A Double Celebration

Just like buses, they don't come along often, then you get two at once.

The November meeting saw a double celebration at Cockcoft Conclave No.25 with Wy.Bro. Ian Williams P.A.G.D.C. and Wy.Bro Albert Young P.A.G.D.C. having reached the huge milestone of 51 and year years respectively of continued service to the Order of the Secret Monitor.

The evening was marked by a visit from the Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler, R.Wy.Bro. Christian Alexander Givvons visit the Conclave alone with his team of acting officers of the year.
Following the procession into the Conclave, the Supreme Ruler Michael Boyce Prov.B.B. handed the gavel to the Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler and on this occasion he informed him that he was happy to receive it and on this occasion he would retain it and take the chair.

He then invited both celebrates to be seated at the front of the Conclave and then began to entail the conclave with both biographies before presenting both Ian and Albert with their certificates and jewels.

Following this part of the ceremony the conclave was please to take a ballot on two joining members, Wy.Bro Nigel Dunlop and Wy.Bro David Greenhalgh, following the ballot, Nigel was quickly invested as the Conclaves Secretary and David as a visiting Deacon.

It was a great evening for Secret Monitor Masonry and Cockcroft Conclave which also was witnessed by the Immediate Past Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler, R.Wy.Bro. Frank G.H. Smith as he is a member of the Conclave.
