Last night two of our members attended Bretby Lodge for their Installation. Brothers Jack Anthony (who is a member) and Peter Walklate.
It was an emotional evening for some Neil Simnett the Lodge Secretary gave the toast to the Master Andrew Higson, who have known each other for a number of years through kick boxing. The out-going Master John Haynes, Andrews Seconder, having had two years as Master, due to the very sad Passing of his Brother Steve, who would have naturally followed in succession.
The ceremony was excellently lead by John, who allowed Neil to carry out the Inner Workings, with him being the Master Elects The Festive Board, was a typical Bretby affair, with a lot of banter, drinking and fun.
Paul Foster the Provincial Junior Warden, was the Officer in Attendance and the personal representative of the Provincial Grand Master. He gave some great Publicity for the Movember Charity and raised quite a bit of sponsorship money. Thank you Brethren for your generosity, even if Paul was ridiculed for his Mo!
