*Signifies an appointment put forward from outside the Province of Kent.

Owing to the current suspension of Masonic activity in line with the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, the June Communication of Grand Lodge, when those receiving first appointments are scheduled be honoured, will not take place. With this in mind it has been deemed that those receiving first appointments may assume their deserved new rank from Tuesday 8th June, the date that the meeting would have been held. It is planned that the investitures will take place at the September Communication when those honoured with promotion are normally recognised. More details will follow in due course.
