Brethren and Companions,

You will be aware that on Wednesday 17th February the Area held it’s Presidential Grand Patronage meeting at Oaklands Hall, Hyde, where we celebrated those Lodges and Chapters who had achieved the magnificent milestone of Presidential Grand Patronage, Grand Patronage and Patronage of the 2016 Festival.

The collection at that meeting made the absolutely magnificent sum of £20,571.

To those Lodges and Chapters who attended the meeting to celebrate with the RW Provincial Grand Master and his entourage, and most especially to those who made donations, large and small, to this final collection meeting I pass on my grateful thanks.

David Littlewood
