It was the Promotions Meeting for the Province of Durham yesterday in a rather snowy Dunston.
I, as a Provincial Grand Steward, spent a chunk of time out in the cold and damp, first collecting everything from storage to help set up the Lancastrian Suite for the meeting, then standing out in the horrible weather on car park duty, and finally loading the van up at the end of the meeting!
Our own WBro Martin Nicholson, who had been an acting Provincial Senior Grand Deacon on his first appointment, was promoted to Past Provincial Grand Registrar. A very well deserved honour for a very active mason.
We were also witness to WBro John Thompson being invested as our new Assistant Provincial Grand Master on the retirement of WBro David Sanders Hay.
A good, albeit long, day out.
