On 5th December, our founding Master W. Bro. Andy Delamere had great pleasure when he installed his successor W. Bro. Simon Clare into the chair of our lodge. The event was enjoyed by over 70 members and visitors and everyone enjoyed the ceremony and enhanced buffet.
The new Worshipful Master was well supported by brethren from his home province.
During the meeting the outgoing master also presented a cheque to the 2019 Shropshire Masonic Festival for £2,019 which was a cumultative total of all money received during his year of office.
Some of the comments we have received about the meeting include:-
“Just a note to say how much I enjoyed the Installation meeting on Saturday. It was very interesting and impressive and gave a dyed-in-the-wool traditionalist like me a bit of a shock to realise that there is another way! Good for you and your lodge.
Please pass on my grateful thanks to
your Master and Brethren for their generous hospitality and for the warmth of their welcome. I wish your new Master and his team a very happy and successful year.” and
“I really enjoyed the meeting and the buffet was excellent. I hope to be at the next meeting in February.”
