Simon Stocker was in good company when he received his 30th Degree from the Supreme Council of Rose Croix, the Ancient and Accepter Rite, because with him to receive the same honour was Lincolnshire’s craft PGM Dave Wheeler.
Simon is a past Sovereign of Sleaford Chapter No 806, and David is a Past Sovereign of Sancta Maria Chapter No 167 in Lincoln. Simon was supported by his father Michael and John Hockin, both 32nd Degree. They are pictured with the Inspector General for Lincolnshire District Trevor Clingan after the Ceremony.
The 30th Degree is conferred by the nine members of Supreme Council meeting at Duke Street in London, and is for Candidates who have satisfactorily completed a year in office and enthroned their successor.
