R. W. Bro. Philip Birch and Iris celebrates 60 years

Our Past Provincial Grand Master, R.W.Bro. George Henry Philip Birch and his wife Iris celebrate 60 years of Marriage.

On the 8th September the family and friends of R. W. Bro. Philip Birch and his wife Iris gathered at his son Peter’s home to help them celebrate 60 years of marriage.

There were over 75 guests present, including many Masonic friends who enjoyed a most excellent buffet in the beautiful setting of Stainton Hall Farm.

An amusing toast to the couple was proposed both Peter and Kathleen Birch, which received the usual humorous response one expects from our Past Provincial Grand Master, and the cutting of the cake completed a most enjoyable afternoon in the sunshine.

Over £400 was raised in lieu of presents for the Gurkha Welfare Trust.

Congratulations Philip and Iris on such a wonderful achievement.
