On Friday 12th May 2023 the new Somerset Provincial Team attended Ray Guthrie’s own Lodge, Priory that meet in Keynsham, to conduct a Raising Ceremony for Simon DeMille.
As this was the first time the team have conducted the ceremony together, it was carried out in superb form, with everyone word perfect. Richard Winter took the chair assisted by the full the Somerset Team, with Simon being an excellent candidate, delivering the answers to the questions in fine form.
A walking charge was given by Ray aided by Barrie Palmer detailing the wonderful friezes around the Hall. An excellent evening was had by all, with the Members of Priory Lodge making us all feel very welcome.
The Festive Board was superb as ever and everyone left in fine spirits, feeling happy and proud of a job well done.
