On Tuesday 1st November the Royal Yorkshire Lodged passed Brother Gavin Douglas to the second degree. The ceremony was attended by a number of brethren of the lodge. Although, due to unavoidable circumstances of some brethren were not able to attend, so two of the brethren had to step in at short notice to assist with the ceremony. The worshipful master thanked them for their assistance.
Brother Gavin described it as an excellent ceremony and thanked both his proposer and seconder as well as the brethren of the lodge. He also said he was looking forward to being raised at a future meeting. The meeting concluded with an excellent festive board.
