On Saturday 18th February at Middlewich Masonic Hall, we witnessed an excellent afternoon and evening during which WBro Rick Bradfield was superbly installed into the chair of the John Brunner Lodge.
After opening the lodge and initial business Bro Thomas Martin Browne welcomed VWBro Alan Glazier, DPGM, to the lodge followed by a similar warm welcome to RWBro Gordon Robertson the Provincial Grand Master of Buckinghamshire.
