With a headcount that was more than impressive and the presence of our own PGM David Ashbolt, the PGM of Northumberland and two of his Senior Officers, plus RW Bro David I Williams and the Grand Secretary RW Bro Angus Hannagan the scene was set for VW Bro Percy Larner, the outgoing Master to Install his successor in fine manner. The New Master appointed and invested his Officers with touches of that great wit that he is known for.
It was really fabulous when the Deputy PGM, Tom Quinn and 3 of the APGMs namely Henry Hobson, Cliff Sturt and Tim MacAndrews were presented with their Grand Patron Gold Collarets and Chris James was presented with his Grand Patron one.
Over 100 of us dined together in great friendship and fun and the various appeals to Charity raised £1200.00. Wonderful. Just Wonderful!
