On 1st March the Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro Stuart Hadler, along with some of the Provincial Team, made a fraternal visit to the oldest lodge in the Province – Royal Cumberland Lodge No.41.

The PGM took the opportunity of his visit to present the Lodge with their fourth Ashlar recognising their contributions to the Province’s 2020 Festival, and congratulated all who had made this possible.

The highlight of the evening was to initiate Mr Alexander Gibson into the order.  The ceremony was performed with great skill and professionalism by the Worshipful Master W Bro Richard Thurston and his officers, who did the candidate proud.  The Festival Board  afterwards was a splendid affair and everyone, including the new candidate, had a very enjoyable evening.
