Worshipful Brother Arthur Roberts, the Founding Master of Hoose Lodge No.9920, had the greatest of pleasure and privilege of Installing his successor Worshipful Brother James Hardman on the 14th of February 2017.
This was Hoose Lodge’s first birthday, and it seemed only fitting that the Installing Master should install the Brother who had initiated him way back in the February of 1975.
The Installation was well attended even though it was St. Valentine’s Day.
The Lodge also had the pleasure of a joining member on the night; Worshipful Brother Kishore Balgobin.
Several members of the Lodge played an integral part of the Installation Ceremony, including the Lodge’s two most junior members. Brother Jason Walker; the first Initiate of Hoose Lodge presented the Third Degree Working Tools, and Brother Simon Squires presented the First Degree Working Tools. Brother Simon was only Initiated in October 2016.
