On Thursday 28th January 2016, WBro Peter Brodie was Installed as the 44th Worshipful Master of the Ashton & District Lodge of Installed Masters, or ADLIM as it is better known. Our Assistant Provincial Grand Master, WBro John Pearson, is particularly keen to see this Lodge, which until quite recently was struggling to survive, flourish. Indeed, the Installation meeting also saw the influx of a large number of newly joining members, which has already quadrupled the size of this very special Lodge. ADLIM will, from now on, be based at Mossley Masonic Hall, but it will travel around the three Masonic Halls that make up the Southern Area on a regular basis during its three meetings a year. Membership of the Lodge is very reasonable and is open to all Past Masters of Lodges in any part of the Southern Area. It is the intention of the Lodge to put on first class ceremonials and high quality lectures and demonstrations. There are already another 5 potential members waiting to join what is sure to become one of the most prestigious Lodges in the Area. Our congratulations go to Peter and to all the Officers of the Lodge, with all our best wishes for the coming year. Our congratulations also go to WBro John Pearson for he became an Honorary Member of ADLIM on the same night. We look forward to recording the future progress of this important Lodge in the Southern Area and wish the Lodge and its members all success in the future.
