It was a full house for the Installation meeting of Nailsea RAM on 10th October. The meeting started off on a sombre note with eulogies to three members who had passed to the Grand Lodge Above since the last meeting in March, W.Bros Peter Cornall RAMGR, Mick Thatcher RAMGR and Walter Wood RAMPrGR.
Before installing his successor the outgoing Commander Martin Slocombe completed an elevation ceremony. It was an excellent ceremony, one that certainly impressed the candidate Brother David Wyatt, all the officers performed their parts well, the signs and secrets were communicated by Sam Glen and the Working Tools by Derek Shailer. Following on from that The Commander installed his successor W.Bro Grahame Bodman who then went on to appoint his officers for the year. It was a great meeting with a very happy festive board afterwards.
