John was promoted to PProv GJW in May and they should have been sat at one of the tables relaxing but they were busy supervising the preparation and  serving of the meal.

The Provincial Grand Master then had a most pleasant duty to perform. Barbara Peters had organised a Christmas Gala Party and had raised £3,000 for the 2021 Festival, follow this link to read about the event

The PGM was pleased to present Barbara with a Gold Patrons Brooch and a certificate  marking the contribution she had made to the Fund.


He went on to say that there were awards available for Ladies who contributed to the Mark Benevolent Fund and that after conferring with the PGM’s of other neighbouring Provinces he was pleased to say that this was the first of these awards presented in the  North of the Country.

The award can be worn as a broach or can be attached to a chain and worn as a necklace.
