On Tuesday 1st February, the Lodge held its annual installation meeting, which was last held in February 2020. At the ceremony WBro David T Key was installed as Master by current Master WBro Mark Exley, who because of COVID 19 had served as Master for 2 years. Due to concerns about COVID 19 it was decided not to invite visitors to the ceremony.
WBro Key was last installed as Master in 2010 and since then has served a number of offices in the lodge. WBro Key is also one of three members of the Key family who are members of the Lodge, as both his father and son are members. During the ceremony he invested his son as Senior Warden and spoke of how special it was to see his son progress through the various degrees.
The incoming Master paid tribute to the installing Master for the work he had done during pandemic in keeping the lodge together. The meeting was concluded with an excellent festive board which included 3 courses and a cheese board.
