Wayne was born at a very early age and has not died yet, which is something he considers to be a bit of an achievement.

He joined Freemasonry in 2006, went into the chair for the first time in 2011, and started giving talks across several Provinces in early 2017, before joining NWAMS as a speaker in 2021.

He Is an accidentally established Masonic author and has had articles published in several Masonic and non-Masonic periodicals.

2023: Year in Review

I used to end the year with the “The Year that was XXXX” meme post.

I have not copied those posts over to this blog yet, and am unsure if I will, (I probably will when I get this place fully updated). 

But I did want to do some sort of look back over the year post, since this last year I got this site live(ish), I had a lot of fun giving talks, visiting lodges, promoting Blood Bikes, getting myself a speakers profile. Basically 2023 was a good year and I wanted to mark its ending in some way.


2023 was a fantastic year in relation to writing.

I finished writing a talk “The True Masonic Church” and even presented it several times.

My book “Widows Sons – Outlaw Bikers or Masonic Ambassadors” was the best selling masonic book in both the UK and USA on two different occasions. Ok, It was only an Amazon bestseller, but I am still proud.

The first of the NWAMS books that I am redoing is almost finished and should be released early 2024.


My Masonic year of 2023 was an interesting one. At the start of the year I installed my last successor into the chair and was not in any chair of any order for the first time in 6 years. I was also not on the progression ladder anywhere for the first time since I joined Freemasonry in 2006. I really enjoyed my retirement for the 10 weeks it lasted. I agreed to go into the chair of Clwyd College SRIA to help them out. I enjoyed my retirement while it lasted.

I also gave 4 talks on behalf of the North Wales Association of Masonic Study, along with 4 Blood Bikes talks to various Lodges.

In total, during 2023 I attended 49 masonic meetings (14 of which were visits) across 20 Masonic Halls. I ended they year on the new Masonic season which looks to be a busy one. I have therefore decided to record the year in a series of Blog posts The Year of a Busy Mason.

Blood Bikes

2023 has been a great year in relation to Blood Bikes Wales. I’ve been out and about all year long giving talks and presentations to various groups including :- Women’s Institute, Ladies Groups, Church Groups, Masonic Organisations, etc. 

From various talks we were able to raise over £15,000 which was a very good amount. I would like to thank everyone who has helped out over the year.
