Another Candidate for The Sword of Constantine Court

The March meeting of The Sword of Constantine Court No.120 was held at the Croydon Masonic Hall on Tuesday 2nd March 2020. The Court was honoured with the presence of the Provincial Grand Master, RW.Bro. Lionel B Mee, KCAG, the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, W.Bro. Mark Donovan, KAG, and a number of Provincial Grand Officers of the year.

The Court was opened by the Worshipful Master, W.Bro. Glyn Harvey. The Provincial Grand Marshal, W.Bro. Chris Eley, was admitted and advised the Worshipful Master that the Provincial Grand Master was in the ante room and he demanded admission to the Court.

The Provincial Grand Master entered in procession with the Provincial team and was welcomed by the Worshipful Master. The Provincial Grand Master was then presented with the gavel and took the Chair. He said how pleased he was to be visiting the Sword of Constantine Court again. He then introduced the Provincial team, took the minutes and vacated the Chair.

A ballot was taken for Norman Jones a member of Yarborough Lodge and Lewisham Chapter. This proved in his favour. Bro. Norman Jones was Instructed into the Order in an excellent manner by the Worshipful Master, assisted by W.Bro. Leslie Grout and the Officers of the Court.
