New Century Chapter No 2860 held their 22nd Installation Convocation on Monday the 23rd January 2017.

Two members of St Laurence Lodge are members of this august chapter, W Bro (EC) David West and W Bro (EC) Len West. David has today come out of the First Principal’s chair and Len has been installed as Third Principal. It was an extremely well attended meeting with many returning visitors, some of whom are also regular and highly esteemed  guests at St Laurence. Many brethren will recognise them in the photos below.

After a very good meeting, the companions made their way to Westminster Pier where they boarded the Mayflower Garden for a trip up the Thames and a Burn’s Night Supper. The food, service and company were very good indeed. The evening’s entertainment included an excellent Scottish piper and a brilliant address to the poor old haggis by W Bro (EC) Jim Walker who also read a poem written by Robert Burns. Sadly, the evening seemed to finish too soon but below are a few photographs as a memory of a wonderful event.
