I have delayed compiling my weekly letter so that I can bring you all up to date with the proceedings of the Annual Mark Provincial Meting at the Guildhall in Portsmouth. What a day of a few surprises, the first one was the Provincial Grand Master, Rt. W. Bro. George J. Deacon had caught covid and was unable to attend. V. W. Bro. Brian Ridler, Deputy Provincial Grand Master, presided over the meeting in an excellent and efficient manner.
I sit here with the sun shining brightly, but a frost on the lawn. The weather has damaged Pat’s first lot of French beans and she has now planted some more seed which is being kept in doors to give them a better chance. Once the weather has warmed more planting will begin in earnest.
