Provincial Assembly of Wessex 2015, Perranporth

WESSEX May 2015


The 2015 Provincial Assembly of Wessex hosted by King Hywel of Cornwall No. 69 met at the Court's usual venue at The Masonic Hall, Liskey Hill, Perranporth, Cornwall. TR6 0HR on the 16th May 2015.


Preceding the Provincial meeting, the Court held their Installation meeting. The ceremony progressed very smoothly using the new ritual, to the great delight of all involved. This was not surprising as the Province had asked the Assistant Grand Master R.W. Bro. Dr. Christopher W.G.Ansell, GCh, GCSM to take the chair of King Athelstan to perform the ceremony of Installation.

The Master elect Bro. Peter T. Emmerson commented after the ceremony that he was privileged to be involved with the new ritual, and felt honoured that he had been Installed by the Assistant Grand Master in such a faultless way.

Continuing after a short break the Provincial Grand Assembly commenced. The Provincial Grand Master R.W.Bro. Malcolm J. Burns, GCSM, greeted all attending and named and thanked those guests from other Provinces that had travelled so far to attend this meeting.


The usual business continued then R.W.Bro. Roy Leavers, KSM, SGW, and chairman of Cyningston 10-90 was invited by the Provincial Grand Master to address the brethren with the progress of the appeal.

The outcome of the address was that after consideration the Province voted to donate £500.00 from the Province Funds and presented the chairman with a cheque for that amount(see picture).


A wonderful and interesting talk that was researched & presented by W.Bro. David Attwater, ProvGOrganist entitled “The Halliwell Manuscripts or Regius Poem”  which will be made available online shortly.


Members and visitors then retired to the dining room for an excellent meal. More pictures can be viewed in the members picture gallery after logging in.
