Altrincham Masonic Hall played host this year to the annual dinner for Lodge Masters and Chapter First Principals in Area 3 of the Province.
Over 60 brethren were in attendance and almost every Lodge and Chapter were represented along with the members of the Area 3 committee. A delicious four course meal was enjoyed in the large dining room at Clay Lane where the brethren sat at round tables of 8 – each of which had an empty ‘reserved’ seat to facilitate the Area leaders and other committee members joining the diners for a few minutes between courses to discuss any pertinent issues.
In attendance were Deputy Grand Superintendent EComp Robert Bramley, Assistant Provincial Grand Master WBro Adrian Davies, Area 3, and the new Area 3 Assistant to the Provincial Grand Principals EComp Nick Simpson. Following the very recent redrawing of all the Provincial Area boundaries, Area 3 now includes the Lodges and Chapters which meet at Sandbach Masonic Hall and these brethren were greeted with warm applause by their colleagues. Masonic Halls represented were Sale, Altrincham, Knutsford, Northwich, Middlewich and of course Sandbach.
Following a speech by the Deputy Grand Superintendent, the Area Chairman WBro Keith Gray invited questions from the floor which were answered by the officers present. Fully satisfied that all questions were answered the event was wound up by WBro Gray just before 10pm.
