Double elevation at Nailsea RAM
The snow wasn't enough to prevent 36 Royal Ark Mariners attending Nailsea Lodge of Royal Ark Mariners No 1548 on Wednesday 13th January to see the Commander, John Morgan elevate two new members. David Palmer is a member of Nailsea Mark Lodge of MMM No 1548 and Barry Burridge the Immediate Past Master of the Goodwin Lodge of MMM No 1563 in the Province of Bristol. Barry is better known to most of us as the Right Eminent Provincial Prior of Somerset in the order of Knights Templar.
The Provincial Grand Master, David Nelson and his Provincial team were also at the meeting swelling the numbers attending to 38 despite the awful weather. It was an excellent ceremony by John and his team followed by a very good festive board.
The elevation of David and Barry takes the Lodge membership to 50, making it the largest Royal Ark Mariner Lodge in the Province of Somerset.From left to right David Nelson PGM, Barry Burridge, David Palmer and Commander John Morgan.
