Also attending with their Ladies were the Provincial Grand Master Alexander Sillars McLaren together with the Assistants Anthony John Davies and Gerald Noel Howard Young.

Each year this event is moved around the Province and includes the photograph with the Masters and Commanders of the year.

A superb five course meal including wine was enjoyed by all. After the Loyal Toast, the PGM thanked everybody for coming and hoped that new friends were made. The fellowship continued well after the official proceedings.

Snow, Snow, Thick Thick Snow, Charity Stewards Event on the 3rd March Re Arranged

DUE TO THE ADVERSE WEATHER,The Provincial Charity Steward has decided to wait until the Weather warms up a bit and we can take off our big coats and has rescheduled the Idol Frets Littleborough leg of their Never Ending World Tour Concert and it will now be held on the Saturday the 24th March at 7:30 pm at Littleborough Cricket Club.

The concert features the rock (not heavy) band IDOL FRETS on their never ending world tour, which features some amazing instrumentalists. As you can imagine we were very lucky that they were able to alter their busy schedule to accommodate us.
The concert will commence at 7.30 pm and the ticket cost is £10 also includes a curry supper and disco and we are sure that this particular evening will be very entertaining.
There will also be a raffle at the interval.
Tickets purchased for the original date will still be valid and if you can now make the new date tickets are available from George Scaife the Provincial Grand Charity Steward.
