The prestigious Tortworth Court was again the venue for Provincial Grand Lodge, in which the Provincial Grand Master installed his officers for his final year in charge of the Province. RW Bro Tim Henderson-Ross also announced that next year he will install his successor. it has been another positive year in which Gloucestershire masonry has marked a number of achievements. Not least of these has been the reaching of its upwardly revised Project 21 target of £315,000 in only 18 months, meaning that the three major hospitals in the county will have received much needed mobile scanners ahead of schedule. In a successful and slick ceremony, the PGM appointed three brethren from Hambrook Lodge to active offices; Will Durman is the new Provincial Senior Grand Warden, Craig Tickner takes over the Provincial Grand Registrar’s post, and Mike Blackmore joins the DC’s team as Provincial Assistant Grand Director of Ceremonies.
