Provincial Grand Chapter Finishes The Year In Style

28th February 2023

Wednesday 15th February saw the officers of Provincial Grand Chapter sojourn to the furthest point north in the Province for the final visit of the year at Berwick upon Tweed Royal Arch Chapter No.393, which meets at Berwick Masonic Hall.

The huge turnout of officers, led by the Most Excellent Grand Superintendent, E.Comp Ian Craigs, and his Deputy, E.Comp  Gordon Craigs, witnessed the Chapter membership successfully ballot for a re-joining member, Install the Third Principal Elect into his office and E.Comp Mike Hallsworth deliver the first part of the Royal Tracing Board Lecture.

Congratulations to all last year’s officers on a very productive year in office, from everyone at Northumberland Freemasons, and we look forward to welcoming the new officers who will be appointed, re-appointed and promoted at the upcoming Annual Provincial Royal Arch Chapter Convocation.
