At Bank Terrace with King Oswald Lodge No.462 on Wednesday the 11th of April, WBro Raymond Tattersall PProvGSwdB was presented with a decanter and glasses to recognise his effort in two seperate District Officer Roles.
From 2007-2010, Raymond was the former Accrington District Charity Steward. From 2016-2018, he was a Royal Arch District Officer in the East Ribble District.
District Chairman WBro Dave McGurty PProvGSwdB asked the Lodge DC WBro John Hargreaves PProvSGW, to bring a very suprised WBro Tattersall to the WM’s pedestal, where he presented him with his engraved decanter and glasses on behalf of the District, remarking that this Presentation not only recognises Raymond’s work in District Offices, but also the encouragement, time and support he has always given to many Junior and fellow Brethren.
WBro McGurty then invited WBro Paul Aspinall PAGDC, stepping in for his successor WBro Brian Carter PAGDC and  APGP who had been called to stand in and Rep at Padiham at the last minute, to present Raymond with a bottle of Dalmore 15yr old Single Malt Whisky on behalf of all of his colleagues on the East Ribble District Team.
Finally, WBro John Farrington PSGD, Assistant Provincial Grand Master,  presented Raymond with a bouquet of flowers for Mrs Valerie Tattersall in recognition of her much appreciated patience and support over many years.
