The Royal Naval Lodge installation meeting was held on the 9 December 2022.
W Bro Al Watkins was installed into the Chair of King Solomon, with W Bro John Rawlings taking on the role as Installing Master.
Our new WM proceeded then to impeccably install his Officers for the year.
The Lodge was graced with the presence of W Bro Anthony Guthrie APGM who delivered the charge to our WM.
Downstairs we celebrated with excellent food, company and Christmas Carols to get everyone into the festive spirit.
We were blessed with 22 visitors (including my old man), with a total of 54 Dining.
Congratulations W Bro Al Watkins for achieving the Chair of King Solomon.
Well done to W Bro Ed Cole for his fantastic year in the chair.
