The Deputy Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler’s Visit to Hill of Zion Conclave

The Deputy PGM visits Hill of Zion Conclave

Following a meeting of the Hill of Zion Consistory earlier in the afternoon the Conclave was opened at 5.30pm by Wy. Bro. Eustace Thompson-Shaw the Supreme Ruler. The Brethren welcomed the Deputy Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler, Wy. Bro. Colin Beerling, on his Official Visit to the Conclave, accompanied by members of the Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler’s Arch of Steel and Provincial Officers of the year. Wy. Bro. Colin introduced the members of his escort and said how much he was looking forward to this, the Installation Meeting of Hill of Zion Conclave No. 270.

He said how delighted he was to see so many members and visitors at the meeting and in bringing greetings from R.Wy. Bro. Laurie Young, Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler; he said that he would have said that such a large turnout was indeed ‘fantastic’.

Bro Tamba John was installed as Supreme Ruler by Wy. Bro. Eustace Thompson-Shaw assisted by Wy.Bro. Colin Beerling, the Deputy Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler, who gave the Address to the Supreme Ruler and also the Lecture on The Weapons - both in a faultless manner. Wy. Bro. Tamba appointed and invested the Officers for his year and the remaining business on the Agenda was duly conducted.

To round off a most enjoyable afternoon, the Brethren and their many guests enjoyed a splendid meal at the Croydon Masonic Centre.
