The new year had hardly started when W. Bro. Tom Quinn DepPGM made his first Official Visit of 2018 to Mallet & Chisel Lodge No5. Accompanied by a large Delegation the visiting brethren and members of No. 5 were treated to a fine afternoon of RAM and Mark Ritual. The afternoon kicked off with the Elevation of Bro. Graham Hodgson. The ceremony being ably conducted by W. Bro. Brian Hollands. Thereafter the new Commander, Chris Drew, was installed in a very efficient and sincere ceremony by the outgoing Commander – Ken Howard. After a pause for breath the brethren regrouped and W Bro Barry Pewter, WM, Advanced Gary Willmott into our Honourable Order. The photographs amply illustrate the enjoyment of the day, which was rounded off by an excellent Festive Board, which itself was enhanced by a brief visit by the PGM and RW Bro. Eddie Goodwin, PAPGM, to take wine and stop for the obligatory photographs.
