DGP’s Address to District Grand Council
Distinguished guests, brethren all, I have already made so many ‘welcomes’ here but let me, once again welcome you all to our District Meeting. I do appreciate the support you have all given by making the effort to be here today, our numbers are up this year, yet again, and it certainly enhances any meeting to have good numbers.
It continues, for me, to be an enormous privilege to hold the office of District Grand Prefect for London and I am conscious of this every time that I visit a council or when I represent you in other Districts. Between Steven, myself and the Wardens of the year we have visited widely across the District and on every occasion we have been met with all we would expect from this Order – good Companionship, well worked ceremonies and an enthusiasm and commitment to the Allied Masonic Degrees.
Before I go too much further I must thank those who make such an effort to ensure that everything in our District goes smoothly and efficiently.
Today we see the stepping down of two stalwarts of the District, Philip Freedman as DC and Doug Hopton as Treasurer, I cannot thank them enough for their commitment, loyalty and dedication to this District and our Order, we welcome Mike Adkins and Gordon Trew to take over those roles, both are highly experience and very well respected Masons and we are fortunate that they are dedicating their efforts to us in such important positions.
