As Grand Court had decided to split the Province of Wessex into two Provinces seemingly to avoid Provincial Grand Masters and their executive having to travel as far especially as the Cornish roads in the summer are very congested and will slow travel down to a halt. Wessex having eight Courts up to the 14th April, It was decided that the Province of Wessex would have four Courts and the new Province called Dumnonia would have five. To rectify this situation on Saturday the 14th. April 2018, Most Worshipful Brother Paul W. Johnston, PGHCh, GCSM instigated to Install Provincial Grand Masters to both Provinces on the same day. Very Worshipful Deputy Provincial Grand Master Keith R. D. Waters, KSM, PGSwdB acted as the Presiding Officer and opened the Province of Wessex Grand Court in fine style. The Grand Master entered Provincial Grand Court and took the gavel from the Presiding officer thanking him for looking after the Provincial Grand Court.
