This evening also saw the departure of W.Bro Richard Baber (right) from the office of Scribe of the Lodge having held that office since Noah was a lad! Well since 2001. During the evening the Commander thanked Bro Richard for his sterling service to the Lodge during the last 15 years. He is succeeded as Scribe by W.Bro Mike Nathan (above left) who is also Scribe of Herbert Fuller Lodge and Somerset Commanders. Mike is now considering his future and thinking of turning pro.

    This charity provides a mobile chemotherapy bus & Somerset Mark Masons will be providing a new support vehicle to transport staff, drugs & sometimes patients to the outlying areas where it is stationed for that day.

    The overall target to provide the vehicle is approximately £14,000.
    Cerdic Lodge only has 18 members at present & this is a huge gift from the lodge.

    At our installation meeting on Wednesday Sept 1st 2011, Bro Kevin Aylott was installed as Commander in an exemplary manner by W.Bro Bill Newton. The meeting was attended by RW Bro David Nelson, Provincial Grand Master for Somerset. He was accompanied by Bro Andy Gray, Provincial Asst Grand DC. The meeting was a very happy occasion and the DC was very proud in the manner that the ceremony was conducted. (Despite the slanderous rumour that the Installing Master was working to the 1935 Ritual Book!) Peter Knapman.
