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

On Thursday, 9th July 2019 the Archbishop Æthelhelm Court No. 34 was honoured by a visit from the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, W.Bro. Mark Donovan, KAG.

After the Court was opened the Provincial Grand Marshal, W.Bro. Chris Eley, was admitted and advised the Worshipful Master, W.Bro. Rev Derek Williamson, that the Deputy Provincial Grand Master was in the ante room and demanded admission to the Court. The Deputy Provincial Grand Master entered in procession with the Provincial team, was presented with the gavel, took the Chair and was saluted with 5 under the direction of the Provincial Grand Marshal. The Deputy Provincial Grand Master said how good it was to be visiting his mother Court on his first Official Visit since his appointment and introduced the Provincial team, thanking them for their support.

The Deputy Provincial Grand Master was then invited to present a Grand Court Certificate to Bro Alan Hall, which was done in a very informative way.
