W. Bro. Henry Hobson APGM and indeed the member of the delegation were treated to a very accomplished Installation ceremony when they visited Prince of Wales lodge on the 20th May. The incoming Master W. Bro. Simon McCarthy already being in the chair of Albatross lodge the necessary dispensation was read out by Brother Secretary. Considering that the Installing Master W. Bro. Richard Maggs was an acting Master for the ceremony and only had a short time to prepare he performed the ceremony to a very high standard as did the other officers who equally only had short notices of the offices they had to perform.
After the meeting and the usual group photograph the Brethren retired to a most enjoyable festive board via the bar where in addition to the usual toasts the Worshipful made a point of toasting the new joining members who have helped to swell the ranks of the members and indeed the offices of the lodge.
