The Annual Provincial Meeting 2023 - Another Successful Event at Hexham!

Saturday 23rd September 2023 was another landmark in the calendar of the Mark Province of Northumberland. After the wonderful day that we had in 2022, we again held our Annual Provincial Meeting in the Tynedale Farmer Suite in Hexham Mart.

 This again proved to be a good choice and was highly successful, the meeting going without a hitch. This was testimony to the great effort put in by the Secretariat and DC’s team to ensure that all went well. The meal afterwards was again first class, with excellent service from all the staff at the venue.

Many congratulations go to all those brethren who received appointments, re-appointments and promotions in Provincial Grand Lodge on the day, they were all very well deserved, and we hope that they have a happy and enjoyable year in office.

Many thanks go to our new Provincial Grand Secretary, W Bro John Park, and his team, along with our Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies, W Bro Duncan McIsaac, and his team, for arranging such a well organised day on their first Annual Provincial Meeting in their official capacity.

Grateful thanks must go to all the staff at Hexham Auction Mark for all their help and fantastic service in making it such a wonderful day, not only for us, but also for our many guests.

Many thanks also to the catering staff, for the food provided for us on the day was second to none.

Well done to everyone concerned.

Magic of the Mark

The Travelling Sceptre, without the use of a Satnav,  has found its way back to Whitley Lodge of Royal Ark Mariners No 788.   It’s there to be rescued.

The Travelling Gavel has left Whitley Bay and moved from the furthest east of the Province to the furthest west and is now in the possession of Hexham Lodge of Mark Master Masons No 1141.   Perhaps it can now make its way to the far north to compete the Northumberland triangle.
