The Provincial Grand Master, Prof. Denovan Keith Wilson, has great pleasure in announcing that the following Brethren have been offered, and have accepted, Provincial Grand Rank in the Ancient and Honourable Fraternity of Royal Ark Mariner.
Pandemic restrictions permitting, they are due to be invested with their new Rank at The Annual Provincial Assembly on Friday 26th March 2021, to be held at Ferryhill Masonic Chambers, and their new Rank will be effective as of that date if the Annual Assembly cannot be held.
Congratulations to these Brethren on their preferment, and we wish them many years to enjoy their new Rank.
