Greetings one and all,
I trust this finds everyone well. Warmer weather we hope, now that Spring is here (just hiding behind the continual rain!) It was good to see so many brethren from far and wide at Avant Garde's Installation which helped overcome a few of challenges of the afternoon and a good breakfast was enjoyed at W. Bro. Roger Bryant's home on the Sunday.
On the 25th of September, in conjunction with the Research Lodge, Lodge United No. 456 will be hosting John Belton, a travelling lecturer from England. It promises to be a very interesting evening, Tyling at 7.30pm.
On the 7th October Lodge Hinemoa No. 786 S.C. are having their Installation. I shall be representing Grand Lodge and would welcome any support. Visitors from 2p.m. Grand Lodge at 2.30p.m.
I shall then be away on holiday returning for Lodge Ikaroa No. 115's Installation on the 24th.
Preparation for this event is well under way and we will have our Divisional Grand Master in attendance. It would be really great, brethren, to see as many there as possible.
A Grand Lodge visit to the Research Lodge follows on the 25th. This will be the presentation of the Niblock Memorial Lecture which again promises to be an interesting and informative evening.
Best wishes and fraternal greetings,
