On the 11th January 2020, Bro Reiss Duthie became the Master of the Lodge.

A total of fifty eight brethren attended the meeting which was opened by W Bro David Crow who also conducted the first part of the Installation Ceremony. He was assisted by W Bros Lawrie Morrisson, Peter Wilks, Ken Cownden, David West and other Officers of the Lodge.

Addresses to the Master, Wardens and Brethren were given by W Bros Len West, Lawrie Morrisson and Ken Birnie. W Bro Len West also gave the address on the commemorative jewels on the Master's Collar.

At the festive board, brethren enjoyed a Burn's style meal, complete with a Highland Piper and an excellent address to the haggis by W Bro Jim Walker of the Fellowship and Unity Lodge No 8680.

The Master's song was delivered by a choir of St Laurence Brethren. It received a very favourable reception indeed, with the usual brotherly comments such as "Rubbish" and "Get Off".
