Quite a long way for Black Pudding!

Rochdale Masonic Hall was the venue for the 2019 District meeting, which saw over 100 brethren in attendance. Many had traveled along way to join Mervyn Wilson, the head of the East Lancashire district and many of its members. Brethren had travelled from Kent, London, and Surrey.

This included R W Bro John French the District Grand Prefect of Surrey and his deputy W.Bro Bob Tuthill, over 280 miles each way just to taste the black pudding!

Mervyn welcomed everyone to Rochdale and then proceed to appoint and invest his officers for the year. Trevor Jewitt unfolded and delivered his final report before retiring after six years as District Secretary with thanks from Mervyn fo all his hard work.

The ceremony and processions was perfect and wonderful to see all done under the watchful eye of District Director of Ceremonies Chris Welton. Surrey agreed this was one of the best Ceremonials they had witnessed.

Following a successful and enjoyable meeting the brethren retired to the lovely surroundings of the dining room to enjoy a drink and a the traditional starter of black pudding followed by the main course of ‘Rag Pudding’.
