My name is Colin Shields, I have been a Freemason since 1994 and have enjoyed every minute of it. Being a Freemason has enabled me to meet fellow Masons from all over the world, but most of all I enjoy the friendship and camaraderie.
I was born in East Hull and educated at David Lister Comprehensive. I then worked for a Hull timber company for 34 years. Following that I had my mid-life crisis and lived and worked in Spain for 11 years.
When I moved back to Hull, I was again able to attend my Lodge on a regular basis, as whilst living away I could only visit once or twice a year, but was made to feel like I had never been away.
