The PGM/MEGSupt, Sir David Trippier, with Lady Ruth, hosted the Annual Dinner for the Leaders of the Province with their Wives and partners at Manchester Hall. This year the Royal Arch and Craft teams shared the evening together, demonstrating the strong link between and unity of the two Orders.

An exceptional atmosphere, superb food, mirth and merriment punctuated a splendid evening.
We ‘dined out’ recently retired members of the teams, Norman Cope, David Thompson and Paul Aspinall.
The evening gave Sir David an ideal opportunity to thank the Ladies for the tremendous support they give to Freemasonry and their Husbands, during which he highlighted that behind every successful man stood an astonished Mother in Law!
The Past and Present 2nd Provincial Grand Principals, David Thompson and Harvey Basger.
Thanks to the Provincial Grand Secretary, Martin Roche, who this evening was accompanied by his niece (centre), for arranging such a excellent evening.
