Founders, the Brethren specially mentioned above, our Worshipful Commanders, Treasurers, Scribes, DCs, Lodge Officers, Members and our permanent guests, we owe a great debt of gratitude as all have contributed in making our Lodge flourish to date ‘like an evergreen tree whose leaves fade not’.

Now that we have reached this milestone of fifty years let us earnestly hope that the Lodge continues to develop so that, in 2064, when the Centenary Celebrations are enjoyed, the Brethren of the time will look back and say that their predecessors had, indeed, well and truly played their part in contributing to the success of this fine and friendly Lodge.
