Last night the Assistant Provincial Grand Master W.Bro. William Withers hosted the annual North East Area Worshipful Master and Master Elect dinner, at the Bordon Masonic Centre. We were very pleased to welcome the Provincial Grand Master R.W.Bro. Michael J. Wilks, who was able to meet the attending Brethren and address them in regards to the role and duties of being Master of a Lodge.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Provincial Grand Master for attending, and also those Brethren who assisted in the organisation and running of the event.

Freemasons from the Alton Masonic Centre recently took part in the towns Victorian Cricket competition. This was the first year that the Alton Centre fielded a team, and all that participated commented on what an excellent event it was. At the culmination of the day the Alton Masons were presented the Barry Perkins Trophy for Sports Personalities of the Tournament.
All proceeds of the day were donated to the St. Michael’s Hospice, which includes profits from the beer tent so the donation is likely to be significant.
