Province and Travelling Ark arrive together!
On Mon. 6th December Thackeray Lodge was delighted to welcome not only the RW. PGM and the Provincial team, but 6 members of Irwin Lodge with the Travelling Ark. Despite being proffered the Sceptre the RW. PGM declined, giving the WC of Thackeray the chance to conduct his first RAM ceremony of the year. The Travelling Ark was presented by WC John Bathe-Taylor and the visitors from Irwin Lodge. The highlight of the evening was the Elevation of Bro. Richard Ellis, who all agreed would be a great asset to the Lodge. The evening was most enjoyable, and it was a pleasure to welcome so many visitors to Thackeray.
