APGM WBro Norman Cope with Bro Jay, the newly installed Master

On Saturday 9th January 2016, Old Boltonians Lodge No 5814 Installed Bro W A Jay in the Chair of King Solomon.

WBro W A Jay (Senior) PProvDepGSwdB, who resided in the Junior Warden’s chair, took position as installing master so he could install his son in to the Chair of King Solomon.
A faultless and sincere ceremony was performed by WBro Jay and the members of Old Boltonians Lodge during the installation of Bro Jay. This was witnessed by over 120 Brethren including the Assistant Provincial Grand Master, WBro Norman Cope PSGD, as well as brethren from East & West Lancashire and further afield. WBro Cope congratulated Bro Jay on becoming Worshipful Master and also congratulated WBro Jay on the superb job he had done during the installation. WBro Jay was word perfect and conducted himself with the highest of standards, having the opportunity to install his own son.
After this fantastic ceremony, followed the festive board which was supported by all the brethren who attended the meeting. A fun filled evening was had by all, with lots of laughter and a superb atmosphere.
