On the 13th January 2018, Bro Dean Richardson became the youngest ever Master of the Lodge.

Around 60 brethren attended the meeting which was opened by W Bro David Tait who also conducted the first part of the Installation Ceremony and obligated his successor. He performed to the very highest level during the meeting with the able assistance of his Officers. W Bro Ken Cownden took over for the Inner Working and placed Worshipful Brother Dean Richardson in the chair of King Solomon in what was a very good ceremony indeed. W Bro David Tait gave a word perfect address to the Master and W Bros Kevin Moore and Ken Birnie delivered the addresses to the Wardens and Brethren respectively with equal eloquence and aplomb.

All the officers involved in the meeting worked hard to achieve perfection and it was clearly evident that they had practiced hard and diligently for it. Following the meeting our stewards leapt into action, prepared the lodge room for the festive board, sold raffle tickets and ensured no brother had an empty glass during dinner. Unsung heroes!
