95 Freemasons congregated at Freemasons Hall Banbury to witness the Installation by Proclamation of W. Bro Michael Anthony Allcott serving for a second term as Master of the Lodge.
15 active Provincial Grand Officers were also welcomed, principle amongst was the Deputy Provincial Grand Master – Neal Spencer and the Assistant Provincial Grand Master – Alan Knowles.
The Provincial Grand Master of Warwickshire, David Macey also graced us with his presence along with a retinue of visitors from our Masters Mother Lodge, the Lodge of Allegiance 6000 meeting in Sutton Coldfield.
Additional seating was needed to accommodate an impressive galaxy of Freemasons from all over the Province and beyond. The Ceremony of Proclaiming the Worshipful Master was led by the Immediate Past Master W. Bro Ray Potts.
This most important of tasks was carried out in a sincere and faultless manner illustrating all the hard work plus coaching from the Director of Ceremonies, Worshipful Bro Christopher Gold supported by the Wardens, Officers and Brethren of the Lodge.
The Ceremony was followed by a festive board at which a party atmosphere pervaded making the whole evening an unqualified success.
Everyone attending the festive board received a commemorative gold finished mug courtesy of Bro Kevin Wright Design Studio.
Many thanks to all who attended in support of our Installation and 40 th Birthday meeting.
Here’s to the next 40 years !
