The Seymour Lodge of Mark Master Masons met at the newly re-opened Victoria House on Tuesday 18th October to Install their new Worshipful Master. W.Bro.Peter Manning, who is currently an Assistant Provincial Grand Master in the Craft performed an exemplary Installation Ceremony, putting W.Bro.Derek Lodge into the Chair of Adoniram. Indeed, our very own Assistant Provincial Grand Master, W.Bro.Barry Ratcliffe, who was promoted to Past Grand Junior Deacon at Mark Grand Lodge on the 11th, was particularly delighted to witness such a fine Ceremony. Addresses by W.Bro.David Evans, Prov.GJW and W.Bro.Paul Harrison, Prov.GSO were beautifully delivered and warmly received. The Provincial ‘Team’ was further supported by Provincial GJO, W.Bro Graham Humphreys.
Our hearty good wishes go to W.Bro.Derek Lodge for a happy and productive year in the chair and hopefully with lots of candidates! It is indeed a delight to see a good number of acting Provincial officers supporting our Executive team at as many Mark meetings as possible. Often, acting rank is only for a year so, if you’re in post please make the best of it.
