I had a wonderful evening yesterday at the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Provincial Grand Stewards Lodge No.9263. A terrific new lecture presented for the first time by stewards of the lodge. This was followed by a very lively festive board w...ith good food and wine. Significant sums were raised for the 2016 Festival in supporting the RMTGB. Many congratulations to all lodge brethren and in particular the WM, W.Bro. Paul Wright, and to master elect for the ensuing year W.Bro. George Mars. I have included some pictures of me being well cared for by some of the newly proposed stewards and the PGM, WM and IPM. I am going to rest up for a few days as I have a long journey this week in the company of a delegation from the Prince of Wales Lodge No 1705, from Gosport, who traveling North to attend the 150th anniversary of the Prince of Wales Lodge No 1012 in Bury Greater Manchester next Friday 11th July. I hope I get my picture taken during my visit so that I can post them here and on my website when I return. Please also chat with me on twitter, squarebear@squarebearmason
