NEWS From the Provincial Grand Court of Wessex
Provincial Appointments - Team Visits Due to the cancellation of the Provincial Grand Lodge meeting it will not now be possible for the Provincial Grand Master to invest those officers he has appointed to Provincial Grand Rank and proposed to invest on 25th April. Their seniority will nevertheless count from that date and those Brethren affected should wear the regalia of their new ranks as soon as they are able to meet again. In order to invest those brethren at the earliest opportunity the Provincial Grand Master has tasked his Deputy and our Provincial Grand Marshall with organising a series of Provincial visits to each of our Courts, such visits to take place at the earliest opportunity. Investitures will therefore take place on a Court by Court basis rather than at a Provincial Grand Court. On each occasion the PGM will be accompanied by a team of Provincial officers. Clearly a good turnout of active Provincial officers is hoped for, especially amongst the senior officers (PGM, DepPGM, Prior, Wardens and Marshall), but also from the escorting ranks, drawn from both present and past ranks. Having a good turnout will make the occasion all the more memorable for those brethren being invested. The Provincial Grand Marshall will therefore contact relevant brethren in the coming weeks to ascertain their availability. It is appreciated there will be some uncertainty as to dates and it may not be possible for a number of brethren to commit at an early stage but it will assist the Provincial Grand Marshall greatly if you are at least able to give him an indication of your willingness to participate in each visit. Until such time as we are able to meet again, please stay safe. I look forward to seeing you all again before too long. Andrew Barrett Deputy Provincial Grand Master 15th April 2020
