Keith Buist, 50 years in Freemasonry!

2018 04 Installation

In 2023 W.Bro. Keith Buist PPAGDC celebrated his 50th year in Freemasonry. Having been Initiated in Lodge Caledonian 195 in Scotland, he was presented with a commemorative certificate by his Mother Lodge. Similarly, the certificate was to be presented to him in Camberley Lodge. However, on the day of the presentation W.Bro. Keith, who had been suffering from ill health, broke his leg at home in an accident. Such a momentous occasion could not be allowed to pass, so Keith's son Bro. David Buist stepped in to receive the certificate on his father's behalf.

Bro. David Buist is shown in the photograph receiving the certificate from W.Bro. Chin Guan Hwang SGD Assistant Provincial Grand Master.

2023 River Cruise

2016 08 13 bbq02On Saturday 19th August 2023 a group of Camberley Lodge members and friends gathered together for a short river Cruise on the "Lucy Fisher" a replica of a Victorian Paddle Steamer. on the River Thames from Runnymede. After an unpromising start, the weather cleared to bright sunshine and we enjoyed a relaxing cruise on the river, accompanied by an interesting commentary.

2023 08 19 Cruise2The cruise was organised by Worshipful Master Rick Comber who was accompanied by his wife Abi. After the tranquil cruise, we gathered together back at Runnymede for a happy picnic on the riverside. This was followed by a quiz, with questions compiled by our Worshipful Master. The event was enjoyed by all, including the several children present. As well as being great fun, the event was held to raise funds for the Worshipful Master's Charity MAN-UP which helps men with depression, suicidal thoughts, and mental health issues, through a network of volunteers.

2016 08 13 bbq03Several more events are planned in a full year of activities. We look forward to an "Old English Night" for members and guests, to be followed by a "White Table meeting and a Quiz night. The year will come to a great climax with a Ladies Festival in February at Camberley Cricket Club. All in aid of the same deserving charity.
