    Dryden Pennington was a valued member of our Masonic Lodge, Whitehill 8425 in Bordon Hampshire. As you probably know he has sadly passed away after a valiant battle against cancer. We are gathering stories and interesting facts about him when we give his eulogy in March at our next meeting. If there is anything you would like to add please can you send them to me it would be most appreciated.

    1. Hello, Thank you for your message. We can absolutely gather some stories from our members, it would be a pleasure, and we’ll be in touch within the next 10 days. Many thanks / Luke
