The Provincial Grand Master, R.W. Bro. George John Deacon, accompanied by the Assistant Provincial Grand Master, W. Peter Lewis and Officers of Provincial Grand Lodge attended the The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Installed Mark Masters Lodge No.1687 on Wednesday 29 May 2019 at Botley.
Following the closure of the Lodge Meeting The Sussex Mark Ancient Re-enactment Team (SMART) gave a demonstration of a Ceremony of Advancement. It was a very enjoyable demonstration and was met with great acclaim by all the Brethren present.
The Provincial Grand Master was extremely pleased with the fantastic turnout for this, and the previous evening. He was delighted to see members from all over the Province, and again such a large turnout from the Provincial Team. He reminded Brethren that the Provincial Team will always be available to provide support to the Mark and RAM lodges throughout the Province of Hampshire and Isle of Wight.
