The Lodge was opened by the Worshipful Master, VW.Bro. Michael Barnes, PGMO, PDepProvGM, and the minutes and accounts were approved. The Master Elect, W.Bro. Jack Love, was presented to the Installing Master, VW.Bro. Michael Barnes, who addressed him. After a Board of Installed Masters was declared W.Bro. Jack recited his Obligation, was invested with the Collar and Jewel of his Office and placed in the Chair of the Knightsbridge Lodge of Mark Master Masons. W.Bro. Jack then appointed and invested his Officers.

W.Bro. Richard Knox and W.Bro. Tim Ford were declared elected to the Offices of Worshipful Master and Treasurer. After an Address from the Worshipful Master the Lodge was closed in due form and we retired to the bar.

We were then called into the dining room to be treated to a sumptuous 6 course meal specially prepared by W.Bro. Robbie Dobbie and his team at Glenmore House.

Knightsbridge Mark Lodge is a special interest Lodge dedicated to fine dining. Special interest Lodges are springing up all over the country and whether for scouting, sport, fine dining or other purposes, are helping to bring together Brethren with similar interests. Whether by creating a new Lodge or breathing life into a failing one, they are helping to keep Masonry relevant and forming even closer ties among Brethren. Any Brother with an idea for, or wishing advice for, a special interest Lodge should contact W Bro. John French, the Assistant Provincial Grand Master in charge of recruitment and retention through W.Bro. Tim Ford, Provincial Grand Secretary: provgsec@markmastermasons.org.uk
