W. Bro Tom Bulmer PJGD passed away on 17th February 2021 aged 83 after a long stay in a care home where he had gone for respite care in May 2020 but got caught up by virus lockdown restrictions.
Tom's commitment to our Province since becoming a joining member of Fellowship Lodge In 1978 and his undoubted talent for raising millions for Masonic Charities and Help For Heroes are unbeaten.
He was appointed the first Provincial Charity Steward in the 80s after undertaking to assist with the 1997 Festival, enabling Lodges to achieve a record total in excess of £5 million.
He occupied the chair of Fellowship Lodge three times and was instrumental in starting the Lodge ‘School’ which gave great support to junior members coming up ‘the ladder’.
His unique input into the Lodge and commitment to Masonry in general will be sorely missed. He leaves wife Winn, Son Colin and daughters Gillian and Julie, in laws Julie, Nick and Chris not to mention numerous grandchildren. A successful businessman, Chairman of his own small group of companies in the Metal Finishing industry, whose energy and ability to motivate people was legendary and sorely missed by many. Mike Teanby & John Wade (WM), Fellowship Lodge
