At the first meeting of the new season on 15th September, Brierfield Lodge was honoured by a visit from our new Assistant Provincial Grand Master, WBro John Farrington, PSGD.
In the absence of the WM on a business trip, the Lodge was opened by the Immediate Past Master, WBro David Biggs, who welcomed WBro Farrington and offered him the gavel, which was politely, but swiftly returned.
There followed a eulogy for our Chaplain, WBro Mike Landriau, who had been called to higher service on 9th June. Officers unable to be present at the Installation meeting were invested and conducted to their posts.
A short talk on the Opening and Closing Odes was then given, after which the business of the Lodge was completed and all retired to the festive board.
A generous bequest from our late Brother, Mike Landriau, provided a drink for all the members and their guests and so ended another happy and fulfilling evening of Freemasonry at Brierfield Lodge.
