Humbre77-inst2014Humbre Court No. 77 held its annual installation on Thursday 23rd October 2014, during which the outgoing Master, W.Bro. Bob Wallace had the pleasing duty of placing Bro. Adrian Rounce into the Masters chair.


In addition to the Court officers, W.Bro. Wallace was also ably assisted by VW Bro. Tony Burke and W.Bro. John Broughton.


A short talk entitled 'Masonry's fist Royal Patron' was given by Bro. Ken Eyre, which proved very enlightening in many ways, and illustrated the effort and enthusiasm Ken has invested in his research of the subject.


We wish Adrian a most successful and enjoyable year as Master of Humbre Court No. 77., and feel sure that he will prove to be a great asset to the Court.
