2015 Installation meeting

I had the pleasure of escorting the Provincial Grand Secretary to the installation meeting of William Long Mark lon the 16th October for the installation.
The installing Master, W Bro Julian Frost, following his two years as Master, installed W Bro Neil Dashfield into the chair. He, in turn appointed and invested Bro Richard Kilburn as his senior Warden and W Bro Alva Excell as his junior warden.
The next three officers were quite unusual, as the overseers were as Master, Mike Jarvis and his two sons, Paul Jarvis as Senior and Matt Jarvis as Junior.
A great evening was enjoyed by all who attended.

    Terry Arlow installed his successor Chris Beckett in an excellent manner watched by many members and visitors. The Lodge Charity Steward presented the PGM with a cheque for £500 for his appeal for St John Ambulance (and talking dogs). The address to the Master was given by the PGM, to the Wardens by RWB George Lee, Past PGM of Gloucestershire and Herefordshire, to the Overseers by Keith Fisher and to the Brethren by John Tossel. An explanation of the Keystone Jewel was given to the new Master by W.Bro David Jenkins the Craft PGM. It was a very happy meeting, with 2 candidates proposed it looks like good year ahead!
