After the Court had been opened the Deputy Master called upon R W Bro Noel A B Grout for a Eulogy in respect of Bro John A Dalley. R W Bro Noel, in a very moving eulogy, reminded the Brethren of all the many Masonic Orders that Bro John, a Past Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler in the Order of the Secret Monitor, had held high Officers in as well as his commitment to the Church and the local community where he lived. The Brethren stood together in silent tribute to the loss of a very dear Brother and Friend.

The Court having elected 10 senior Freemasons as Joining Members were then privileged to be present when Bro Theodore-Eddie Kalogeropoulos and Bro Nick Ellwood were Instructed into the Order. The ceremony was conducted by the Master of the Court, M W Bro Paul W Johnston assisted by R W Bro Roy Leavers and R W Bro Lionel Mee and the Officers of the Court in a most exemplary manner.

Bro Nigel Harding was then elected as Deputy Master for the ensuing year.

Bro John Ward, who is currently the Mayor of Farnham in Surrey, later had his picture taken with the Worshipful Master of the Court, the Deputy Master and other Brethren.

After the meeting the Brethren were treated to a superb Surbiton meal, which surpassed their very excellent high standards.
