Following the release of the list of Provincial Officers for the 2019-2020 year, W. Bro Brian Bell wrote to the Provincial Grand Master in March, informing him that due to his continuing health problems he felt unable to accept the active office of Provincial Grand Assistant Charity Steward, to which he had been appointed. In his response to W. Bro. Brian, The Provincial Grand Master expressed his complete understanding and thanked him for his hard work and his positive enthusiasm over his five years in the Office of Provincial Grand Charity Steward and for the way he gave encouragement to the Lodge Charity Stewards in promoting both the MBF and the Provincial Mark Benevolent Association.
Best wishes and fraternal regards

On the 5th March at the Huntingdon Masonic Centre, the Provincial Grand Master, Right Worshipful Brother Robert Andrew Stokes, attended the Installation of Brother Mark Howell as Worshipful Commander of Socrates Lodge RAM No. 794.
After an excellent installation ceremony by the Installing Commander, Worshipful Brother Ian McColl, the Provincial Grand Master unveiled a collection of Mark Benevolent Fund Steward lapel badges dating between 1946 to 1980 in honour of his visit. Presented in a display case, they had been recovered and collected by W.Bro. Howell and would be suitably displayed at the Huntingdon Centre.
In thanking Brother Mark, Right Worshipful Brother Stokes, said they would be a lasting legacy and reminder of the work Mark Master Masons give to the MBF and charity in general and would be an honour to the Province perpetually remembered in the Huntingdon Masonic Centre.
