Under the technical guidance of the Provincial Secretary, W.Bro. Chris Elliott, the Worshipful Master , W.Bro. Paul Whittaker welcomed the brethren of the Lodge and the visiting brethren from the Province particularly the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, V.W.Bro. David Purdie, the W.M. Elect of Pleiades Mark Lodge, Bro. Andy Chapman and W.Bro. Cyril Whittaker Secretary of Friendship Lodge of Mark Masters No.16T.I. who was finding out how to Zoom a meeting. 

The letter of dispensation and the Dispensation was read by W.Bro. Peter Brewer the Secretary and we moved swiftly to the business of the Lodge. Minutes of the last meeting and reports were read and accepted.  It was very encouraging that all the Officers agreed to carry on until such times as an installation could happen. Even more encouraging was that there is a candidate for Advancement waiting and we also heard that an application for membership of De La Pole Lodge of  Royal Ark Mariners was requested.

A very happy meeting was then closed and an informal chat then ensued with very appreciative comments from all present. W.Bro. Simon Dunn was delighted to have been able to join the brethren from his home now in Hertfordshire saying how much he had missed his Mark Masonry and the Members of De La Pole.
