A cold and wet Monday night in January saw members of Boltonian Lodge 3716, and many officers of the Bolton and Farnworth District Team, have their hearts warmed by seeing Brother Craig Charnock installed in the Chair of King Solomon by his good friend and Provincial Steward, WBro Lee Gridley.

A faultless performance by WBro Gridley, enjoyed by everyone present, was then followed by the younger members of the lodge excellently presenting the working tools to the newly installed Master. This was made more impressive by the fact that Boltonian Lodge is blessed with members whose English is not their first language.

Bro Jeffrey Casiano – Working Tools of a Fellowcraft Freemason
Bro Paul Nufable – Working Tools of an Entered Apprentice Freemason

This was followed by a stirring rendition of the Address to the Brethren by the Representative of the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master for the evening, WBro M T Holland. PAGDC.

The ceremony was followed by a great atmospheric festive board, at which the Brethren present encountered a twist – everyone was to sing the Master’s Song to the newly installed Master!
