On the 4th October the meetings of both the Socrates Lodge of Mark Master Masons No.794 and the Royal Ark Mariner Lodge were honoured with a visit of the Provincial Grand Master, RWBro. George Edward Bonham along with the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, WBro. Robert Andrew Stokes, together with ten Officers of Provincial Grand Lodge and thirteen Grand Officers.
The Royal Ark Mariner meeting presided over by Worshipful Commander, WBro ‘Buster’ Evans undertook an Elevation ceremony for Bro Charles Kendal Byrd who was later warmly welcomed into the Order by the ProvGM. The Mark meeting was presided by the Worshipful Master, WBro Des Hinshelwood, and was a business meeting with no candidate.
