Our PGM RW.Bro. Keith Beardmore  -  Zooms In
Today’s Craft Webinar had the pleasure of our own PGM Keith Beardmore online who gave a great account of what the Mark Degree is all about from its early beginnings right up to present date. He spoke with affection for the Happy Degree and all its members and how much he always enjoys the Ceremony of Advancement, be it on a Team Visit or on the occasions when he just turns up, (well not quite he does inform the WM of the Lodge and the Secretary to save them having a heart attack) He likes to have a good chat with the Candidate before he enters and put him at ease, of course as all of us who know Keith he is always ready to spend time with you and listen to what you have to say whatever your position or rank in the Degree.
The PGM intends sharing his plans on the 16th of March for restarting the Mark and RAM Lodges and  any plans for holding Provincial Grand Lodge and the Royal Ark Assembly along with what Lodges will need to have in place for their first face to face meetings.
A few more pictures, a few more memories see if you can spot yourself from our happy times together, here’s another saying, “you’re a stranger only once”, I’m really looking forward to my next meeting be it in Urmston, Blackpool, Lancaster or as far away as Barrow, see all my friends and those I have yet to meet.  
Take Care Out There, Stay Safe stay in touch with all your family and friends, fingers crossed with a bit of luck and many, many more jabs it will soon be over.
