The recent meeting of Champion Conclave No 26 was indeed a ‘champion’ affair! SR Paul Joynson had a busy meeting which saw Craig Horrigan admitted as a Prince of the order in fine style with Paul taking the ceremony assisted by his officers and some willing visitors.

He then declared Nigel Dunlop as his successor and will be handing over to Nigel at the next meeting.

The brethren then enjoyed a most harmonious festive board with meat pie and chips to die for. Nigel conducted a raffle raising and excellent £70 for the charities.
