R.W Bro. David Ashbolt ProvGM and his full team of Provincial Grand Officers visited the London Installed Commanders Lodge 1227 to open the Provincial Grand Assembly and invest those brethren appointed to Provincial Royal Ark Mariner Grand Rank. These newly appointed brethren were welcomed by a very well attended meeting. The LIC Lodge went on to complete its business and was then followed by the London Installed Mark Masters Lodge where V.W Bro. Michael Barnes was installed as the new Master to the delight of the members and guests including very senior brethren from Surrey and Essex. The ensuing festive board was a most convivial and enjoyable repast.
