Prestonian Lecture 2018

Derbyshire Lodge of Installed Masters met on Wednesday evening for the first official presentation of the Prestonian Lecture 2018.
The Lecture was both informative and entertaining and a number of the Brethren present showed interest in writing the sequel to it…… this space!
Three new members joined the Lodge and I think six more were proposed! All in all it was a great night for Derbyshire Freemasonry in general, but more importantly the Derbyshire Lodge of a Installed Masters in particular.
There were a number of people present including the Provincial Grand Master, Assistant Grand Master, three Prestonian Lecturers, present and past, and ten Association of Tercentenary Masters.

The picture above shows the three Prestonian Lecturers.

Hartington do Liversage

Four Past Masters of Hartington Lodge, ventured out in the cold to receive a warm welcome at Liversage Lodge.
Here they heard a very informative talk with a Naval theme, something our IPM found very interesting having spent some of his working career in this area.
We were all made to feel most welcome at the Festive Board too, which again had a fishy twist!

Hartington 1085’s first visit for the IPM

On Wednesday 14th March our Immediate Past Master made his first visit to Tutbury Priory Lodge 4873, where he saw one of his fellow Association of Tercentenary Masters Raise his Lecturer from College to the Third Degree!
There was some excellent Ritual carried out by the Officers who took part, making it such a memorable experience for Brother Charlie.
The visitors all thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

Hartington 1085’s first ceremony with the new Officers

Wednesday 7th March saw the new Officers of Hartington Lodge 1085 carry out their first ceremony, which was an Initiation.
Although this was the first ceremony for the members in their new office, the ceremony went really well and without hitch.
More importantly the candidate really enjoyed himself and had a warm welcome into Derbyshire Freemasonry.
