A splendid and unique meeting of Hibernia Lodge on Monday 18th March 2019 when WBro. Phil Elder installed Bro. Stephen Roberts as the new Master. The Installation was conducted with fine ritual by WBro. Elder to a lodge room of around 60 brethren. The lodge was honoured by the presence of some very distinguished brethren including MW. Pro Grand Master Raymond Smith, RW. Bro. John Prizeman Deputy Grand Master, RW. Bro. Stephen Davison Assistant Grand Master, RW. Bro. David Ashbolt Provincial Grand Master for London and RW. Bro. Michael Whelan Provincial Grand Master for Dorset. The festive board was held at the In & Out Club in St. James Square where the food and wine was enjoyed by brethren in high spirits. A charitable collection was made on behalf of 3 members of Hibernia who are cycling from London to Amsterdam in June to raise funds for St. Christopher’s Hospice in South London. Just over £300 was generously donated by the Brethren present.
