The Annual Grand Officers’ Reception at Manchester Hall gave an excellent opportunity for the Provincial Grand Master/ME Grand Superintendent, Sir David Trippier, with Lady Tripper, the opportunity to formally congratulate all those honoured by the Grand Master / First Grand Principal, the Duke of Kent, at the recent investiture meetings in London.

The Deputies in the Craft and Royal Arch, Derek Thornhill and Paul Rose, both attended, supported by several APGMs, AProvGPs and many Grand Officers together with their resplendent ladies.

The recent appointees and promotees in attendance included for the Craft: Terry Kakoullis, John Porter, Chris Stokes David Hudson, Peter Rhodes, Brian Sigsworth, Wes Marchant, John Griffin, Simon Archer and Chris Prax. For the Royal Arch: John Cavanagh, John Porter, David Dunn, Brendan Harte and Harvey Basger.
It was a tremendous social evening with great company, a splendid buffet and a relaxed atmosphere. Congratulations to all.
