On the 2nd February 2022, Worshipful Brother Laurance Bennett was installed into the chair at Eastfields Lodge, becoming the third generation of the Bennett household to attain such a rank within Freemasonry.
W.Bro Bennett replaces W.Bro Guy Watt, who had the unenviable job of leading Eastfields through two of the toughest years that the lodge has ever faced. W. Bro.Watt's term was ravaged by the pandemic and he did a sterling job through the most difficult of times.
Here's hoping our newly installed Master has a less challenging time!
We were honoured to be joined by a goodly number of visitors, including Asst. PGM W.Bro D Butcher, accompanied by Proc. DepGDC W. Bro. W. Farrell, as well as PGtdB W. Bro T Burt and PGStdB W.Bro. D Liddington.
It was fantastic to see so many brethren attend the installation and the subsequent festive board.
During the Festive Board, a very moving poem was read by Bro. Steve Allen and a copy of the poem was also presented to the newly installed Master.
