What a fabulous turnout of Durham brethren who supported the Provincial Grand Master in attending United Grand Lodge of England, Great Queen Street, London to witness the Installation of a new Pro Grand Master, Deputy Grand Master and Assistant Grand Master.
The mass exodus of Durham Freemasons to the Capital City was of course tinged with sadness as London was full to the brim with people paying their last respects to Queen Elizabeth II who was lying in state at Westminster Hall in the Palace of Westminster.
The meeting in Grand Lodge was a spectacle to see and was performed with meticulous attention to detail and for many brethren who had never attended this magnificent Lodge , it will leave a lasting impression on their minds.
At the conclusion of the meeting the Durham brethren made their way to Covent Garden to dine at St Martin’s House Restaurant which had been booked weeks beforehand and this proved to be a wise choice of venue. The meal was first class and matched by the quality of service of the staff. The Provincial Grand Master concluded by paying respect to our late Queen Elizabeth II and finally toasting the King and the Craft.
