Everything was different about this Provincial Meeting! The venue was the same, the meeting was happy and relaxed, the Webbington was full but the meeting was different!
The meeting commenced at 11.00am prompt with Past PGM David Nelson presiding. The Installation of a new Provincial Grand Master, R.W.Bro. Philip Voisey who was carried out by the Pro Grand Master, M.W.Bro. Raymond John Smith. The Pro Grand Master was ably assisted by a team of officers from Grand Lodge.

The meeting continued with the appointment by the new PGM of his Deputy PGM, Tony Guthrie. Following this the Pro Grand Master retired with his team and the 'normal' business of Provincial Grand Lodge got under way.

The main business was to appoint the officers for the year, staring with the new Senior and Junior Wardens.

All the officers of the year were subsequently invested, together with the brethren who had been promoted in Provincial Grand Lodge. A full list of officers is available here.

The new PGM swiftly dealt with the remaining business and the meeting was concluded at 12.45, something of a record for a Provincial meeting. After the PGM together his senior officers and distinguished guests had retired in procession the room was quickly prepared for Lunch.

On this special day even the lunch was different! For the first time ever the Ladies were invited to join the brethren for lunch on this special occasion. This proved to be a very popular move forward by our new PGM. It was a very special meeting, enjoyed by all who were fortunate enough to attend, made all the more special by our ladies joining us for lunch!
