Our Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler and his Deputy, along with seven other Members of the Province of East Lancashire, recently crossed the Border into darkest West Yorkshire Province, to attend the Installation, by Proclamation, of V Wy Bro Timothy Crawshaw PGV, the Supreme Ruler of Odersfelt Conclave No 35 in Heckmondwyke

The visit was immensely successful, due to the Excellence of the Ceremony and not least, the usual, tremendous hospitality, which is always, afforded to us foreigners from Lancashire.

Visits to Odersfelt Conclave and to Roses Conclave in Elland West Yorkshire are just some of the highlights of our Secret Monitor year, as are the reciprocal visits by the Members of the Province of West Yorkshire, to Roses in Concord Conclave No 185.  These visits have been enjoyed by many Members of the Province for 20 years and some strong, lasting bonds of friendship between the two Counties have built up over the years.

If you have never taken part in the Cross Border Raids and would like to experience true Yorkshire hospitality at its best, just drop an e-mail to our Provincial Grand Recorder, osmeastlancs1@gmail.com, it’s as simple as that!
