Grand Rank Annual Investitures at Freemason’s Hall, London
Two very special occasions took place in late April at Freemasons’ Hall in London. Lodge DC, W Bro Paul Ryder was promoted to Grand Rank in the Craft along with four other brethren from the Province of Northumberland. The brethren were all nominated for Grand Rank in recognition of their service to the Province. Pictured here with Provincial Grand Master RW Bro Ian Craigs and other brethren of Hotspur Lodge.
The meeting was followed by a very special and splendid celebratory dinner in the evening; at the Guildhall for those promoted and at Cutlers Hall for guests.
The following day Lodge secretary E Comp Philippe Pagès of Ridley Chapter was promoted to Grand Rank in the Royal Arch along with two other Companions of the Province.
