A Special Evening at Lodge of Agriculture No.1199
The last regular meeting of the Lodge of Agriculture, held on Monday 18 November 2019 was very special indeed, as the provincial team took an opportunity to raise Bro James Butcher on behalf of the lodge. The Deputy Provincial Grand Master, W Bro Benjamin G W Batley, led the team, he was accompanied by assistant Provincial Grand Masters W Bro Barry L T McCormack, and W Bro Martin C Slocombe, and a very good number of active provincial officers.

The WM, W Bro Steve Chapman also took the opportunity of presenting the DPGM with a cheque for £1,199.00 towards the 2020 Festival, the amount matching The Lodge of Agriculture No Lodge number, and which is in addition to the total raised for the 5 Ashlars that The Lodge of Agriculture already holds.
