The May meeting was the Annual meeting to Install a Master for the coming year. Worshipful Brother Gary agreed to continue in office, as Senior Warden John Vincent was unable to accept the offer this year as he was in the middle of his studies and did not feel  he would be able to do justice to the Lodge and himself  during the coming year, but hoped that at a later stage he might be able to fulfill this position in the future.

We were able to create a very interesting ceremony for Gary to continue in office which went very smoothly to the satisfaction of all members and guests.

The evening was rounded off with a “Cockney Supper” and entertainer who brought a selection of songs which the more mature members and guests were able to join in.

Since the meeting a number of the Brethren went on their Annual Dinner to the Robin Hood Thai restaurant in Loughton, this was the 15th year we have been to this venue and gives us a chance to Remember Worshipful Brother Harry Foulds who was a long time member and officer of the Lodge.

Whilst this is not a fund raising event we usually manage to raise a small amount for the Masters Charity this tear it was £45.

We will now be pressing on with the preparations for the next ceremony a Raising which will take place in October.

More news will be forthcoming in due course.
