Provincial Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons of Kent
Grand Lodge Appointments and Promotions

On Friday 3rd April 2020 the Grand Secretary, R. W. Bro. Ryan A. Williams dispatched emails to select members of the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons of England and Wales offering them appointments and promotions in Mark Grand Lodge.

We are delighted to announce that the Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent, GCVO, has been pleased to appoint or promote the following Brethren from our Province;

First Appointments
Deputy Grand Inspector of Works (Active)   David Richard King
Past Assistant Grand Director of Ceremonies   Peter Roy Smith Obit
Past Assistant Grand Sword Bearer   Richard Ernest Atkins
Past Assistant Grand Sword Bearer   Philip Charles Clare
Past Assistant Grand Sword Bearer   Elliott Neil Cowton
Grand Standard Bearer (Active)   Jack William Jarvis
Past Grand Standard Bearer   Philip John Crouch
Grand Inner Guard (Active)   David John Merrick
Grand Steward (Active)   Christopher Stephen Clark

Past Grand Junior Overseer   William Albert James Taylor
Past Grand Senior Deacon   John Edward Lacey
Past Grand Junior Deacon   Patrick Flanagan
Past Grand Junior Deacon   John William Linkin

Other Appointments
Deputy President of the Mark Benevolent Fund   David Frederick Ashbolt
Owing to the current suspension of Masonic activity the June Communication of Grand Lodge, when those receiving first appointments are scheduled be honoured, is extremely unlikely to take place. With this in mind it has been deemed that those receiving first appointments may assume their deserved new rank from 9th June, the date that the meeting would have been held. It is hoped that the investitures will take place in September when those honoured with promotion are normally recognised. More details will follow in due course.
