An update from Father of the Lodge and PM Lionel Frewin
With my connections to Somerset masonry, I was fortunate to obtain a ticket to attend the above Quarterly Communication at Grand Lodge at which the business of the day was:
The Installation of RW Bro Jonathan Spence, Deputy Grand Master, as Pro Grand Master
The Installation of RW Bro Sir David Hugh Wootton, Assistant Grand Master as Deputy Grand Master
The Installation of RW Bro David Medlock, DL, Provincial Grand Master for Somerset, as Assistant Grand Master.
The Grand Temple was packed to capacity with Masons from around the country/world, including Grand Masters or their representatives from over forty overseas jurisdictions.
I understand that it was a very special event as never before had three 'Right Worshipfuls' been installed at the same time and of course it coincided with the death of the Monarch.
I also joined the 750 Masons who attended lunch at the Connaught Rooms which followed the meeting and was sat with two previous Somerset GM's, the current Queens Master and also had a brief conversation with our own PGM Ian Chandler.
