Official Visit by the Deputy Provincial Grand Master to Archbishop Æthelhelm Court

On Thursday, 10th July 2018 the Archbishop Æthelhelm Court No. 34 was honoured by a visit from the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, VW. Bro. Michael Ellis, KSM, PGSwdB

The Court was opened at 5.00 pm by W Bro Andrew Fox, Worshipful Master, with many members and visitors in attendance at the Nutfield Masonic Centre.

The Worshipful Master received and welcomed VW. Bro. Michael Ellis, KSM, Deputy Provincial Grand Master, on his official visit to the Court. VW Bro Mike thanked the brethren for their warm welcome, and introduced the accompanying Provincial Officers.

A ballot was taken for Instruction into the Order for W.Bro. Alan Michael Hall, a member of Gatwick Lodge No 2502 and Surrey Arts and Sciences Chapter No 5310. This proved in his favour. Also present to be Instructed was W.Bro. Laurie Young, who was successfully balloted for at the previous meeting. Bros. Laurie and Alan were Instructed into the Order in an excellent manner by the Worshipful Master ably assisted by W.Bro. Leslie Grout and the Officers of the Court.
