Dear Brother Secretaries and Scribes,
I forward below a message from the Provincial Grand Master following his visit to see RWBro Norman Manser at Sheffield Hospital yesterday. The news is very positive and I am sure your brethren will be interested to learn of his current situation.
With fraternal Regards,

RWBrethren and all
As some of you are aware I travelled north to Sheffield after RWBro Mike Gutteridge’s funeral yesterday to pay a surprise visit to Norman.
My progress was impeded by the weather the traffic and my inability to cope with them and follow Madam TomTom’s directions all at the same time.
Once I got there the only password I needed to establish where to find Norman was either his address or date of birth (7/11/27) the later was relatively easy as it was his 87th Birthday (not 88th sorry Norman).
What better present than another box of those mints he collects at festive boards.
Anyway Norman was in positive mood - they have started work on him and he is feeling the benefits and he does know he is booked in for 3 months – so not a quick job! He and his surgeon are extremely hopeful of getting him walking again.
You are all in possession of the address of the hospital and Norman’s mobile number but as further means of assistance I attach a map of the complex – he is in Osborn 1 in the building with a circle round it and the most convenient car park is F just above the circle.
This information could save you up to an hour on your visit (particularly if your weren’t exactly sure where you left the car!) and which will cost £2.50 for up to 4 hours in the car park.
A final ‘warning’ - Norman is now fully connected to the web and had already studied the farm and Peterborough Masonic Hall accounts
Sincerely & Fraternally
