Silence is golden for Bill
He may occasionally have been known as 'Whispering Bill', but Rectitude Lodge's William Eardley had plenty to shout about after chalking up 50 years of Freemasonry.
The affectionate nickname was applied by colleagues at Fylde Borough Council where Bill was employed as a clerk of works and senior maintenance officer.
It was one of many roles Bill held during a career that began with a 15 shillings a week pay packet as apprentice painter and decorator at Blackpool firm Riddles and Sons.
...
Bill remained a member of the Corinthian Lodge until after he and Audrey returned to the UK, and after he became a joining member of Blackpool's Rectitude Lodge in 1967. His proposer was Audrey's uncle, W Bro Bill Dabbs.
Worshipful Master
He made his way through the various Lodge offices before becoming Worshipful Master in 1978 then Charity Steward - a post he held for 12 years. A health scare meant Bill had to curtail his activities after becoming the DC in 1984, although he returned to lighter duties in 1990 as ADC for two years.
Paying tribute to Bill's leadership qualities, Terry said: "Your potential had already become evident in 1983 when you were duly recognised by the Province and appointed Provisional Grand Steward - which led to promotion to the rank of PPrSGD in 1987 and further, to that of PPrJGW in 1992."
Bill became Group Secretary of the South Blackpool Group in 1991, Group Vice Chairman in 1995 and Group Chairman in 2001.
He's also a member of Senatores Lodge of Installed Masters No 8966 - becoming Worhipful Master in 2007.
Promotion
Hardly a year has passed without Bill adding a new title to his collection of Masonic posts but other high points have included promotion to PPrGSN in the Royal Arch (1992) and installation as a Knights Templar in the Rose of Lancaster Preceptory No 157 (2000).

The overall excellence of the installation ceremony had not only impressed Philip Gunning but also accompanying grand officers Bill Eardley and Peter Bentham, Blackpool Group Chairman were equally enthused, so much so that after Peter had lavished praise on all the participants during his response to the first rising, Bill could not contain himself and felt duty-bound to add his own plaudits.
