With over 50 brethren in attendance, including a healthy representation from Morley Lodge, who Guthlaxton Lodge have formed a strong relationship with over the last few years, the installation of Bro. Dorian McKillop into the chair of King Solomon was a great success.
The Worshipful Master appointed Bro. Carl Ackers (SW) and Stephen Topham (JW) with great aplomb as he did with all his officers. Provincial Grand Lodge representative, Very Worshipful Peter Kinder, commented that he had not seen some of the addresses for some of the officers undertaken before, which was testament to the time and effort Bro. Dorian put into the ceremony.
With such a healthy attendance the Festive Board was a very jovial affair where the Steward’s carvery (rack of beef) went down very well.
In his closing remarks the Worshipful Master commented that he was looking forward immensely to his year in office and to the support of the officers of the lodge throughout that year.
He also reminded the Brethren of the upcoming social events in May and September and hoped that the lodge would support those events as much as possible.
The proceedings were closed in peace and harmony with the new ‘team’ all looking forward to their first ceremony, a third degree, on March 16th 2016.
