Dear Brethren,

Following Worshipful Brother David William Walter Stiff’s retirement as an Assistant Provincial Grand Master at the end of March, I am pleased to announce that I have asked Worshipful Brother Stephen Michael Hyland, Past Grand Steward to be his successor, the appointment will take affect from 1st July 2023 and he will be invested at the meeting of the Kent Mark Provincial Grand Stewards Lodge on 6th September 2023.

As a consequence of Worshipful Brother Stephen Michael Hyland’s appointment, I am pleased to announce Worshipful Brother Christopher Stephen Clark, the current Provincial Deputy Grand Secretary will be promoted to the office of Provincial Grand Secretary.

I am delighted to inform you that Worshipful Brother Stephen Hyland and Worshipful Brother Christopher Clark have accepted their respective appointments.

The Province is most grateful to Worshipful Brother David Stiff for his many and significant contributions to Freemasonry in general and to the Mark Province of Kent in particular over the years in which he has held a variety of offices.

I am sure you will join me in offering these brethren every success in the future.

Kind regards,



R.W.Bro. Peter David Williams
Provincial Grand Master
Mark Province of Kent
