Robinson Royal Ark Mariner Lodge 255 Elevates Provincial Junior Grand Warden

Paddock Wood's Robinson Lodge of Royal Ark Mariners No. 255 held a truly outstanding meeting on Tuesday February 18th.

Firstly, the Lodge had an Elevation on the agenda. This was for none other than our very own Provincial Grand Junior Warden, Bro. Chris Metherell.

Chris is a member of the Grand Master’s Lodge of Instruction so it was necessary to keep him away from the preparations as, unbeknown to him, a team from the Grand Master’s Lodge of Instruction arrived and subsequently took up various offices in the Lodge. The Worshipful Commander, W. Bro. Gary Shiells, retained his office and delivered a truly excellent Ceremony of Elevation with all present playing their parts well.

As if this were not enough, the Lodge, having already considerably exceeded the donation required to attain the 2020 Festival Platinum Award, donated a further £600 towards the 2020 Festival. This donation was gratefully received by the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, W. Bro. Fred Brown RAMGR, who thanked the Lodge for its tremendous and ongoing support for the great works of the Mark Benevolent Fund.
