W. Bro. Henry Hobson in his role as an APGM and Visiting Officer to the Savage Club Lodge paid his annual visit to the Lodge accompanied by a delegation of Provincial Grand Officers. The December meeting being the Installation meeting, the main work of the evening was to Install W. Bro. Robert Gaywood, a Past Master of the Lodge, into the chair of Adoniram by W. Bro. Steven Thomas. After the new WM had appointed and invested his officers and the addresses had been given the usual agenda items were proceeded with.
Due to the late arrival of the Almoner of the Lodge it fell to the acting Master Overseer to rise and inform the Brethren of the sad news that VW. Bro. Michael Lawson PGSW and a Past Assistant Provincial Grand Master in the Province of London and a member of the lodge for 26 years had passed to a higher office on the 19th November. The APGM then rose and gave a short history of the work that VW Bro. Michael had done for the Province over the many years that he had held office in the Province.
On that sad note the Brethren retired to the festive board which on this occasion was an 86, St James carvery.
W. Bro. Richard Veness
