Saturday saw the Annual meeting of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Derbyshire. Freemasons from all over the country gathered together to see a number of Brethren be given Provincial Appointments and also the launch of the 2025 Derbyshire Festival.
This was also an opportunity to purchase the new Derbyshire Festival Tie.
A target has been set by the Provincial Grand Master to raise £1.5 million for the Masonic Charitable Foundation and it was a great surprise to find out that we’ve already raised over £150,000.
The new tie is being modelled by three of the Province who were selling it on the morning.
Our Senior Warden, Worshipful Master and Immediate Past Master, all wearing their new ties.
The temple starting to fill up before the proceedings started.
As can be seen from the photos, it was a packed temple and an enjoyable time was had by all those who attended.
The after proceedings concluded with the Festive Board and a couple of sociable drinks in the bar!
