A particular highlight of the meeting, and an honour for our District, was the selection of Ill∴Bro. Alex McLaren as the Representative Candidate for the 31° ceremony and a place at the festive board top table next to the Sovereign Grand Commander, Most Puissant Brother Alan Englefield 33°.

We offer our congratulations to all three newly promoted Brethren, we hope that their further advancement in the Order will give them much satisfaction and that they will treasure the happy memories of this special occasion for many years to come.
