It was a very happy and enjoyable Installation Meeting at St Nicholas Royal Ark Mariners Lodge No.540 in Ilfracombe when, W Bro Julian Turner Installed W Bro David Williams into the Chair of Noah. It is the second time that W Bro Williams has been Installed as Commander of the Lodge.

After the Installation the APGM was then afforded the honour of presenting Bro Michael O'Meara with the certificate of a Royal Ark Mariner.  The evening then went on to sucessfully ballot for another candidate for Elevation into the Lodge.  So the 'new' Worshipful Commander, David Williams and his team will be carrying out an elevation ceremony in the future and would be delighted to see as many members of the Ancient and Honorable Fraternity at that meeting.  To top the evening off, the WCN on behalf of the Lodge also presented the APGM with a most generous cheque for £300 to go to the Devon Mark Charities Association.  

The evening was concluded with a buffet supper which was enjoyed by all who attended.
