The installation ceremony held on 4th November 2016 was a celebration of the many years of Square and Compasses Lodge meeting at Clifton Road Birkenhead in Area 2 and a launch party for the lodge transfer to Area 4.
Former members of Square and Compasses were on hand to install the new Worshipful Master, WBro Stephen Headdock, ProvJGW, and the Installing master was WBro David Pierce, PPrGSupWks, who conducted the ceremony in an excellent manner. Proceedings were ably directed by WBro Philip Rowland, PAGDC, and an excellent rendition of the Master’s Song, together with a moving toast to Absent Brethren, delivered by WBro Bruce Harry, PJGD.
On hand to oversee the transfer of the warrant to Area 4 were Assistant Provincial Grand Masters, WBros Adrian Davies and David Dyson (Areas 2 and 4 respectively) who both wished the lodge success and prosperity for the future in its new format as a travelling lodge based at Hyde Masonic Hall.
The evening was rounded off with a rousing chorus of Auld Lang Syne, all present at Clifton Road joining hands around the festive board.
