A very enjoyable and unusual evening was had by all who attended Vikings Royal Ark Mariner Lodge on Tuesday 22nd April.

The lodge was very pleased to receive the Provincial Grand Master RWBro George Bonham and the Deputy Provincial Grand Master WBro Brian Ennever, who were also accompanied by the past Deputy Provincial Grand Master WBro Richard Turpin and the Provincial Deputy Grand Director of Ceremonies, WBro Bob Stokes.

The evening proved to be a most unusual Installing meeting, The Provincial Grand Master was pleased to communicate the secrets of an Installed Commander to Bro James Leonard Acott and this was followed by the installing Master WBro Barry Stephenson, Installing Bro Norman Russell Sidey also into the Commanders Chair.

After the installation Ceremony was concluded and the officers appointed and invested, the Provincial Grand Master then had the great pleasure of promoting and investing WBro Jim Acott to the rank of Provincial Royal Ark Mariner Grand Rank. This was done in recognition of the many years of loyal service shown by Bro Jim, including holding the office of Scribe of Vikings RAM Lodge No 245 for fourteen years and all the brethren gave a heartfelt round of applause.

The whole event came as a tremendous surprise to Bro Jim who had no idea of what was planned for him. When he addressed the brethren he was clearly touched by the occasion and thanked the Provincial Grand Master and the brethren present for such a wonderful honour.

The evening concluded with a very happy and joyful festive board.

WBro Tony Potter
