Due to the suspension of masonic activity it is unlikely that those Brethren, Appointed in Active Grand Rank and those to receive a First Appointment in Past Grand Rank, will be Invested at the Quarterly Communication due to be held on Tuesday 9th June. However, they will assume their new Grand Rank on that date. It is hoped that the suspension will be lifted in time for the September Communication at which time those brethren are to be invested – further information will be provided nearer the time.
Summons, Booking forms & Minutes can be downloaded directly from the RAM page on the MMH Website

On behalf of the Mark Master Masons and Royal Ark Mariners of the Province of Northamptonshire and Huntingdonshire, I welcome you to our Provincial Website, which I hope you will find both informative and interesting.
Our Mark Province is steeped in masonic history, the oldest Lodge received its Warrant in 1879, fifteen years before the Constitution of the Province of Northampton, Huntingdon and Bedford in 1894. Previously the Province was known as Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutlandshire.
With the Constitution of the Province of Bedfordshire in 1985, the Province of Northamptonshire and Huntingdonshire was created and remains as such to this day.
The Province, of which I am the 11th Provincial Grand Master since 1894, consists of 16 Mark and 13 Royal Ark Mariner Lodges.
The two Degrees are collectively known as the “Friendly Degrees” and like all of the masonic degrees they carry an important message covering the manner in which we conduct our day to day lives and encourage learning and the expansion of our knowledge.
Should you like to join the “Friendly and Happy” Mark Degree or just learn a little more, please use the 'Contact Us' Tab.
