St Helena 378 Enthronement
The Conclave was honoured with the presence of the Deputy Intendant General, V. Ill. Kt. Fredrick Ernest Hargreaves who witnessed excellent Enthronement and Consecration Ceremonies at St Helens Masonic Hall on Friday 11th September 2015.
Pt Kt. Ron Pearson enthroned Pt. Kt. Darren Brown in a shortened Ceremony, and Darren in turn Consecrated E. Kt. David Hickman as V.E. in an exemplary way.
V. Ill. Kt. Fred Hargreaves congratulates Darren and David following their Investiture.
W. Kts insist on getting in on the act and also extending their best wishes to Darren and David.
Note the Divisional Marshall (Geoff Gill) and his Deputy (Steve Gregory) stood at the back
(left) of the group ever alert and keeping their eyes on the proceedings.
Unfortunately, Ron had to leave straight after the Ceremony to fulfill his work commitments. He left so fast we didn't have time to include him in the photographs!!
Conclave Marshall, Steve Gregory, averts his eyes as the Deputy Intendent General
and MPS get stuck into a well earned noggin (or 2)
at the Festive Board as they take wine with the W. Kts.
Overall a successful evening enjoyed by all present.
