Consecration of Upmunstra Court No. 121


It was a red-letter day within the Province of Essex when the Grand Master, accompanied by his team, consecrated the new court in Upminster on Monday 30th January 2017.

 It was an early start, with Provincial Grand Court being opened by the Provincial Grand Master at 0900 at which the Instruction Ceremony for the fourteen founders, who were not already Court Master Masons, was conducted by RW Bro. Roy Leavers and W Bro. Martin Bates. The Provincial Grand Master then conducted the Entrusting Ceremony for the Primus Immediate Past Master, Bro. John Simons, ably assisted by W Bro. Simon Walsh.

Grand Court was opened by the Most Worshipful Grand Master at 11.30 a.m., when he proceeded to conduct the Ceremony of Consecration in his customary dignified and impeccable manner.

The meeting was attended by a total of thirty four founders and thirty nine other brethren including the Grand Master’s Consecrating Team and other brethren from within the Province and from other Provinces, who enjoyed an excellent lunch, which was honoured by the presence of Right Worshipful Brother Rodney Bass, Provincial Grand Master for the Craft in Essex; all in all a splendid day which was enjoyed by all present.
