On Thursday 11 May 2017, the Deputy Provincial Grand Master paid an official visit to Ravensmead and Mandalay Lodge of Royal Ark Mariners 1886.

After a brief but enjoyable meeting, the meeting of Mandalay Mark 1886 took place. Not only was the Lodge honoured to have the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, VW Bro David Green, present but also a Right Worshipful Brother and a very Worshipful Brother from the Province of Hertfordshire. With two Brethren newly Advanced into the Degree, it was a truly enjoyable and successful meeting.

The Lodge rounded off the day by making a donation of £750 to sponsor the Kent MBF Walk team. An astounding ending to a very successful day!
