The Internet Conclave, Supera Moras No 49 held its installation meeting in the idyllic surroundings of Rawtenstall Masonic Hall. This conclave travels the province as well as other provinces and its membership are scattered far and wide. It was the turn of Bro I Brian Tynan to be installed into the chair of Supreme Ruler in fine style by WyBro Paul Joynson. Paul has been very busy recently and performed the installation perfectly having just inducted two candidates into his other conclave just two days previously.

The conclave was honoured by the presence of WyBro Chris Givvons who is the Deputy PGSR of our province and is also the Conclave recorder. In attendance was his counterpart from West Midlands, WyBro U Patel. They in turn were joined by other Acting Officers from the Province of East Lancashire as this was a team visit and all those officers attending were introduced to the conclave by Chris at the beginning of the meeting.

Paul and his officers then proceeded to install Brain in a well worked ceremony under the direction of the Director of Ceremonies WyBro Stephen Holcroft who also presented the weapons to the newly installed Supreme Ruler.

The festive board was enjoyed by all, a superb meal served to the usual high standard found at this venue. Chris in his response to the various toasts updated the brethren with future Provincial events and details of the next meeting  of Supera Moras, to be held Saturday 21st April at Hyde masonic hall when three new candidates will be admitted in a ‘triple’ ceremony, well worth a visit and a date to save in the diary.
